* Played with somewhat in ''Film/X2XMenUnited'', when Jean Grey starts to lose control of her psychic abilities. Apparently she can usually tune out the garbage and focus on the particular thoughts she's looking for, but when her [[PowerIncontinence powers start to malfunction]], she hears ''every thought of every person'' in the very crowded museum she's in. This gives her a headache, which causes her to involuntarily short out all the TV screens around her.

** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': A justified case near the climax. Among the cacophony of thoughts at the White House, Xavier can distinctly hear Mystique's inner voice speaking, "This is for you, brothers and sisters." When you are Professor Charles Xavier, it's not convenience; it's skill.

* Averted on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': The first thing the temporarily-psychic Buffy reads from a boy in her school is "Man, one day these pants are gonna fall right off my ass."

* Averted on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': The On ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', the first thing the temporarily-psychic Buffy reads from a boy in her school is "Man, one day these pants are gonna fall right off my ass."" Coherent, but not particularly relevant or meaningful. As the telepathy gets worse, she starts "hearing" everyone around her at once.

* Machinima/FreemansMind and a bunch of its spinoffs have characters who thoughts are consistently coherent. Most people think with pictures or develop feeling and occasionally think with actual words when they are in deep thought, but the main character ALWAYS thinks in full sentences that are easily understandable.

* In the ''Literature/{{Relativity}}'' story "August Moon", Ravenswood is confronting the villain the story is named after and points his gun at him. Moon can read his thoughts clearly enough to predict when he'll pull the trigger, and dodges at just the right moment.

People do not always think in complete sentences, and often idly muse on trivial things for a few seconds before passing to the next thought. However, when [[{{Telepath}} telepaths]] read minds, they don't have to sift through all of that 'mental' garbage. The thoughts that they read are usually incredibly coherent ([[ExactEavesDropping and relevant to the plot]]).

* ''ComicBook/{{Empowered}} interestingly subverted this for Mindf██k when she ''projected'' her thoughts - her subconscious associations etc. had a tendency to "bleed through", as in this telepathic conversation with Sistah Spooky:

* Subverted a few times in the ''ComicBook/XMen'' when a telepath catches random thoughts from a larger group of persons and often can't even pinpoint from whom they originate. Take two panels from ''X-Men Legacy'' #234 where Rogue absorbed telepathic powers from the Stepford Cuckoos and received the following potpourri while walking among other mutants on Utopia (infuriatingly, [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse neither Rogue nor the readers ever found out]] [[AllLoveIsUnrequited who was behind the last line]]).
