For the most part, psychic people don't care what skeptics think. To be truthful, I don't either. I argue merely for the sake of a good intellectual discussion and to understand skeptics better. There is no chance though that I'm ever going to think you're right because I have direct personal experience with psychic phenomena. Nothing beats it. Once you've seen a tree, no one is going to convince you that they don't exist. It's the same with psychic ability.
Some people may have other motives than monetary to contribute to our collective knowledge of how the universe works. There's a person on the skeptiko site who is working with Dr. Persinger to better understand what she experiences. As far as I know she doesn't expect to make a dime off it, but her case will help forward the field.
