Often believed, by those who don't understand the term's origin, to be spelt (or spelled, for the American audience) 'sike'.

Deriving from the word psychology, psych is a term used to indicate that whatever the person speaking just said was done so purely to mess with the listener's mind, to 'psych' them out, if you will.

The newest nad coolest show on the USA follows the life of Shawn Spencer(James Roday) and his friend Gus(Dule Hill)as they solve murder cases for the Santa Barbra Police Department.
