A magnet is a material or object that produces a magnetic field which produces a force that pulls on other ferromagnetic materials, such as iron, causing it to stick to the magnet. A human magnet is a living being who can stick metal objects to themselves like you would a novelty magnet to a fridge.
The vast majority (99+%) of cases can be put down to the person having very stick skin for some reason. There remains a few cases that simply defy explanation. This theory is supported by “evidence” of the human magnet sticking other objects to themselves that are not made from ferromagnetic materials, such as glass or plastics.
Many people belive those who claim to be human magnets are simply novelty acts at best, with the extremely negative views calling them out as frauds and to be mentally examined for insanity.
