Dreaming of twisting something could be an unconscious manifestation of your desire to exert control or influence over a situation or individual.

Taking that analysis a bit deeper... It may also reflect your internal struggle to reconcile conflicting emotions or thoughts. On the contrary, witnessing something being twisted in a dream may suggest a perceived distortion of reality, possibly a Freudian indication of your mistrust towards the information presented to you. It could also symbolize your fear of change or transformation. Both of these dreams invite a deeper exploration of your psyche, particularly your coping mechanisms and perception of control.
