Psychic Abilites - What are your favorites?

If you could have a psychic talent, what would you choose?  I'm not talking X-Men here, just your basic psychic abilities.  

Would you read minds? See dead people? Move objects just by thinking about it? 

Or ... ?

  1. I always thought remote viewing would be way cool -- especially since the U.S. military apparently got funding to research it at one time!

  2. I sort of read a novel where the main characters had that talent! (I say sort of because I didn't work for me and so I skimmed most of it)

    Do you think Remote Viewing is like the Magic Mirror on Romper Room? I see Suzie, and Joe, and Billy... Joe and Billy, stop that!

  3. *sigh* I suppose teleporting isn't a basic psychic ability?

    I think I already have a couple, and they're quite useful. Rockstar Parking - a favorite of friends, since we always get decent parking, even in crowded areas. Contest Winning Luck (self-explanatory). Must Go To That Used Bookstore NOW Because The Book I Want Is On The Shelf (self-explanatory).

  4. Oh, and also Finding, which isn't particularly useful for me, but is for other people that I'm around.

  5. I think teleporting would fall into the X-Men category. Sorry.

    I am so impressed with your current roster of abilities, though.

    I think I might have one. When someone asks me a question about something, I open my mouth to suggest an answer but before the words come out the other person has figured it out for themselves. Don't know what to call that.

  6. Personal Wisdom Facilitation?

  7. I don't think I'd want to read minds because I think that could lead to ugly stuff. I think things all the time that I would DIE if people knew. And I'm not talking kinky stuff. Just being in a bad mood and thinking something nasty about a total stranger on the bus, that would be very hurtful if they "heard" it, so I wouldn't want to hear that stuff.

    I think telekinesis, sitting on the couch and I could just have the remote fly to my hand, or get myself a drink of water. If I forget something upstairs I wouldn't have to run back up, just have it done, take my laundry out of the dryer and fold it without DOING it. You see, I'm inherently lazy and found a skill which could make me even lazier. Yay me. :-)

    Ha. Word veri: discustr - some people would be discustr with my level of laziness.

  8. Chris - I likes it!

    Tam - I'm so not discustred with that. It would be particularly helpful when I've been up and down the stairs twice and still forget to get what I went up there for in the first place!

  9. LOL, I agree with Tam.

    I don't want to read people's minds. Frankly just listening to what comes out of some peoples mouths is scary enough. I hate to think whats going on in the inside.

    But, oh yes, I'd love to make objects move on their own. Lovely to think I could float my Coke out of the fridge. :D

  10. Lily, you are so right. Maybe if you could move things, you could keep certain people's mouths closed!

    ReplyDelete
  11. LOL Lily!

    Yep, telekinesis. And once my ass got too big from sitting on it all the time, I could just levitate my whole self around!

  12. Oh KZ, thanks for the laugh first thing in the morning!

  13. Definitely moving objects. Any excuse to be lazy and all that.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wow. I had no idea that moving objects would be such a popular choice!

    Although I suppose that most psychic abilities would be considered a blessing and a curse, especially those that involved other people (reading minds, etc.), whereas mentally manipulating stuff is pretty much your choice and wouldn't necessarily affect others.

    Hmm...I wonder how it might work in the bedroom?

  15. Umm...psychic abilities. It would be great to have the 'pee for me' ability - you know, when you need to pee really bad but don't want to get off your ass to go to the bathroom or when you're out in the woods or some place with really nasty public bathrooms, then a friend can pee for you. But that might fall into x-men abilities, since it likely involves some sort of pee teleportation.

    Leviating the diet coke from the fridge and into my hand would be cool, too. And I'm really digging Chris' Rockstar Parking ability. Wish I had that.

  16. Oh, Ava, I almost peed my pants reading your psychic ability of choice!

    My husband and I will often be ensconced on our respective couches in the evening and when one gets up to go to the bathroom the other will inevitably say: Hey, will you pee for me too?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh, ditto, Wren!!! Not even a half hour ago, hubby got up to go to the kitchen, asked if I needed anything and my response 'will you pee for me?' LOL And since I don't have that psychic ability, I had to get off my ass and trudge to the bathroom.

  18. Don't you just hate it when that happens? Sheesh. :)
