Being able to fly or move stuff with your mind might attract too much attention. If I could fly, I'd probably be bugged endlessly by people who wanted to figure out how this is possible... Most likely powerful people. Maybe I'm perceived as a threat and they want to detain me, basically forcing me into self-imposed exile? What if I'm kidnapped by people who want to figure out how to harness or duplicate my power? With the power of telekinesis, I'd probably be labeled the most dangerous man on the planet pretty quickly and, if not killed, probably shunned, opposed or feared.
Mind reading is way more useful and easy to keep secret.
