I would probably only tell my husband (we don't have any children). It depends on what type of ability and whether or not it would be coveted by others. With any "superhuman" type of ability, there will always be those out there who want to use the ability for their own gain/benefit. This could easily put someone with a rare talent in harm's way. I have noticed that people are not good at keeping secrets, even if it is their intention. I would keep it to myself for the most part to protect myself and my family and friends. We saw what happened to Alex's date as a result of his actions.

I would keep quiet to avoid all the negatives that come with having a superpower. And in order to spare my family the mixed emotions that come with it.

I would most definitely have to tell someone, but therein lies the question, who would believe you. You would have to be very careful and I do not think your first-love would be a good person to confide in.

I would confide in a few people perhaps, but I would not go around telling everyone! That would be dangerous and annoying having too many people knowing and expecting you to do things.
