* In "Unpaid Intern", part of the ''Fanfic/SorrowfulAndImmaculateHearts'' series, J'onn J'onzz refuses to read Batman's mind to satisfy the Flash's curiosity, partly because it would be unethical and partly because "exploring Batman's mind is extremely unpleasant. I would prefer to be able to enjoy the rest of my day."

* A variation in {{Film/Star Trek}} when Kirk mind melds with [[spoiler:the Spock from the original timeline. Spock blames himself for the destruction of Vulcan]], and thus is feeling huge amounts of grief, guilt, and overall pain. Since Vulcan emotions are stronger than humans and emotional transference is an effect of the mind meld, Kirk is overwhelmed and left stumbling around in a daze for a few seconds.

** Elva, however, was cursed with the ability to sense the pain of everyone around her. Her 'range' so to speak, is several dozen miles, and the effects of it nearly drive her insane. And she's been enduring this since birth.

** Oz has some interesting thoughts on this matter.
--> '''Oz's internal monologue''': I am my thoughts. If they exist in her, Buffy contains everything that is me, and she becomes me. I cease to exist.
--> '''Oz''': [[TheQuietOne Huh.]]
** We also learn that Cordelia pretty much always says exactly what she's thinking. Which makes a lot of sense; this is the same girl who said "Tact is just not saying true stuff."
-->'''Cordelia's internal monologue:''' Whatever. I'm bored.
-->'''Cordelia:''' Whatever. I'm bored.

* In the {{Daria}}[=/=]Comicbook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}} crossover ''Legion of Lawndale Heroes'', Cadet David Allen Farrington - one of the uber-powerful 'Class Five' psionics at the [[AcademyOfAdventure U.S. Academy of Extranormal Studies]] - is seen by most of the people around him, as well as the Legionnaires, as a JerkWithAHeartOfJerk. This comes into focus when you realize that his primary power is not ''telepathy'', ''[[TheEmpath but empathy]]''... and that not only [[HearingVoices can he feel the emotions of everyone around him]], but (except for when he [[BroughtDownToNormal takes a power-suppressing drug]]) [[BlessedWithSuck has been able to do just that since he was a week old.]]

* ''ShamanKing'': This is part of the reason main antagonist Hao went batshit insane and became a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds. An accident left him with a very dangerous ability, Reishi ("Reading the Heart"), that he could not control. The negative emotions and thoughts of others constantly overwhelming him and, since he was unable to turn his Reishi off, the deluge of negativity eventually drove him to become the Shaman King so that he create a Shaman only kingdom on earth.

** Comicbook/{{Gambit}} once memorably ensured that his thoughts were free of telepathic eavesdroppers by imagining the Blob naked.

{{Alice|AndBob}}'s life is going swell until she gains the ability to [[{{Telepathy}} read minds]]. She becomes very distraught when she discovers that the vast majority of the people around her have rather disturbing thoughts, thoughts better left unread. Random people think disgusting things all day long. Her friends are only using her. Her lover has been cheating since day one. Every random guy she meets wonders what she looks like naked. Most likely, all of the above and more.
