Users of this ability are more intelligent than most of their species, or at least able to use their brain more efficiently and effectively either by being naturally gifted or training themselves for the needed shortcuts. Some are able to perform feats of mind comparable to computers.

Some are capable of learning a variety of essential skills in a day, which would take a normal person years to achieve mastery over. Some new age proponents propagate this belief by asserting that the unused ninety percent of the brain is capable of exhibiting psychic powers, such as telekinesis, telepathy, empathy, etc.
