How often do you fantasize/daydream/imagine/envision throughout your day?
Most of the time. I very much live in my head and whenever i don't have to focus on an activity, it happens to some degree.
How vivid are these images?
Quite, but they're not so much visual as emotional. The feeling it gives me is more powerful than the image. I'm not that good at visualizing things very vividly anyway, it's always like a very faded picture with a lot of things missing. But the feelings can be strong.
Do you find these images to be out of your reach, or even far fetched?
I hardly ever daydream about unattainable things, but rather about things i'm currently missing in my life such as love, affection and sex. Or i daydream about scenarios where i interact with people who aren't currently in my presence, like a mental rehearsal for future interactions or something. In that respect, you could say they're momentarily out of my reach.
Do these images give you hope or despair (a sense of hopelessness)?
Hope. I suppose daydreaming is my preferred form of escapism. I was only when i was mentally very unstable that i imagined scenarios that got me down, but that was because in my mind they were unattainable at the time.
