You need to read Dune. Perfect prescience is a deadly trap to fall into. Seeing mostly all the possible futures is like standing in he eye of a storm. One wrong action... The Doctor like the Master and probably most Time Lords clearly have some hypnotic power. "Don't you think she look tired?" Feel a lot like an hypnotic suggestion to me.
