Thought Control is one of the disciplines of psi, along with Metathermics, Psychokinesis and Temporal Manipulation E. Thought Control is considered by many to be difficult and nefarious - mind controllers are often untrusted. Offensive thought control abilities consist of manipulating the minds of living targets, such as overloading their brains, making them flee in fear or attack everything in blind rage. Besides pure crowd control, thought control abilities can also deal a good amount of damage, but only on living targets and sometimes even only on human targets.

There is only one Thought Control teacher in the game: Ezra, head network administrator at South Gate Station, can teach the player up to three thought control abilities. However, psionic mentors can be found throughout the game and teach many more abilities.
