    This morning, my partner (ExFP) woke up crying and upset by a dream he had. As is usually the case with me, he just couldn't shake it, and he has these types of dreams at least a few times per month. In comparison, my ex-husband (INTJ) hardly ever dreamed, and if he did, his dreams were about computer games.

    I'm interested to hear your thoughts and experiences!
    I think it's possible, but of course nothing in Type is ever 100%.

    I have an ISFJ friend and an ISFP friend who feel their feelings with their physical bodies. This is very foreign to me, but quite normal for them. It's hard for me to watch when my friends have a bad dream and then go through the rest of the day feeling "icky". I noticed that both of them were ISFx types, and I wonder if perhaps ISFx types might be more prone to this than other types.

    I have never woken up crying from a dream.

    I sometimes have nightmares that leave me irrationally terrified and breathing heavily. Once, a dream that ended with me screaming left me making a soft "ah" noise in the real world when I woke up. Sometimes my dreams affect me enough that my mood for the next three hours. I've never had anything more than that.

    Everyone that's ever shared a bed or room with me, tells me that I carry on terribly in my sleep. Not in a nice way, though, it's kicking and fighting and what not. I don't ever remember it. It doesn't surprise me too much though.

    Well, I do have dreams, and they do affect me to some extent, but I've never cried/ laughed/ screamed from any of them.

    I have, however, used that heightened sense of whatever feeling I had for the first hour afterwards, maybe, looking for some kind of implication that it could have been a premonition or what not. So, generally, I'm sensitive to what happened in the hopes of detecting some kind of supernatural discovery, haha.

    So, no, to the original question, since the actual feeling fades away so quickly.

    Me neither, but a few of them scared me so much I'd still be in the state for days or weeks later. Usually I dream because I feel extremely good or stressed, unfortunately it's mostly stress. Then I can't shake them off either, and often there's a realistic touch to them.
    Their kind of like therapy to me, when I look at them a certain way, it's exactly what I'm feeling. I usually have 7 nightmares out of 10 "dreams", most of it is just bad repressed stress. It has to come out one way or another doesn't it?
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-
