What does it mean when you dream of a detective? If you dream you were followed around by a detective, it means you are suspicious of being tailed. You have to ask yourself, have you done anything to deserve this scrutiny?
On the other hand, if you dream of being a detective, then you may like to reflect on why you had that dream. If your job is being a private investigator, then it is natural that you would dream of being a detective, since dreams usually continue the same theme that affected you during your waking hours.
