The question is: is a psionic attack covered under "all energy" (meaning, does stuff like Energy Dampening armor partially protect against it)? If so, the psi-shield isn't as much of a must-have. It's still really nice, though.
Not according to the UI. With Energy Dampening Armour equipped Psionic resistance is still very low (around 2% or so, character has no Psionic traits) but that rises to 33% with the phase shifted shield so it does give a noticeable resistance buff.
