Questions and answers

d) What were your answers?

     As the dreamer was asked to provide information about the dream figures, places, situations, activities, etc., about his or her feelings in the dream, and also about their life situation you, as a listener, most likely had your own answers to those questions. It is extremely important to keep a clear distinction between your answers and those that the dreamer provided. If you don't, you will tend to assume that the dreamer's answers and reactions are the same as those you would have had. This can easily lead to projecting your information, feeling reactions, and even life situation onto the hapless dreamer.
