Hey /b/ I'm just curious. Does anyone else dream in third person? I have never had a dream in first person and never though anything of it untill recently and when I started asking people they where baffled they couldn't imagine such a thing. Does anyone else do it?

Holy shit.....It just happened to me. I dreamt from the perspective of a young woman trying to start a relationship with another man (not me, someone else). It was like watching a movie.

I dream in a kind of 2.5th person. I know and feel exactly whats happening but I still see it in 3d person. It's like feeling whatever you're watching.

It's hard to explain its a dream but you see yourself at all times. Like if you watch yourself on a video or something but your consciousness is in your body but you see from outside it. You still cant like know if something is behind you even if you see it or anything.

I dream in the third person more than the first person. Including dreaming of myself as another person.

Third person dreams are normally conceived by people who game a lot, they are also found to be able to alter their dreams perceptively easier than the average person.

>>425269290 I never realize that I'm dreaming until I'm right about to wake up. It makes for some pretty interesting dream sequences. honestly I'm not surprised my dream sounded like something else. Pretty much everything has already been done so I can't really hope to be that creative.

Virtually every time I have nocturnal emissions (wet dreams)... I'm an animal fucking another animal. It's a reoccurring theme and seems as normal as "sex in the missionary position for the sole purpose of procreation" in the context of the dream anyway. It's not until I wake up wet, confused, aroused and embarrassed that I realize how peculiar it is. Last time I was a sperm whale... the time before that, a bull. Imokwiththis.png

>>425266229 Girl looks Asian to me >>425266598 Psychologists don't know shit. Your whole system is flawed and most of the people who are psychologists are fuckin twacked. And in response to OP. All the time. I also often change between characters and re-watch certain parts of my dreams. When I can lucid dream though I am almost always me in some form. Usually I am talking to a woman about something. Recently I talked to an angel and was told that god needed me, but that I wasn't special in any way. It was really odd. Also I noticed that watching an interesting movie or reading a good book tends to influence my dreams quite a lot. After doing one of those things is when I am most likely to have a 3rd person dream. Does anyone keep a dream journal? I started after I stopped smoking weed and started remembering my dreams and it has been pretty strange going back and reading it. Feels like some one else wrote it, and then I start to remember shit. Anyone else get that feeling?

>>425269441 You're not supposed to take melatonin every night though. It slowly kills the functions in your brain if you take them consistently. I usually take it for one night, wait a week or two and take another. Just so I don't turn into a zombie.

Film major here, every once in a while I'll have one of my 'movie dreams'. I'm never in them, they are long, have a complex plot and even 'title overs' - text that I can read that sometimes set up the time or location of the scene.

>>425270268 melatonin gets produced in your pineal gland naturally when you close your eyes, so it isn't technically a drug, its a supplument

I dream in both first and third person sometimes in the same dream. I have been having a reoccurring dream where I see myself walk into a movie theater, sit down near the front (mst3k style) and then a movie starts, from then on I'm seeing the movie in first person.

I'm actually sort of surprised when I end up dreaming in first person. It's usually always third person. I've had a few recurring dreams where that movie announcer guy narrates my dreams; the dreams flash to certain scenes whether I'm in them or not like a movie. And for any psych students, there's nothing interesting I can say about my mental health that's too odd. I'm a likable guy in person and know exactly what to say and how to act around anyone of any status or intelligence. I'm smart, but it's mostly medical shit and the arts. I'm also good at problem solving. It could stem from "Peter Pan syndrome" and my creativity, I guess. I literally daydream 80% of the time, even during high stress situations where I need to think critically. I have tons of people that have gotten intimate with me and later on said that I have too many quirks, but I don't personally notice those quirks. My brother, who I live with, has never noticed them either; however, he's somewhat autistic and can't read too well into character. I'm an astronomical liar, being able to say anything I want while being able to convince myself that it actually happened that way. So a problem could possibly arise from that. What my biggest trigger could be is my nervous system. I've had tremors my whole life, and I've even controlled my own dreams from time to time. I'm also incredibly paranoid. Go ahead, psych students, take from this what you will. Pic unrelated.
