If you were given the ability to read minds, would you like it or not? Personally it'd be amazing but at the same time when you realize the true intentions and motives behind what people appear to be it'd be depressing, no?

It's like finding out you're surrounded in a place you don't belong or want to be. In a sense it'd be an amazing ability but it'd also act as a double edged sword because you then realize you're really alone. Unless they're true to their heart then all is well.

If you want an example of what I meant, here's an anime that best explains it.

Anime: Kotoura-san

I think I would like it because I'm clueless. I don't really talk to people because I don't understand them, but with my mind reading ability, I would know everything they're thinking.

Doesn't this also happen in Code Geass among others? Mao sure didn't like being flooded with thoughts 24/7. People who know you can read their minds could troll you by thinking naughty images of you though lol.

Yes and no. You could say what they were thinking and mind fuck them and that would be somewhat funny. But it would be depressing hearing all these negative thoughts.

If people found out you can read their thoughts, nobody would wanna be around you lol.

I wouldn't like it. But it would be helpful...
To creep people out by showing bits and pieces that you know of their mind...
And then to- I'll stop there. Going to sound like such a sociopath.

I'd get a job with the FBI or the CIA... Yeah. I would try - REAL HARD - not to use it when I'm not at work.

I'd learn to play cards and go gambling.

It would be a convenient ability since you know exactly how to interact with any person at any given time. Nobody can kill you since you'll sense their intent and make your escape. You'd be aware of the people around you. You can talk to people who need to be talked to. I imagine working as a psychiatrist would be really easy and you'd be so good at it, you'd have a reputation in no time and you'd be set for life.

You can also easily make friends because you'll know exactly who you'll get along with. And you'll be able to pick out all the people you need to cut out of your life. The only downside is that people might start getting boring but I'd rather deal with that. Or you might be able to befriend anyone, since you'll know exactly what to say to them and how to say it.

You didn't specify enough. I'd definitely like to have that power if it was selective, but if it was always on, definitely not, most humans wouldn't survive that with their sanity.

I would absolutely hate to have that power, I can already read my own mind and sometimes that's too much for me, knowing what was going on in the mind of everyone I meet would be horrible, but, if the power was a thing I could just control when I wanted and not lose control of it and have on all the time (like Mao from Code Geass) I would consider it.

This is like Mel Gibson's movie what a girl wants. That's a gift, dude.

I look like a teen but we can still have adult conversations.

Nope. Not interested. It'll be too much trouble, in my opinion. Besides, I don't really care about what other people are thinking. And if I did care, I have no problem simply asking.
