Types of Telepathy

There are 3 types of telepathy: Instinctive, Intuitive & Mental.
» Instinctive Telepathy
Instinctive telepathy is a basic ability common to most species. It’s a merging of minds, rather than a transferance between minds.
At most, instinctive telepaths can broadcast simple images, emotions and sensations. Rather than surface thoughts or broadcasting, their specialty is the subconscious mind. Their weakness is close proximity, since many of them are better at great distances.
Many instinctive telepaths struggle with mental separation. In fact, some many view people as an extension of each other.
Here are a few examples of Instinctive Telepathy:
A young teenager has a reputation of being memorable and making good impressions. Whenever he enters a room, people tend to look at and/or notice him. When he’s happy, he can make everyone around him happy, but he tends to dull an entire room if he’s sad. In his presence, an individual can and does confess to things he/she would never willingly do for another.
Margaret was a successful, talented and genuinely caring therapist. She enjoyed her job very much, despite exhausting hours and a stressful environment. She was good at it and made a difference, which helped her cope with anything it threw at her.
Margaret had a curious ability to discern a person’s personality. She could pinpoint their problems and effectively find a solution for them. As a therapist, it was a very useful skill, and she never hesitated to use it. Being a woman of science, she would never openly admitted it.
Instinctive telepaths have excellent imaginations and interpersonal intelligence. These people may have a fascination for patterns, textures or visual stimulation.
» Intuitive Telepathy
The concept of intuitive telepathy is based on The Grid Theory.
The Grid is a collective consciousness comprised of humanity’s shared energy. It contains collective memories and emotions, according to the theory. There is a master Grid and minor Grids; minor Grids are tied to specific areas or objects of importance.
An intuitive telepath is able to exchange information with the Grid. Tapping into it subconsciously, information can appear as unexplainable knowledge. To a much lesser degree, it could also appear as irrational fears or rootless emotions and urges. Unlike other forms of telepathy, it’s not limited by distance or time.
Unlike other forms of telepathy, intuitive telepathy is not limited by living organisms. Their ability focuses more on residual mental connections, rather than currently active ones.
The following is an example of intuitive telepathy:
George and John were identical twins. As children, they’d shared everything with each other. As with many twins, George and John had a connection between them. For an example, the twins had an uncanny ability to “feel” each other, or find each other if necessary. If either twin was upset, the other knew it immediately—including what exactly was wrong.
In college, George decided to take an arts class. John had an excellent skill and eye for art, so why shouldn’t George? (They shared everything else!) Of course, life didn’t work that way.
George had a particularly difficult assignment. He’d been working for hours without any progress, or even a shred of luck. He passionately wished for John’s talent, then. After staring at his canvas for hours, though, he knew what to do.
The next day, John called up, “I had the weirdest dream. I was staring at a canvas. I was holding my favorite paint brush.”
George looked at his art supplies quizzically. Sure enough, he had John’s favorite paint brush!
Truthfully, intuitive telepathy is a bit controversial.
» Mental Telepathy
Made famous by Marvel and Hollywood, mental telepathy is a familiar talent. It’s a transfer, manipulation and perception of thought. Unlike other forms of telepathy, mental telepathy is limited by distance.
The following are a few examples of mental telepathy:
David has a reputation of having short, horrid relationships. He’s described as a “great guy,” but many people find David eerily astute. In fact, many people are uncomfortable with how astute David is. Many of his ex-girlfriends say, “It’s like he can see right through me.”
Sometimes, David responds to comments nobody makes or makes strange gestures. Sometimes, he complains of pressure headaches or whispers.
