While some fans can make arguments over what the symbolism means, and what everything represents, many mind screws will pad themselves with [[TheWalrusWasPaul meaningless sequences]] to make the audience work even harder. Arguments over which sequences are significant are common. [[TrollingCreator Don't expect the writer to be very helpful.]] And if the show has [[AllThereInTheManual supplemental materials]], don't expect them to be much help either. (If, by some miracle, they ''are'' helpful, you've got yourself a MindScrewdriver.) The more decipherable symbolism tends to focus on the perceptions people have of one another and [[ComingOfAge puberty]] and [[FreudWasRight sex]]. Japanese and South Korean often produce this sort of thing and particularly in the horror and psychological drama genres because Asian audiences thrive on this type of oblique, enigmatic ambiguity. Creator/DavidLynch [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff is hugely popular in Japan for this reason]].

Not to be confused with MindRape, no matter how the audience feels, nor with the MindGameShip, nor MentalAffair, which is a ''literal'' mind screw.
