    Conscious Daydreams
    - Flying
    - Exploring space and/or time
    - Being / Living as female (even trivial-seeming things, like going out for coffee or just clothes-shopping with friends... not much excitement here!)
    - Designing a home / living space that "feels" right
    - Being appealing / attractive to someone romantically
    - Being pregnant
    - Lost in my own worlds / visions / creative and logical thought processes [just taking an idea and following it through as far as I can]

    Sex fantasies usually consist of either:
    - Being "bad"
    - Being desired by someone more powerful than me

    (And that's all I'm going to say about that!)

    I was going to say "fantasy" blurs into the things I want to understand and/or create -- they can sometimes be less fantasy and more just exploration/understanding something totally.

    Oh yes, I've always wished I had the time and money to be an alpine climber (and to get up Everest, although some of the other peaks take more ambition nowadays) or a rock climber. I imagine climbing and/or reaching the top of some beautiful views sometimes.

    And are INTJ women terrified at the thought of being powerless?

    [Control issue: One fears losing control and hurting others, the other fears losing control and not being able to resolve/accomplish things]

    And could these fears be what is coming out in the dreams? Are these negative feelings suppressed during the day and/or otherwise ignored, only to be dredged up by the subconscious and dealt with during sleep and/or daydreaming?

    I wonder...
    That's a good guess; it seems to apply to me. Except that I don't suppress these fears--I struggle with them and live them out every day. The dilemma between hurting someone or protecting them is a huge one for me. I feel like I'm always weighing the potential consequences of my actions, trying to decide whether the results of a certain action are worth the pain it could cause others.

    Sometimes I really really want not to love or care so that I could do what I felt was right without worrying about who got hurt. It seems like such a free and easy way to live. Unfortunately, people matter.

    I do have vivid, violent nightmares.

    Daydreams:

    -Fiction storylines about other people.

    -How my life might have been different if I was a stronger person, both mentally and physically.

    -How I could have made better choices in certain areas of my life, mostly school and interaction with family.

    -Tossing around various ideas and applying them to hypothetical situations.

    Revenge fanatsies usually take the form of having the fates enact upon others the pain they cause. Their own stupidity and hubris doing them in.

    Why separate sex fantasies from "daydreams"? They're both fantasies and they're both conscious.

    Or, perhaps, Kilimanjaro. Not that I've planned this out... or anything...

    But that's what I mean. I go from "that'd be cool" to "I'm bloody well doing it". I'm not sure where to draw the line for fantasies until they are wayyyyyyy out there. And even then, if it is physically possible... I'm not sure I wouldn't be thinking of a way to do it (by physically, I'm not even talking about swimming across the pacific Ocean. I'm honestly not sure if that'd be "impossible" enough not to consider. I'm talking about visiting other dimensions - something I'd be in line for if it ever happened - but not something I can make happen).

    That happens to me also and it is horrible. I recently had a dream that I had to cut off my left index finger. It was a feeling of horrible loss.

I used to have a recurring dream about the moon crashing into the earth. It always started serenely, then the person I was with would say, "Doesn't the moon look larger tonight?" Then i'd get that heavy, sick feeling. My mind would develop a sense of the magnitude of catastrophe and my helplessness.

    I don't dream about revenge like a 'good' INFJ is supposed to do. I prefer peaceful resolutions, simple solutions. Conflict makes me tired. Sexual fantasies can be rather drawn out scenarios with a great many details and always explores the mind as well. It also has to do with the experience of my being perceived as sensual by someone. For some reason, isolated scenarios really draw me. I also fantasize about setting foot on another planet, like Europa on which Jupiter would hang heavily in the sky, reflecting upon its ice. I also enjoy attempting to conceptualize things like the fourth dimension, imagining what it would look like to see a hypersphere move through space. I'm regrettably ignorant of formal study, but if time were a dimension, I wonder what the four-dimensional shape of a person would look like. Perhaps like drawn out ribbons interweaving with one another in this long braid of humanity streaming from the earth. Okay, so that one is extra weird, but stuff like that entertains me.

    Look at the bright side, you could actually change your dreams into summer action movies.

    Life is like a daydream...every second I fantasize about something different..

    For example, right now I'm listening to music and imagining being a dancer at some performance or whatever, and after I finish typing this, I'm actually going to get up and dance. It's a good song!

    Hmmm, never met anyone who fantisises like i do, seems no-one on this thread does either

    My most recent fantasy was a series of battles where, suddenly in our world, everyones beliefs started to become reality, and the stronger and more people believed in something the more true it would become. Anyway, while people tried to create peace by deciding on a universal belief to become reality, everyone assumed that their own beliefs were superior so it ended in war.

    The buddhists went first then other major and minor religious and personal beliefs began to die out (myer briggs very early on). In the end only a few individuals with strong beliefs were left, a few muslims, one or two christians, a guy from his own cult, someone who was convinced he was god, a devil worshipper and an absolute nihilist.

    Some of the one on one fights were entertaining (levay satanist vs devil worshipper was a good one, as was hard atheist vs fundy christian and fundy vs muslim), but in the end the best bit was when all the remaining people had to team up and set their differences aside to fight the nihilist! Unfortunatly he was too strong and reality ended with a scream of "THERE IS NOTHING".

    Still there were glimpses of a sequel, (a seperate reality made by a few humans and aliens away from the destroyed one), which hopefully will explain why beliefs are having a direct effect on reality, because it never explained why it was happening!

    Anyway that was today's fantasy, was a long but good one, hope tomorrows is as good

    Oh and most of my fantasies are violent in some form, and i'm normally (if i'm in them) very powerful but not the most powerful. I think this is me just desiring more respect and control, since everyone thinks i'm a strange idiot in real life.
