* Creator/AndreNorton's ''Moonsinger'' series used this: in the first book, narrator Krip wonders suspiciously if the fellow he's talking to is esper -- but [[HypocriticalHumor doesn't seem to think it's at all odd]] to probe with his ''own'' esper powers. In the second book, someone takes a reading and comments that Krip's psychic ability level is seven; the people who knew him are startled, because he was "only" a level five a fairly short time ago. The phrasing, by the way, makes clear that five is considered pretty high.
