Random Public Poll  
So I was thinking earlier today (like that's a rare occurrence ;P), and I got an idea for a poll. I'd appreciate it if you could answer this, though it serves no purpose besides satisfying my curiosity. :)

Close your eyes and imagine yourself sitting on a couch, chair, loveseat, or something of the sort in your living room. After you have a clear mental picture of this, open your eyes and answer the following question (DO NOT READ THE QUESTION UNTIL AFTER IMAGINING THE SCENE!!): What point-of-view do you have of this scene of you sitting in your living room?

First-person point-of-view: you're looking out your eyes into the room.
Third-person point-of-view: you're looking at yourself seated on the couch/chair/whatever.

I saw the room, the couch - looking around as if from my eyes, and then saw myself sitting there - like I was in the first person looking around and then I put myself in the picture, even tho I was already there.

I'm definitely going to browse through my psych textbook during my trip tomorrow to see if this exercise is in there. I want to be able to tell people what this means, and I'm curious if first-person <-> third-person switching is mentioned/means anything special. :]

I regularly dream in the first person and in the third person (to an extent), so it doesn't really surprise me.
