    I remember very few dreams! When I do remember, I’m myself though I can feel like something’s not quite right because it’s not real life.

    stillnothing :  I wish you had an option for both lol for the most part in my dreams I see through my own eyes but I’ve had dreams in third person.

    I’ve had both view points, but I usually see through my own eyes. One time, I did see myself die in third person, that was a creepy dream!

    stillnothing :  I rarely remember my dreams but when I do they from my own perspective.

    slothbear :  I definitely switch languages in dreams occasionally depending on who I’m talking to.

    stillnothing :  funny you posted about this. My family had the same discussion a few years ago now. My mum dreams from a third person perspective, my dad from his own. My siblings dream the same way as the parent they most resemble in thinking and personality. It was so weird to discover that and I wonder if its just a coincidence or genetics at play.

    I dream mostly from third person as if I’m watching a movie but I can still influence the outcome of what I’m watching. Which sounds about right…control freak/organiser in my dreams too!😂 I share my mums personality and dream style! 

    Interesting thing too about dreams…my Dad came here as a child, did all his schooling here. Is a fluent English speaker and has lived here for 60+ years but he dreams in his native tongue. Even people who don’t speak his native tongue somehow become fluent in his dreams!!

    Gah, just came hear to read and be jealous! I haven’t ever had a dream in my life (insomnia). 

    I think it would be so cool to dream in third person though!!

    Fun question! I am a mixture of both first person and third person dreaming, though I definitely lean much more towards first person. Like others have said though, sometimes I’ll be watching something more like a fly on the wall.

    Both! Sometimes it’s like a movie I’m watching, sometimes it’s scenarios I’m in from my own perspective. But I don’t remember my dreams often so it’s hard to say  what percentage are which.

    I’ve suffered from sleep paralysis a lot since I was little.

    It’s when your mind wakes up before your body, so you think you woke up but you’re constantly “waking” and finding yourself in a dream within a dream within a dream… And sometimes it feels like you’re trapped and someone is trying to strangle you to keep you from actually waking.

    When that happens, I see things from my own eyes,m and as though I just woke up. And I’ll get up and walk around the house thinking it’s real life, until I notice that something is not right and it’s still a dream.

    This is a really interesting thread, I dream in 1st person and I honestly had no idea some people dream in 3rd person or both. 

    I sometimes have lucid dreams. Often have very vivid dreams. I do creative writing as a hobby (a few small things published but nowhere even close to fame & fortune) and I’ve incorporated a few of my vivid dreams into my writing on occasion. I also keep a journal I’ve written in semi-regularly for 2 decades now and if my dream is particularly vivid or interesting or disturbing I’ll write it down. Except for the most disturbing ones. 

    Weird fact: in several of my bad dreams there is a wall clock with no hands on it, for some reason it feels really ominous but I’ve no idea what it means. My old Celtic Nana was very into dream meanings, sixth sense etc, I wish she was still around to ask her about all these things.
