This is the first time I've heard of others dreaming of Nazis. I had such dreams often during one year, then they stopped (or changed). In regard to Linda Leonard, I'm male and my father was the dominating, critical parent in my family -- my mother was and is the soul of graciousness and empathy. Maybe the Nazis just represent whoever is prominent in the dreamer's psyche.

Still, it's interesting that many women have these dreams -- I inherited my mother's temperament, which probably accounts for my depression as well, which seems to be more common in women.

And of course I have the exact same dream about taking a final for a course I somehow forgot to attend.

Both these dream types bolster my theory that though we are all unique, we aren't as unique as we think!

To weigh in on the mind/brain question, temperament emerges soon after birth and remains fairly constant for life -- a pretty huge genetic/bio factor in emotional life. Maybe free will is like a Chinese menu -- we have choices but only within a certain list of possibilities. I get 1 from Column A, 1 from Column B; you get 2 from A and none from B; some people only get a choice between the soup or the eggroll, no entrees at all...
