Psychic being not very effective against Steel makes no sense

Shouldn't Psychic be super effective against Steel?

Way back in the first season of the anime, the power of Psychics were introduced by having people bend metal spoons with their minds.

It was to balance Psychics. They were overpowered in the first generation. No logic here, it was done simply for balance. Don't go hurting your brain.

Spoons are only a product of our perception of reality.
Therefore, they are within our minds.
No matter how hard we try, we can't cause spoons to disappear. This shows the power they have over us.

Therefore Steel>Psychic

Spoons are not sentient. Steel-type Pokémon are.

For some reason, metal alloys suppress mental attacks, probably due to interference, in addition, we have the tin foil hats to prevent mind reading.

Those are some reasons I can think of.

That's no spoon...

It's a space station.

Thinking about why steel resists psychic hurts your brain.

Steel > Psychic right there.

I don't about you, but I certainly can not move steel things at all with psychic powers. There you have it.
