Added DiffLines:

*Seems to be the fate of every medium in the [[VideoGame/TheBlackwellSeries Blackwell Series]] as going around and helping wandering spirits move on to the afterlife ends up being a full-time job that requires them to effectively give up ever having their own lives. Every medium in the series appears to be bitter, resentful, or just plain empty other than the main character, Rosa.

* While passing through a busy courtyard, Dowager Queen Jehana in ''[[{{Deryni}} The King's Justice]]'' catches the thoughts of the assassins who are planning to attack her brother-in-law Nigel.

* The titular character of ''[[Manga/TheDisastrousLifeOfSaikiK]]'' has access to seemingly every psychic power in the book, but is unable to shut them off, which has resulted in them robbing his life of any surprise, challenge, or sense of accomplishment. This includes being able to hear the thoughts of everyone around him, but unlike some other examples, he has enough mental fortitude that it's simply an annoyance to him.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', most psykers end up being consumed by the Astronomican or the Golden Throne as a sacrifice. Of course, if you're not put in that, you may [[YourHeadASplode have your head explode]], of turn to chaos, or be possessed by a chaos daemon...

* ''AmericanDragonJakeLong'' features two sisters who can see the future. One sees only good things, but is constantly glum because she's no longer surprised or happy when the prediction actually happens. The other sees only bad things, but is [[StepfordSmiler constantly cheery]] because any moment she's not around misery seems good in comparison.
