I Wish I Could Read Minds

    It Would Be A Double Edged Sword

    On one hand, I am curious to know what people really think about me, but on the other hand I am not sure I could take it. It seems like a common wish. In the case of the opposite sex particularly I am overcome with curiosity. There are so many pretty women that I just want to...

    Reading minds would be a fantastic ability to

    have. Especially if it was not something you were born being able to do. It would definitely be an acquired taste, but once it settled in I think it would be a feeling of sheer brilliance. You would see yourself as your peers see you, as your friends see you, as your partner...

    The Cost: Mutism

    I've long longed for the ability, not so much to read minds as to read emotions. I have trouble expressing myself verbally, but when it comes to written expression, I find I have no difficulty. And every ability has its cost. What if the cost was something I would willingly...

    Me Too,

    although I'm sure I wouldn't like everything I heard. It would really give one an advantage in negotiations though. I would like to be a mind-voyeur. That would be very interesting.

    How Weird Would That Be?

    I think it would be pretty useful, like if you wanted to know if someone liked you - or find the whereabouts of some buried treasure... But it'd be bad too like, if you knew someone was thinking "Oh my god she's so ugly," or "I'm going to make an excuse to leave...

    Sometimes I Wonder What It Would Be Like To Read Minds.

    I think it would be very interesting to be able to read people's minds at will. Sometimes you just know what a person is thinking, you see it in their face or body language. My mind is always working, I am always thinking, the main reason I want to be able to do this is...

    I Wish...

    If I could read minds I think I'd either be the happiest man on the planet or the saddest... I tend to think about things alot, and I could cut back on all of it if I could read their mind. No second guessing myself, no need to take risks.

    I wish I could read minds so I could avoid hurting people's feelings. It's so hard when people don't say, what's on their mind and expect me to always read the signs. But guess what? I usually misinterpret the signs and I'm totally blind to some signs. It's so refreshing when...

    How To Be Happy

    I'd like to be able to just read someone's inner thoughts to see how they have, find or stay happy and they could (and I believe do) read my mind so I could tell them about the book HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE by Barry Neil Kaufman. Also I'd be fun to predict their next move.

    Actually I Have Read Minds, and You Can Too

    All it takes to read someone's mind is catching them with their shields down.  This separation of our bodies and minds by space is an illusion--we're really all part of one big buzzing energy field, and information can be exchanged instantaneously between anyone and anything...

    Stop Thinking That

    Wouldn't be great to read minds and to interject an addition to the thought processes of a person in mid-thought. Like brain storming without the haggling verbally. You could stop your own kids and tell them to stop thinking that way or you're punished. Say to them I know what...
