lollll I'm generally against reading people's thoughts but that's got to be the best justification I've heard for it yet.

Allow me to go into large detail on the consequences of owning that ability, & to make a sound choice that would be most efficient

I'd work for justice system, fastest guilty /not guilty verdicts in the history of courts.

If I could read minds, then I'd know superpowers were real, so I'd search for other people with powers. Then I'd found the Injustice League (or whatever other supervillain team) and take over the world.

"the mind-reader guy said he (did it/didn't do it)" doesn't prove anything either way and would be useless in court. Even if you're trustworthy, just taking your word for it doesn't put things "beyond a reasonable doubt".

I have no idea, you kind of can though, through a persons actions and facial expressions.

"Come now, Fred. We know you helped Steve and Anthony bury the bodies next to the lake. This was never any of your business. You got dragged into it because you kept bad company. You thought they were your friends but I'll bet they threatened you to stay quiet, didn't they? Come clean; if you will testify and take us to where you disposed of the evidence you can get a fair deal. You never had any trouble with the law before and the court will be lenient. You can carry on with your life instead of rotting away in prison. I know you're not the one who did it; why should you take a fall for anyone else?"

"I don't remember my password..." which is "swordfish".

These schmucks will never figure out that I sent Edward to get a parking ticket in my car. They will now focus all their attention on the grieving widow, as intended.

Vince cracks easily. We should get rid of him before he talks.

These examples are better suited to the police than the courts but they still stand. Now imagine a clever prosecutor with similar abilities.

Use it in everyday life as a guide of course.

The potential uses and abuses are limitless.

Casinos: Think about what you'd do at the blackjack table, knowing what the dealer has everytime, or in the poker room, knowing what all the other players' cards are?

Financial investing: You'd be the ultimate insider trader, hanging close to a company's head honchos so that you'd know when to buy and when to sell. The downside there is that if you get too greedy, sooner or later the SEC will investigate. They won't find anything, but you'll have a hassle.

Law enforcement has been mentioned. You could go into a prison and determine if anyone was innocent...and find out all the other crimes the prisoners hadn't yet been accused of.

You'd know immediately if anyone was a spy or selling information for the government, or if anyone was a foreign agent or terrorist. You'd be able to wipe out all the world's terror cells.

You'd be able to find out exactly who leaked what to who, when and why.

Find out every drug dealer, and find their hidden assets and bank accounts.

Know exactly the locations of rogue nations' WMDs, nukes and chemicals, and state of development thereof.

Know exactly what a woman is thinking. Imagine that resource for seduction, to know exactly what she wants, her innermost fantasies and desires...and also know what she looks like naked from her POV, including mirrors.

And you'd know everything, exactly and without their forgetting, what your kids what for Christmas and birthdays.

I would rather not know what people really think of me. Some things are better left in the dark than brought to the surface.

Use it to get money. Probably not use it for anything else, as reading minds still seems iffy to me, but I'm in no position to not make money lol
