If I could read minds for a day, I would take advantage and try to read as many minds as possible. There are interesting people that I see every day and I’ve always wondered what they were thinking about because of the inquisitive looks on their faces. I’ve also wondered about people who always appear to be lost in their own thoughts since I’m always lost in my own thoughts. I wonder if their thoughts are focused on one particular idea or if they are like me and have a lot of ideas and dialogue floating through their brain at once. Being able to read others minds would be a powerful experience. I believe it would reveal shocking and stirring truths.
On the other hand, I would never want anyone to have the ability to read my mind. I wouldn’t want anyone to know what I was thinking because I’m an extremely private person. I would feel violated to know that someone had the ability to enter my head and was privy to my rich innie life. I realize that it’s hypocritical of me to admit that I would want to have that ability for at least a day and yet not want anyone else to read my thoughts. I’m sure someone else would feel just as violated as I would knowing that someone could read their mind.
