get really really stressed about something and then stay up till the early hours worrying about whatever and then go to sleep while dwelling on what has created the stress :D

I believe nightnares are the manifestation of waking stresses and problems weighing heavy on your mind. It's the sub conscious trying to sort out the problems you face in life. If you actively want to induce nightmare ( and i'm not sure why you want to) you need to bring stress and problems into your life.

I dont know how to induce nightmares, but if you do, best have a weapon in your pocket. Like a rocket launcher or something. Thats what I've got in my dream pocket 8-) :lol:
Roxas: Did you have fun chatting with the ghosts?
Sora: You shouldn't call them "ghosts". Sure something seemed a little off but I'm sure they're still my friends

another fantastic idea :3

I've heard that nightmares can be used as an effective tool to become lucid. I must find out exactly how effective it is. My past nightmares have usually been more vivid and memorable than regular dreams, so I guess it could also be used as tool to increase dream recall faster than using normal dreams. Am I right on that?

Stress doesen't necessarily do it.

I got a stress disorder from depression, and I'm constantly stressed, and thinking about everything that can go wrong. Haven't had nightmares like forever.

Except 15 min ago, but that came from a TV-show where a nuclear bomb fell.

However, I play a lot of games. And games I play 2+ hours a day usually become the theme of all the dreams that night.

I'd say if you are like me, watch horror movies, shows. Catch up on walking dead or something. Or if you're into games, try Amnesia: The Dark Descent if you haven't.

Do it like lucid dreams, before going to sleep tell yourself that you will have a nightmare or something.

That is probably the best ya got.

Think of all the times you ever been afraid in your life. Traumatic events, minor/major phobias, emergency situations. They amplify inside your dream world.
