Are these Psyches?

The definition of a psyche from my small NBO is:

A gross deviation from normal system, such as opening 1♠ with a doubleton spade, or 1NT with a void. It is a permissible tactic, provided that the bid is as much a surprise to partner as it is to the opponents. There should be no such thing as a ‘safe’ psyche.

It came as a surprise to me that 2 out of the following 3 bids were NOT deemed to be psyches....

1) Love All, Bidding P-1C-2S! defined as weak, hand 987532,98,76,832

2) Red v Green, Bidding 1S-2C No reason to ask, hand was K,J93,98,QJT5432

3) Green v Red, Bidding P-P-1N defined as 15-17, hand T97,JT7,K542,KT5

What do you think?
