    Yeah, I've never had one of those before either.

    I've had a naked in public dream, but there wasn't the panic and scare that's associated with it. I was just kinda naked. You know, in public. It wasn't really a big deal to everyone walking around... even though I was the only one...

    I know that I love having nightmares. It's so much fun.

    But I rarely remember my dreams but have them all the time. They are usually set in real places that morph into strange far away lands that are for some reason completely recognisable.

    Vampire dreams are the best though, do any other NTs have dreams about killing people? That's a regular motif in mine.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    Some people claim that Ni is Nightmare fuel. I don't know if that's true, but if I'm any indication, then it may very well be.
    That's interesting, I rarely (if ever) have nightmares but I do tend to have dreams that have reoccuring motifs. Water and wrecked cars seem to the current themes, I'm sure they're symbolic of turmoil or something like that. I've heard that dreams are used to solve problems or something so maybe that's it?

    My dreams tend to express my less used tertiary (Fe) and inferior functions (Si) from what I gather, so maybe dreams deal with the less used facets of the personality?

    Last night I completely slapped myself (mentally) to have a dream, I was thinking "Ok man, you better have a dream, and remember it, or your really stupid". And sure enough I completely remembered one I had. I also told myself, "ok you got to wake up earlier like 8 or something", so I think that had something to do with it, I slept from like 3 - now. That's only four hours of sleep, but I feel fine for some odd reason. It's probably because I woke up during deep REM that's why I remember my dream, and why I feel not very sleepy.

    So anyway, my dream. Yeah I could go into a very complex and detailed explanation about it but I'd feel really crazy because it was really weird. The short version, is that I dreamed (first person) of myself and going to the doctor for some reason I didn't know in the dream. Anyway they ended up using a machine on me in which I completely made up in my dream. In the dream I figured out they were using the machine before I went to the actual doctor, and not even joking, I researched it in my dream. Not even kidding, I actually wikied it in my dream. I knew everything about this machine in my dream, it's like it was completely real. I woke up and checked to see if it was real (it isn't) because I was that fooled into thinking it existed. So, I went to the doctor and then the whole dream shifted from my point of view to the doctors point of view (first person) and he explained the entire machine to me. What was weird was that it shifted to the doctor's POV way before he met me and I saw from his POV in the dream the majority of his day. So he used the machine on me this time being from my POV in the dream, and it didn't hurt or anything, I felt better and the dream was over. When I woke up though I was amazed how my mind could completely make up this machine and all of it's complexity in just a dream. Too bad the machine idea sucked, if it was something good, I could be rich. I could completely draw it out and patent it I know it that well.

    I remember about two dreams a week. They're usually not abstract, just unusual situations. But there has been a few weird ones.

    I've lucidly dreamed quite a few times, but only had control about four times in my life. I've never consciously created worlds or anything, though, I just have control over my actions. Although it's hard not to wake up when you know you're dreaming.

    I don't know if this is the same for everyone else, but nightmares have a completely different atmosphere for me. Like I know it's going to be a nightmare before anything has happened yet. I used to often wake myself up immediately after feeling that atmosphere, but now on the rare occasion I have a nightmare, I just let it play itself out.

    I wonder what would've happened if you put one bag inside the other...

    Odd, that's what I though about when reading this thread. However, I don't know that I've ever dreamt the actual "killing another person" part. My dreams always find me after the fact, contemplating methods of getting rid of the body while not being discovered.

    And then there's the very large, rundown house with a maze of small rooms containing different people I've known. The person I'm looking for is generally in the attic. Smoking pot and playing a guitar.

    I dream a lot... skin ripped off from portions of my face... wild chases into nothingness... strapping plastic bags onto my arms and using them as wings to fly... hundreds of scenes repeating endlessly... long and complicated romances with women who are composites of many I've known in the past... dandling a little girl, my daughter (I don't have a daughter in real life), on my knee and telling her nursery rhymes... one time I even dreamed I was a woman who became attracted to a man who looked exactly like myself!

    I dream constantly. Sometimes in the wee hours of the morning I'll go a long time dreaming, then waking, then sleeping again and resuming the dream.
