Dreaming of using a calculator may reflect an unconscious grappling with quantifiable aspects of life, perhaps a yearning for order amidst chaos.

Thinking a bit more creatively... It could symbolize an attempt to rationalize emotions, a Freudian defense mechanism known as intellectualization. Seeing another use a calculator, however, might represent a projection of your own self-assessment onto others, a manifestation of the Freudian concept of transference. Alternatively, it could symbolize a perceived external locus of control, a surrendering of personal agency. Both scenarios underscore a need for balance between emotional intuition and logical reasoning, a harmonious integration of the id, ego, and superego.0
