Why is it that all my bad dreams are in first person, but the good ones are in third? Does this happen to anyone else?

I switch frame of reference constantly in my dreams. First I'm the hero, then the bad guy, then me, then the person I'm talking to...

Does that get confusing? Talking to yourself?

My sense of self usually shifts along with my perception. Plus, I don't become every character, just the main characters who are involved with driving some sort of plot line. I don't have to switch into women that I'm putting moves on, so there is some stability. The unfortunate thing is sometimes I perception shift into an evil character, a nemesis, and have to drive that personality towards unscrupulous goals. My subconscious doesn't do things half-assed, so that can be kind of unpleasant.

I rarely remember my dreams, honestly, but those few I do seem to regularly be in 1st person only. I do recall some dreams from years ago when it was in 3rd person, but not the specifics of them.

I wonder what it would be like to dream in 2nd person...

Wouldn't that just be 1st person (or 3rd, I guess) with a narrator?
