Are you creative? Political? Your subconscious might have the answers. According to Reader’s Digest, your dreams have a lot to say about the kind of person you are—and the things that motivate you. Curious what your subconscious is trying to tell you? Check out these possible things your dreams might indicate about your personality.
Are you creative?
Do you dream about the usual places in your life – your home and your workplace? Or, are your dreams more likely to take place in an unusual setting? If you are creative, you probably aren’t dreaming of the same old places like your home. You’re off to exotic new worlds. And, when you face an obstacle in your dreams, a creative person is more likely to be blocked by a natural object like a boulder or a log that is stopping their progress.
Is there something you're avoiding?
Do you have an issue with another person that you don’t want to face? Are you feeling something deep inside that you don’t want to examine closely? Is there a problem that you’re just not ready to face? If you’re running away from a terrible stranger in your dreams, have a monster chasing you or are trying to outrun a tidal wave, it could be a sign that there is something you just aren’t ready to face or are actively avoiding.
Can you quit smoking?
If you’re a smoker who is trying to quit, your dreams may give a clue as to your possible success. If you dream about smoking and then experience dream-guilt about taking that puff, you are actually more likely to succeed. Could it be that the guilt you feel in your dream gives you more strength to stay on the non-smoking path?
Are you Type A?
If you're a strong, on-the-go personality, it shows up in dreams. Laid back people are less likely to have disturbing dreams. They may carry their natural calm into their dream life. On the other hand, Type A personalities are more like to have disturbing dreams. The pressure they put on themselves and the stress that feel may be making a nighttime appearance.
