Dreaming of a mallet, in Freudian terms, may be a representation of a manifestation of the id's primal urges, symbolizing a raw, unrefined method of problem-solving.

Likewise — It suggests a subconscious desire to dismantle complex issues with brute force rather than nuanced understanding. If you are using a mallet in your dream, it could indicate a latent frustration or impatience, a yearning to simplify or expedite a process in your waking life. However, the mallet also serves as a reminder of the potential destructiveness of such an approach, urging the dreamer to integrate the ego's rationality and the superego's morality into their decision-making process.
