Inferior shields will allow the attacker to know you're hiding something. A better shield will leave an attacker uncertain, because the attacker won't ''know'' whether or not you're actually trying to hide abything. A ''really good'' shield may let the invader think he got access to what he was searching, and feed them false information. This is also the best defense to employ against something or someone trying to find you with PsychicRadar.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' and other Palladium Books games have a psychic ability called Mind Block, which simply prevents psychic attacks altogether while it is active. A more powerful version, Mind Block Auto-Defense, acts as an automatic defense that triggers anytime the user is under psychic attack, at the cost of a permanent reduction of the user's psychic energy capacity.

* In ''Literature/{{Below}}'', part of Brenish's skill as a ConsummateLiar comes from imagining multiple "selves" for which his lie of the moment is true, and using them to slip in and out of character on a dime. Once he realizes his mind is being probed, he not only turns the tables and can read his opponent's thoughts, but he puts his internal multitudes to work creating confusion.

* In ''The Damned'' trilogy by Creator/AlanDeanFoster not only humans are immune to psychic powers of Amplitur, but applying telepathy to humans turns out to be very painful and near-fatal. [[spoiler:Later we find that Lepar are immune too, but they don't hurt Amplitur.]]

** The "White Mask" tattoo of the Tattooed Monk PrestigeClass gives a similar protection as above, as well as a substantial bonus to bluff checks since their emotions can't be read.

* In the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse, Mara Jade has this power. Apparently the Emperor taught this to her as he wanted agents that his {{Dragon}} Darth Vader can't read, [[GenreSavvy due to not trusting him fully]]. Of course that still didn't save him in the end.

* The Mind Shield, Psi-Screen and Kai-Screen disciplines in ''Literature/LoneWolf''. They are mostly geared toward protecting from psychic combat or mental damage (which, to be fair, are a favorite of many creatures of Magnamund). Mind control is harder to defend against, and some especially powerful telepaths may manage to slip in and read Lone Wolf's thoughts while he's busy shielding his psyche from trauma.

** Psychic attacks are in fact frequent enough in this setting that some non-Kai humans otherwise devoid of psychic powers learn to resist the basic Mindblast through willpower, like the knight order of the White Mountain. [[TheBerserker Berserk rage]] also provides a modicum of protection.
