    Psionics contains numerous abilities and there is a misconception that anyone can jump into any ability at any time. Also many people put abilities as their goals without knowing what it takes to get to that ability.

    To help Psions understand the levels of progression I have made this Psionic Ability Tier System. It starts from tier 1 to tier 5; or T1 to T5. Tier one abilities are base abilities that anyone can jump
    Into at any time. Tier 5 abilities require you to fully understand four abilities to get and fully use a T5.

    There are also Latent Abilities as well that are normally only accessible by people born with them. Most latent abilities can not be learned or taught. It's really you have it or you don't.

    Latent (L)
    • Precognition
    • Clairvoyant Types
    • Latent Empathy
    • Latent Telepathy
    • Intuitive Aptitude
    • Photo or Umbra Affinity
    Tier One (T1)
    • Basic Energy Manipulation
    • Basic Energy Constructs
    • Projected Energy Manipulation
    • Imbuing
    • Flaring
    • Auric Sight
    • Beginner Empathy
    • Proprioception
    Tier Two (T2)
    • Basic Energy Connections
    • Intermediate Empathy
    • Energy Shielding/ Armor
    • Basic Focal Points
    • Energy System Scanning
    • Classic Elemental Kinetics [Psychokinesis] (Pyro, Aero, Geo, Hydro)
    • Auric Sight
    • Astral Projection
    • BioLocation
    Tier Three (T3)
    • Intermediate Energy Connections
    • Offensive Emissions
    • Defensive Emissions
    • Telepathy
    • Astral Sight
    • Etheric Projection
    • Advanced Projected Constructs
    • Psionic Thermodynamics
    • Cryokinesis
    • Electrokinesis
    Tier Four (T4)
    • Tendriling
    • Advanced BioLocation
    • Biokinesis
    • BiLocation
    • Empathic Manipulation
    • Memory Manipulation
    • Mind Hacking
    • Soul Diving
    • Sensory Dampening
    Tier Five (T5)
    • Gravitational Understanding
    • Telekinesis
    • Traditional Umbrakinesis
    • Dark Energy Manipulation
    • Photokinesis
    • Light Energy Manipulation
    • Advanced Focal Points
    • Teleportation
    • Life Path Knowledge
    • Manifestation
    • Silver Tongue
    • Purifier / Corrupter Understanding

    I will be adding more to this list.

    ChronoKinesis would be changing your perception, mostly through adrenaline or faster reactions. It's a theorized ability that most can't do or record. Lunarkinesis is really a stranger form of Hydrokinesis because the moon controls the oceans tides and stuff.

    For you to jump tiers you have to be able to do the prerequisite in the other tier to some extent.

    I'm not sure if this would count as a latent ability but certain naturally talented pyrokinetics and cryokinetics will have varying resistances to their respective temperature affinity.

    Pyro would be considered a Classical Kinetic type. That includes Water, Fire, Air, Earth. As for Chronokinesis I do not know where to put that yet. Plus I do not know the mechanics of Chrono.

    Proprioception- the ability to sense position, location, orientation, and movement of the body and its parts.

    Hope that helps.
