Extrasensory perception (ESP) involves the relay of information not gained through the physical senses but instead sensed with the mind. ESP is also sometimes casually referred to as a sixth sense, gut instinct or hunch but is also sometimes referred to most commonly as intuition. The term implies acquisition of information by means external.

ESP contains several abilities. For example Empathy, Telepathy, clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, precognition, postcognition etc. The main difference between them is the way of gaining data. For example, an Empathy ability might read the background feelings of a person, and determine the emotions of nearby people; compared to telepathy which covers thoughts and the mind functions. Other types might get the information straight out of the subject's mind. One of the rarest cases presume ESP abilities as the knowledge given by a certain entity.

Abilities such as clairvoyance use senses in a entirely different way. This is in aspects a extension of them to work in a way more potent way then usual. 

ESP can also be known to cover nearly a wide variety of abilites
