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.

    I’ve never seen him in my dreams and I hope I would never have to. I guess he looks familiar because his face gives off this creeper vibe?

    This is a viral marketing campaign for that website. The man in the picture is designed with vague enough features that just about anyone can recognize him. The website thisman.org is owned by an advertising company.

    Needless to say, 1/10.

    I’m not scared of him. He just looks like a middle-aged man, nothing to be scared of irrationally. Also, I don’t recognized him at all. He kind of looks like some sort of movie director, if anything.

    Nope. Never seen him. I felt nothing looking at the picture.
    Now if you show me a mall I’ll be properly freaked out, since I was about 7 I’ve been dreaming about the same mall.

    He is of no importance, the occult equivalent of a cockroach. A cockroach I should have squashed years ago.

    Due to the fact I have recurring dreams so often, and recognised this picture on sight… I am seriously debating wether to follow the link or not…

    I had recurring nightmares about this man skinning a little boy alive and I saw him once while I was awake. I know it sounds like bs but I’m totally serious. My nightmares stopped when I was 18 and a psychic told me he had killed me in a past life. Take it for what you want but in my nightmares he always was chasing me with a knife or killing the little boy. The nightmares were very lucid and I’m terrified of green vans to this day. He’s real!

    his face is so “generic” .It’s actually amazing how his features would blend well being Asian,European ,or American.

    It’s like you’d see that kind of features on most 40 to 55 year old men.Like I said, his face is “generic”.
