For the Star Wars Jedi Survivor mind trick to trust or reward Senator Sejan, your choice feels important, considering some crucial information is on the line. Cal and his crew need the code for a terminal to unlock it and get the crucial information on the Empire the senator has. However, your choice here actually matters a lot less than it seems, with neither option having any real consequences. Here's what's going on and what option to chose when this Jedi Survivor mind trick presents itself.

Star Wars Jedi Survivor trust or reward mind trick and what to pick

The short answer is that your choice doesn't matter - whatever you pick for the Star Wars Jedi Survivor trust or reward mind trick, Senator Sejan will unlock the terminal for you either way. That means there's no chance of failure here and it's more about the illusion of control in Star Wars Jedi Survivor. Whether you convince him to trust you, or offer a reward, he gives you the terminal code and you get what you want to continue the story. It also has no long term effect as there's no morality system or something similar in Jedi Survivor.

This is pretty much the case with all the Star Wars Jedi mind tricks you'll encounter in the game - you'll get two choices but both are correct and there's no way to fail - I've never failed one and neither has anyone else on the GamesRadar+ team. It's just a bit of color that doesn't actually affect anything. So, generally, pick whichever you feel is most fitting for your version of Cal Kestis.
