Analysis

May be useful on masochists to give a permanent mood boost to them. Note that this also makes them less effective in battle since they collapse earlier from pain and that pain itself will inflict a -4% consciousness penalty as well.

On non-masochist pawns, just the pain from the mindscrew will inflict enough pain to give a -10 mood penalty.

On Wimps, it will causes immediate and permanent shock as the pain will instantly reach their pain shock threshold.

Can also be useful on psycasters since they recover from neural heat faster when in pain.

There is also potential synergy with the psychic harmonizer when used on prisoners.
