    Bei einer Konzertprobe sagt Prince "Let me introduce the band to you. Come here guys!".

    Die Bandmitglieder kommen daraufhin hinter ihren Instrumenten hervor und versammeln sich um ihn.

    Prince sagt dann "Psyche!", und die Bandmitglieder sagen "Oh man!!"

    Heißt das so etwas wie "Haha, ver*rscht!"?

    Siehe auch: psych - reingelegt

    Example, Hey, look a monster behind you. Psych or sike or what?

    When you are saying like haha, I got you or something like that.


    Gotcha! is said (amongst other things) when you have fooled someone successfully; for example if you played an April Fool's trick on someone and they believed it to be true (they "fell for it"), you might say "Gotcha!" when revealing it was a trick. "Psych!" is similar; it's short for "I was psyching you out!" (or similar phrases). It is admitting that you played a "psychological" trick on someone by telling them something believable but untrue.



    psych – 1: PSYCHOANALYZE

    2 a: to anticipate correctly the intentions or actions of : OUTGUESS

    b: to analyze or figure out (something, such as a problem or course of action) ...

    3 a: to make psychologically uneasy : INTIMIDATE, SCARE ...

    —often used with 'out'

    has a way of psyching out the competition

    b: to make (someone, such as oneself) psychologically ready especially for performance —often used with 'up'

    psyched herself up for the race



    It's evidently a misspelling for 'psych' /saik/, which is the verb. The dictionaries don't include it as a slang interjection meaning, more or less, 'Gotcha!', but the suggestion 'Reingelegt!' from the other thread seems reasonable, even if it was never supported; or yes, 'Verarscht!', etc.

    'Psyche' is a noun and is correctly pronounced as two syllables: /'sai ki:/.

    "Reingelegt!" ist halt der normalere brave Ausdruck im Deutschen ... - also nicht gerade Slang. Dann lieber "Ha, [voll] verarscht!"

    #4VerfasserBraunbärin (757733) 08 Jan. 22, 11:54

    'reingelegt' ist salopp, ebenso wie 'psych', ich sehe da keinen Riesenunterschied in der Sprachebene. 'verarscht' hingegen ist derb, dafür sehe ich eigentlich keinen Grund.

    Wenn man jemanden "reinlegt", könnte man denjenigen auch mit "Reingefallen!" foppen. Das zumindest würde ich sagen.
