Made a lvl 1 tiefling psion and wondered how many feats,skills and abilities i get i used the books and the psion handbook on the site but couldnt locate how many i got lol. So question is how many do i get lol. Also really fast when you see something like this. 

 TRAINED SKILLSBluff +10, Diplomacy +8, Insight +7, Perception +5 

UNTRAINED SKILLSAcrobatics +0, Arcana +5, Athletics –1, Dungeoneering +0, Endurance +0, Heal +0, History +5, Intimidate +3, Nature +0, Religion +5, Stealth +2, Streetwise +3, Thievery +0 

Whats the + and -'s that follow the skills do you get a set amount of points? sorry bout the scrub questions just new and dont follow the handbooks to well lol  
Think I figured it out but any heads up on this topic incase lol. 
Psions get 4 skills trained from the following list:

Trained Skills: From the class skills list below, choose 4 trained skills at 1st level.
Class Skills: Arcana (Int), Bluff (Cha), Diplomacy (Cha), Dungeoneering (Wis), History (Int), Insight (Wis), Intimidate (Cha), Perception (Wis).

The division in your top post is between skills in which you are trained (these are usually your best skills) and untrained skills (which are usually worse)

The numbers after the skill are the total modifiers; they're not invested points, just everything that applies to each skill (your level, your abilities, racial bonusses, background, items, training, etc) added up as an easy reference. This is the number you add or substract when you roll a skill check. 

Since there are no points to invest, you just pick 4 skills and you get a +5 bonus to each of those skills for being trained, and no such bonus to all the others.

Ty again lastly sorry to ask whats it mean when a skill is augment option like for instance Dishearten it has a aug option 1 and 2?  how do i do that lol 
You spend powerpoints to augment the power before you use it on your turn. The number of points you have depends on your level, it's listed in the section in Psionic Augmentation, as is the ability to use those points.

You shouldn't assume, you should read that section. I'm pretty sure it's more then 0.

In fact, you get two power points at level 1.

I'd really recommend getting your hands on a copy of PHB3.

Remember a week ago when you said you were going to buy a book "tomorrow" ? How's that working out?

Well, he's a DDI subscriber. He could just look up Psion in the Compendium.

I think it would be a good start if he (she?) took out "LOL" at the end of every sentence. 

Unless thats part of the punctuation? Who knew?
