sylar’s actual power was intuitive aptitude which basically is to know ‘how things ticked’
The whole watchmaker job that he had at the beginning shows this extremly well because he was able to tell if a watch was like a second late by just looking at it.
Because he had this power he could also see into people’s heads and see how they ‘ticked’ he then saw their power and he saw that he could have that power.
The first power that he actually ‘stole’ was telekinesis where he invited the guy over to his shop and then hit him on the head with the crystal thing and ‘consumed’ his power. somehow.
