When I am myself I usually dream in 1th person, but when I am, or control, someone else it often is in 3th or 2th person.

I was discussing with a friend just now how almost all of my dreams are in third person. He said his were mostly first. So I wanted to see if he or myself was in the majority...and to my surprise I find I am in a small minority. I remember my dreams almost every night, vividly, to where if i describe them i can take up to an hour to explain the happenings. If I do dream in first person, i know i am dreaming and can continue sleeping if i want to see what happens. I am sometimes myself, sometimes a dude (i am female btw), but if I am not myself i am ALWAYS the same guy. I was joking with my friend that maybe it was me from a past life or something. anyway, i googled dreaming in third person and found this forum. I wanted to ask if anyone had any advice on my dreaming. should i try to control my dreams more? i wonder if it would be something i could do easily, since i am very aware of my own actions if i am first person. any advice would help. I am sorry about my inaccurate punctuation and such, when i get to typing i get slopppy

Welcome to LD4all, kristina ^^ . To answer your question, getting lucid (gaining control and realizing that you're dreaming) is pretty awesome. Some people rate their first lucid dream as one of the best experiences of their lives grin . As for how easy it is, it varies from person to person, but if you're fairly aware in your normal dreams, then you've already got a good start.

Back on topic, I always dream in first person when I'm lucid, but my NDs go back and forth between the perspectives (it seems like the less aware that I am, the more likely it is that I'm dreaming in 3rd person).

Another question: There are many dream checks to see if your dreaming or not like reading something, looking away and reading it again. But why not make it more simple like attempting to fly? I mean if you try to fly and you do, then your obviously dreaming. So why choose the reading texts or remembering things techniques when you can get right to it by trying something you would never be normally able to do?
I see your point, but there is another reality check which is both easier and less likely to backfire. The nose-pinching check. In case you're not familiar with it, what you do is tightly pinch shut your nose with your hand and then attempt to breathe through your nose. If you are dreaming you will still be able to breathe. This method basically has a 100% success rate and also has the added bonus of not looking utterly ridiculous (such as thrusting yourself into the air and flapping your arms). By the way, fun fact: you can always breathe while dreaming, regardless of being underwater, in space, etc. Try it smile.

My dreams are often in third person, in fact I'm often various different characters. I.E not myself. I have switched between two different characters perspectives and disembodied observer perspective within the same dream. Also occasionally my dream will pan out from first person perspective so I can watch the events from a distance. It's almost like in movies. Strange since I rarely watch movies
