  • Yes then it would save having the challenge of trying to read peoples body language , and their actions. It'd be much easier reading their mind. It would prevent assumptions and overthinking too 😆

  • One of the easiest poll. Vote A

    Reading others' mind, I could control the consequences. I'd turn any situation into my favour. He who controls the mind, controls the power. Whether it's gambling, asking out crushes, competitions like chess or even presidential elections. You can win anything by that. It could also save my life from potential threats from strangers.

  • I must admit, yes I would, however I would want to control how and when this happens rather than just having an open broadcast to peoples thoughts, and if and when I did this activity, I wouldn't want it to be invasive or painful to either myself or the target, I would want it to be not unlike a daydream entering their consciousness and then drifting away like a wisp of smoke. No trauma. :-)

      THIS!
      I have no idea what my crush wants with me and apparently I'm not getting any straight answers from him, so it would be fantastic to be able to stop guessing.

  • Sure. If I have the ability then I will use it.
    If you have a resource, use it to your advantage.

  • Whatever weighing up people are doing, it's totally worth ruining your life to have special abilities nobody else could obtain. Even if they capture you and torture you to death with scientific equipment, it'd be totally amazing just to be a part of that

      That bull looked at me and said "Moo", Does he like me?

    • 3mo

      Lol I like how you assume thoughts appear through a linguistic medium in cows.

    • 3mo

      haha I am honestly curious about their thinking patterns, I blame it to you, I'd never think about their thoughts, if not that answer :D
      Suddenly I saw cows from another angle

  • Oh definitely, so much I'd be able to do then

  • I voted No, and here's why;

    I used to be part of a website (almost similar to this) called the ExperienceProject. For a few years, it was through that site that I got the ugly truth as to what human beings are really like and it was terrible. I mean, the internet is almost like that, where we can understand people's thoughts becuase it's anonymous. Honestly, from the things I've seen here even though I've been part of GAG for just a few weeks, I'm horrified. So, count me out in terms of reading people's minds.

      I've never been on that website, but they are just like you and me, no one is better, no one is worse. You'd have funny time.

      It seems you are very sensitive, life must have been hard for you.
      There are good people and there are people who just do a little more bad things than others.
      There's no sin you or me wouldn't do in their shoes.
      If you could read their mind you would most likely feel sympathy to them and understand what were reasons behind their actions.

    • 3mo

      Just becuase I prefer not to read people's minds or don't agree with the things people think or do, does not make me sensitive. If there are things I prefer not to know, then I would think that's a reasonable option.

      There's no sin that you and I wouldn't do in their shoes? I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have an affair and then seek support about to my buddies. I would wish all men or women dead, or have rape fantasies in putting a woman through terror, telling people who don't/refuse to have kids that they are not worthy of love. I can go on.

      This is not about me trying to be better or be holy than thou. This is me discovering pretty much for the first time, how human beings really live.

  • Only if I can turn it on and off. I wouldn't use it too often but if I am around a guy I like then that would come in handy.
