If I was the only guy with powers on the planet, then yeah I'd show off. If I was in like Marvel Universe, no.

Depends on the powers. Mental abilities, like telekinesis, I'd hide AND show off. Seek out crimes and stop them without being noticed. Like against criminals with guns, use telekinesis to turn on the safety of the guns until cops show off. In the case of a fire, use telekinesis to support the building and keep fire off the people so they can escape. Car chase, popped tire. Theft, tripped perpetrator.

Subtle, looks like an accident, it could happen without me being there, so no one ever knows I was involved. It was just a happy accident.

With physical abilities, like strength, speed, or such, I'd probably hide it.

I'm on the depends on the powers side. The physical abilities I wouldn't mind showing off. Sending mental projections, or having a death touch etc you may want to hide.

It really depends on the magnitude and how I got them (or who I was - extraterrestial and such)

If I'm Mr. Majestic level or similar, heck yeah I'd show them off. I'd be epic in contributing to the world of science. That, if the governments feel threatened, I'll make them back off.

If I was around Spidey's level, I'd live wealthily as a premier fighter in the world or premier athlete with "once in a century" talent.

And of course, mental powers are another thing entirely.

Basically, here's how it goes: if I can defend myself on a planetary scale with relative ease, I'd show them off. If a military can defeat me (even if it takes the entire military) I'd err on the side of caution.

If I'm powerful there would no longer be a need to vote anymore because I would be your leader.

Depends on the power. If its anything that can't prevent dissection from government scientists then I'd hide it. If its like Superman level power that makes me pretty much indestructable the I flaunt it.

Probably show them off to my family at first while hiding them from the rest of the world, but I'm sure that'd eventually give way and I'd use them is some big fashion.
