In January 2006 in New York, the patient of a well-known psychiatrist draws the face of a man that has been repeatedly appearing in her dreams. In more than one occasion that man has given her advice on her private life. The woman swears she has never met the man in her life.

That portrait lies forgotten on the psychiatrist’s desk for a few days until one day another patient recognizes that face and says that the man has often visited him in his dreams. He also claims he has never seen that man in his waking life.

The psychiatrist decides to send the portrait to some of his colleagues that have patients with recurrent dreams. Within a few months, four patients recognize the man as a frequent presence in their own dreams. All the patients refer to him as THIS MAN.

From January 2006 until today, at least 2000 people have claimed they have seen this man in their dreams, in many cities all over the world: Los Angeles, Berlin, Sao Paulo, Tehran, Beijing, Rome, Barcelona, Stockholm, Paris, New Delhi, Moskow etc.

At the moment there is no ascertained relation or common trait among the people that have dreamed of seeing this man. Moreover, no living man has ever been recognized as resembling the man of the portrait by the people who have seen this man in their dreams.

This Man

DERPNOTE: This isn’t a creepypasta proper, obviously. I stumbled onto this website tonight and found it very intriguing and, of course, creepy. Particularly because I’m totally falling for the feeling that I’ve seen him before, too! Anyhow, I thought you guys might enjoy reading about & discussing this enough to make it worth posting.

    This has been explained, memory is never perfect and is subject to change/Outside influences and since what you see in your dreams is just remembering such dream this man is just a change made by suggestion.

    Its the perfect image of familarity and vague-ness that all sends a chill down our spine. Perfect, really, any other slight detail may have ruined it. The Mind. Funny thing.

      I’m having the same feelings. I believe it is the mind playing tricks but that doesn’t make it any less creepy. I agree with other comments in how he looks familiar because his features are easy to change in the mind. Don’t want to look at this picture any longer though.

    I dreamed about this man last night. I had a nightmare. It was a weird dream too. It was sort of like a sick game that people were brought into and I was one of them. There were different levels But at each level you were told to walk down a different hallway. Each one was creepier than the last. some looked like hospital hallways with cob-webs and flickering lights. Others were just a long hallway with florescent lights. Anyway, there was me and I say about 6 other people. Now randomly, depending on the spot you stepped on, the floor would give out and if you fell thru the floor HE would get you. You could hear the cries of people that have already fallen thru and the screams filled your head. They were screaming for help and telling everyone how terrible he was. I remember not many people were left and the two people in front of me had fallen thru the floor, but this time he wasn’t below them. It had fallen dead silent. HE came around to corner with this maniac look on his face bout didn’t say one word. I lowered myself into a corner and held my hands close to my ears because the closer HE got the louder the screams from the other people got . Then he blinked twice and I woke up. I was crying and covered in sweat. I swear I haven’t read anything about this man till today and as soon as I saw his picture, a chill ran down my spine.

    The longer I look at his face.. the more I realize I’ve seen This Man in many, MANY of my nightmares. – He always ended up killing me. – This is the first time I’ve ever read anything about him..

    I cried when I looked at him. There’s a sadness to him. I’m still crying. I”m glad to say I’ve never seen him in my dreams, but my body flooded with grief when I looked at his eyes…. his eyes are the scariest part. They hide something, even in the drawing.

    Ahahaha, he kinda looks like Andrew Lloyd Webber to me.

    Which is funny and slightly weird because I just recently got into Phantom of the Opera and ended up seeing ALW’s face for the first time.

    the author of this picture drew it in such a way that it would remind somebody of a man they had seen but just vaguely remember

    I would’ve liked more detail derpy. I understand the reluctance to copy/paste, but there’s no harm in rewording stuff. :) Or.. copying and pasting.

    I have never had a helpful dream in my entire life. I would like to point out that this man has many very distinguished general facial characteristics of an average middle aged caucasian, or asian, possibly even mexican. since the picture doesn’t verify any race, other than being less than dark skinned, it could be very possible that people have seen a very similar “dream person” that looks like this particular general picture in some way or form. Since the dream person was, in fact, seen in a dream it is difficult to remember details, but very easy to remember (if ur capable of remembering dreams) general facial characteristics.

    I find that the use of a psychiatrist in the story is very ironic, since this story is, in and of itself, a psychological study.

    no im not smart. :D but can i has cookie for long comment?

    Its something about his mouth. That smile, although not quite inhuman, seems to stretch a bit farther than it should. It makes me feel uncomfortable.

      he has the lips of an african american male. another general characteristic that is meant to make his face seem familiar to a very wide variety of humans who have had dreams with strangers in them.

    He looks like he has down-syndrome. That’s why he’s so creepy.
