The different people in our dreams, such as doctor, lawyer, business person or tramp, in general represent the different abilities, weaknesses or interests we have ourselves. Even if we know the ‘role model’ it still depicts that person’s quality or skill in yourself. The only difference might be that our personal reactions to that particular doctor or schoolteacher will also play a part. Roles often play an important part in our self-image. Without an appreciated social role, we may feel uncertain and ineffective. Maturity might require the acceptance that we are nothing but can be many things.

If it is you in the role, so the different roles you play in your dreams, such as actor, lawyer, soldier or cook, usually represent the different abilities, weaknesses or interests you have. We all have different roles in everyday life. So, a woman can be cook, lover, mother, counsellor, accountant, etc. A man can be a worker, gardener, father, handyman or builder, a chauffeur, and so on. What is important is to see if you can get at is why the dream is showing you in that role and how it is relevant to your life at the moment. Therefore, define what skills the role has, and see what the dream is commenting on them in regard to yourself.
