The description for kinetisists wild talents says
Wild talents are typically spell-like abilities (though some are supernatural abilities), and take a standard action to use unless otherwise noted.
But many other classes get spell like and supernatural abilities as well as the ability to mimic spells rouges get the minor and major magic talents, many ninja tricks are supernatural abilities, and qigong monks can mimic spells as ki powers so there’s obviously ways to do magic stuff without being without being a mage.
As a ninja continues her training, she learns a number of tricks that allow her to confuse her foes and grant her supernatural abilities. Starting at 2nd level, a ninja gains one ninja trick. She gains one additional ninja trick for every 2 levels attained after 2nd. Unless otherwise noted, a ninja cannot select an individual ninja trick more than once. Tricks marked with an asterisk (*) add effects to a ninja’s sneak attack. Only one of these tricks can be applied to an individual attack and the decision must be made before the attack is made. A complete listing of ninja tricks can be found here: Ninja Tricks
Major magic rogue talent
Prerequisite: Intelligence 11, minor magic rogue talent Benefit: A rogue with this talent gains the ability to cast a 1st-level spell from the sorcerer/wizard spell list two times a day as a spell-like ability. The caster level for this ability is equal to the rogue’s level. The save DC for this spell is 11 + the rogue’s Intelligence modifier.
Under ki powers of qigong monk
Spells: These ki powers duplicate the effects of a spell, and are spell-like abilities. A qinggong monk’s class level is the caster level for these spell-like abilities, and she uses Wisdom to determine her concentration check bonus.
Kinetisists feel way more magical than the above examples do but they don’t play like a typical caster what with the absence of spell slots. On the other hand just like casters they are almost entirely reliant on their magical stuff for lack of better words.
So the question is are kinetisists actually mages.
