different me

I tend to have many dreams where I am not myself, but rather another person or fictional character, as often as not a male character (once even a cartoon character). Occasionally it will happen that I change from myself to a new character in the middle of the dream. Almost every one of these dreams is a chasing dream, where my character is being chased and must out-wit or run great distances. Also, I can be either the main character or watch from a third-person view, like a camera - it flips back and forth without my conscious control. Does the context of the dream in this case matter in the interpretation, or is the most significant part the fact that I myself am not the principle actor, and if so, what does it mean?
