I'd rather be able to read people's minds - with the caveat that I could turn it on/off as I desired. If I could fly people would just start asking me to go get them things - you can fly - would you please go pick up xy or z...or worse yet - they'd start asking if I could take them for a ride - that would get old - but knowing whether or not my teenage daughter is planning on sneaking out - or what my boss is really thinking when I ask for a raise - that's priceless!
Most people are already very intuitive and with a little time and effort they probably would be surprised at how much they can read a person.
As for flying??? I could accomplish my dreams of taking my family to see all of the endangered species and cultures before they become extinct without having to endure the horrors of airplanes and that would be a marvelous thing.
That's a tough one...While reading people's minds sounds useful, I don't think I'd always want to know what they're thinking. Flying, on the other hand...if you could fly you could travel virtually anywhere, whenever you wanted. How fun would that be! I would pick flying.
I'd love to fly. I've always loved to watch Eagles soaring on the thermals. How free would you feel? I can't think of anything creepier (well, not entirely true) than reading others minds. Noooo thanks! Although, it happens quite a bit, anyway. Ich.
I tend to have a good BS detector, but maybe that's a body language/facial expression thing and not quite the same as reading minds.
I would say fly. But hate heights! lol Reading minds would be great. I would love to be able to put peoples minds at ease when weary or leary! lol I never have worried about what people think of me I am who I am. Sooooo.... I think reading minds. But I agree with another gal. Would like to be able to turn it off at will!! lol
Being female and women do have a higher emotional drive than the opposite sex. If I only took things at face value and considered the source. There would be much learned in a short time frame. So, I choose to read peoples minds to gain as much knowledge as possible.
Fly-well you know what happened to him on that black and white film. Help me, help me....
