People have a mixture of perceptions regarding psychic people and the psychic abilities. The variations in perception regarding psychics and their abilities are based on the cultural differences. Religion is also a significant factor in shaping people’s perception regarding psychic abilities. Moreover, a person’s own experience regarding psychic people and their powers will determine his approach towards psychics and their powers.
Apart from other people, there is a mixed attitude among the psychics regarding their powers. Psychic powers are so abrupt and spontaneous that sometimes the psychic people themselves are unable to recognize their powers and their whole life is spent without even noticing their psychic powers.
Another group of psychics do realize that they are psychics. They are also able to recognize their psychic abilities. But, they take them fore granted and do nothing about them. Here, the attitude towards psychic abilities is again a mixture of positive and negative perspectives. One group of psychics considers it to be a curse which is punishment for their sins. The other group considers these powers to be a gift and there is nothing one can do to enhance or reduce these powers.
A third group of psychics know the importance of their powers and put their efforts in order to increase and/or control them.
