Default Do you dream in third or first person?

I dream in both perspectives... sometimes– when dreams are really lucid and realistic and I feel pain– I dream in first person, but usually in third.
What about you guys?

And, continuing on about realistic dreams, do any of you use all of your senses in your dreams, like taste, smell, ect? I do, but no one else in my family does.

Good, I thought I was the only one. It's actually a mixture. I'll watch myself going through the events in the dream but I'll still physically feel everything.

And I don't have many senses except, I don't know, feeling raindrops on my face.

Both, depending on the dream. Sometimes both at the same time. I'm also usually younger in my dreams, 9 or 10 compared to almost 14.

Mostly in third person, but in one part of a dream, it was in first person.

I'm the same! When I dream in third person I'm always watching from behind myself.

When I'm dreaming about myself, I dream in first person. But sometimes I have dreams like stories (where they're not about myself) and then I guess they're in third person.

I usually dream in third person, watching from behind, from the side, or from an angled aerial view(I think that's what it's called xD). Occasionally I dream in first-person, though rarely. And sometimes I switch perspectives in a dream.
