If you were given the ability to read people's minds, would you?
Hello poker table!
Yes, I would.
I'm sure I would. I can hear, so I listen. I can see, so I look. I'm sure if I could read minds I would, as naturally as I use any of my other senses.
Would I be able to turn it off? Would I be able to focus on one or two targets? If not, then no.
No, It's tough enough dealing with my own thoughts much less a room full of others . . .
And slowly lose my own...
If I can turn it on & off at will, yes.
