    I think the most interesting thing of dreaming and type is that in dreams you don't really have type anymore and can more purely experience all aspects of yourself.

    I'm not aware much of my dreams anymore, but of the ones that I do remember:

    (1) Most of them are the sort that are somehow related to a problem that I was fixated on the day prior. They rarely directly confront the problem I was working on but end up giving some bit of insight in the periphery. Last night my combined boredom and mini type crisis landed me back taking a final exam in my last days of high school, and I was sent out of class to finish the rest of my test and instead of the nutrition posters in the hallways there were student-drawn posters describing each of the types xD And yeah a lot of other stuff happened from there but I'm not getting into all that publicly....

    (2) Then there's the little percentage of fear dreams that pop up that are very short. Usually things like natural disasters or car accidents, but some of them are too strange to describe in those terms. They rarely get into nightmare territory, as the dream me is usually either unusually calm about it or sort of an action movie hero in a rush.

    (3) Then there's multipart situational dreams not brought on by a particular problem in the day, that are like the story dreams, but with more of my RL situations and settings.

    (4) Then there's those "where the bleep did that come from?" story dreams that have multiple storylines going on and half of them don't really make sense. But they are sort of like those television series where there's these different characters and each of them has their own thread that eventually gets woven in with the others. The only example I can think of right now is "Heroes".... so it's like Heroes meets Wonderland

    To type connect these, I would say that in the (1) dreams it is almost like Ti and F blend together, (2) and (3) deal with general S things that I don't want to during the regular day, and (4) is where Ne converges into something like Ni

    But this is probably not what you were talking about, is it? I don't have any simple answers right now

    I've noticed a lot of people seem to have dreams about the day's events and problems, but I don't seem to have those. The closest I get are dreams that symbolically reflect my current emotional state. Plot-wise, they seem completely random and unrelated to real life events.

    I do get a lot of disaster/fear dreams. The scary dreams are the most interesting, like that volcanic apocalypse dream I had a few months ago. Come to think of it, I also had a tornado apocalypse dream at some point.... Last night I dreamed that I got in a car accident while driving down a slope that was way too steep. And the night before I had a creepy dream about a leak in my bedroom ceiling that started out dripping water, and then it started dripping black goo and made a hole in my floor that went all the way through. I wonder if it's weird that I actually like my scary dreams more than my other dreams?

    Anyways, I also have plenty of pleasant dreams, but those tend to be much more random and nonsensical, which is maybe why they're not as interesting.

    That's pretty much the way it works for me too. The elements and lessons to get from it are related to my previous irl problems but the plot/context is pretty random. Like being planted in high school bubbling a scantron when I graduated over 4 years ago. My dreams like also seem to be different from others in that they are not vivid in the slightest, and only vaguely representational of things that exist for me in reality. Like in the school I was at, there was my old principal as a sort of secretary and a couple other things like that but otherwise the setting, characters, situations are all very much made up.

    Interesting that your scary dreams are the most interesting..... my scary ones are maybe briefly interesting but very very short. It's the nonsense ones that are very long and like a blockbuster movie almost... But the two themes sort of blend here too, like some of those have some scary elements to them.

    Yup, mine too. Some of the most common settings for my dreams include malls, school, my house, some other made up house, a neighborhood, and inside a video game. But except for my house, all of those are made up. I might be in school, and it's supposed to be my high school or university, but it doesn't actually look like it. I might be playing a video game, but it's either a made up video game or one I know that looks completely different from how it's supposed to look.

    My dreams tend to either be a wordless series of random events or a story. Still, it is rare that actual words, not just cheering or something, will be spoken. Also, "I" tends to be a silent observer. Even a "first person" point of view is simply a view from the eyes of somebody else.

    An example story dream that I have had was about how while the rich got packages in the mail, the poor only got letters. I remember the sight of a destitute young child, sighing over a letter. I wonder if shadow Ni comes out in my dreams, because they often have a very thick sense of symbolism in them.
    I don't see any invisible treasure chests.

    I think what you dream(dream symbols) and how often you dream isnt about type, but about what the unconscious mind thinks of the real world. Still i think knowing someones type helps on analyzing his dreams.

    My dreams are rarely ever about the present day's events. Almost all relate to either the past or the future, and rarely offer any real-world solutions.

    The images and people are clear, but it takes time for me to think through after the dream about how they are connected.

    The best ones are ones where my mind actually works to create some sort of story. These ones often (but certainly not always) have romance as a central topic.

    I dream a lot, and they're always vivid and very realistic, no matter how little sense they make xP They're always colorful.

    I love dreams! I've yet to have a very lucid-dreaming experience. It's so hard for me to unclutter my mind at night for me to actually get into the pre-lucid-dreaming state.

    The dreams I remember are usually very vivid, high on sensory data and heavily plot based. I love dreaming! It's just so damn entertaining.
