Do you fantasize in 1st or 3rd person?

When you daydream about something naughty, do you more often do it in 1st person (e.g., seeing only your arms and body) or 3rd person (e.g., seeing yourself as if you're watching you in a home movie).

For discussion, is this different for daydreaming about eating food or seeing yourself enjoying a vacation?

Yah, just testing the poll software...
I'm a man and I fantasize in 1st person
I'm a man and I fantasize in 3rd person
I'm a woman and I fantasize in 1st person
I'm a woman and I fantasize in 3rd person
None of the above

I see them all the same way, as if it's something I'm writing.

If I'm really daydreaming a fantasy, I'm picturing ME in there. Not what it would look like from a camera or someone else's perspective.

Read my diary Journal of a Taxi Driver for taxi stories and pictures of flowers and trees.

The poll function could be improved by having the ability to add photos, and also to make the post sticky? Probably a lot of work in doing that all the same, and perhaps not worth the return?

It's a good function otherwise.

Wake up and hold yer noses.........

Thanks - polls were one of the last things added to blogs. Had thought about photos so can do some fun visual things. On the dev board... a bit ways down.

Andrew,

Good poll..Interesting question.. How do folks fantasize when they are imagining themselves making love or on vacation ? food ? I think that we see ourselves in different ways but when we imagine in 3rd person I would guess we see all the daydreams whether about food, sex or travel the same way. Picturing ourselves enjoying it.

Hope the poll software is working the way you need it to.

Nothing to add to what he said !

Except, as a matter of interest, viewing in the 3rd person (as if TV screen) indicates disassociation in psyche terms, whereby one is detached, distant (the best mode to view your problems in and brain emits less 'stress related' chemicals). Viewing through 1st person (own eyes) indicates one is fully associated with the experience, the brain will emit more 'feelgood' chemicals in this mode, so this mode best kept for nice stuff.

So I would be associated when contemplating all the good stuff.... and disassociated when pondering problems or, for example, people I don't like

What about fantasizing about your significant other with someone? How about that choice. Different strokes.


Andrew replies on 3/8/2013 7:23 am:
Ah, then I assume it's 3rd person... and hot

I picked door #1 but, for me, it can be either assuming that what I think of as a fantasy is the same as what other people thing. And I'm not sure that it is.

I do think that you have a substantial number of people here for whom "none of the above" is a real option - if we were easily categorized then the chances are we wouldn't be here.

I'd say that my fantasies - when I do have them and I'm not really much of a fantasy kind of guy - tend more to #1 than #2 but that would only be true if I'm fantasizing by myself. When I'm with other people they tend far more to #2, the third person view. I can guess what Jung would make of this but that worries me not an iota.

To summarize - polls tend to give the interviewer the answer they expect because of the questions that they don't ask.

Agreed that the poll needs to be neutral

Thank you, Andrew, for clarification.

I don't use poll, because i can't add a photo in the post. But if you change that, i would definitely love to use it.

I heard you said that is bit in the future, but please, don't forget about it. I will be patiently waiting for the wonderful idea to happen.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned 2nd person. I don't think that way (I only think in 2nd person during conflicts), but there must be people who imagine being somebody else fucking them

...or imagine themselves fucking another one of themselves. Why not?
