Is it normal to think people can read your mind?

For some reason I am deathly afraid that people can read my mind. I feel like I have to monitor what I think about around certain people because I'm afraid they will be able to read my mind. I don't know why but it just scares my so much. Is it normal??

Is It Normal?

  • I feel the exact same thing! Sometimes it feels like my thoughts are sort of projected into whatever room i'm in and I get freaked out even though I know it can't really be happening.

  • Completely normal. Everyone at some point in their life wonders if others can read their mind. But of course no one can invasively read your thoughts. I went through this when I was younger. Especially when I was a child I thought the kids at school and the teachers could read my mind and it was a conspiracy against me. I grew out of it. I learned to imagine others should be afraid because I can read their mind and projected that thought at them when I suspected they were reading my mind. Sounds silly but it worked for me. An old song captures the feeling quite well and in a slightly humorous way, it's called "Somebody's Watching Me" by Rockwell. Has a Michael Jackson-esque sound.

  • Some people do have the ability to read minds, some can even manipulate them. In fact, I know 1 who already cought my thought, and expirienced the manipulation in a nasty way.

  • People can read your expression and body mannerisms really easily, but can't think your thoughts. But because people can tell things by looking at you, you should keep your thoughts clear

  • The fact that you are questioning it is a good thing .. if you 100% believed this, then you would not be questioning whether it was normal .. it's just paranoia, happens to more people than you'd think

  • It's not normal to believe that others can read your mind, but I do think it's normal that one might fear that one's facial expressions and body language might give away one's thoughts and feelings.

  • One in every 500 people can read my mind. When they become aware of my thoughts, they shiver and stop listening real fast.

  • Are you convinced about it, or is it more of an obsessive thought?

    • It like I'm afraid people can but I don't actually think people can.

      • Then it sounds like an paranoid obessive thought rather than a paranoid delusion - do you have other obessive thoughts or anxiety problems?
