Just a quick note.  I found this clip of the upcoming Dr Strange movie and it does a fair job of representing some of the anger and hostility I have felt from players in the presence of psionics.


He is quite hostile about it.  Like players who are certain they have a rational grasp of all the rules.  Discovering psionics as a hidden attribute can be quite disturbing.

The instant she teaches him astral projection though, the baffling anger evaporates and he embraces the extra dimension of his self.  Very meta.

Using psionics as the hidden attribute has worked for me.
