I know it's impossible but when your dreaming your incredibly stupid to not realize these things. But for some reason when you reality check you know instantly if it works im dreaming, if it don't im awake. I know this because just to days ago i had a dream where i was running super fast to the point where it looked like time was slowing down, and i was doing reality checks just 10 days ago, and yet i still didn't notice that i was dreaming even tho i was running at super human speeds. But yet when i did a reality check some how that let me know instantly as if i didn't have to think about it. So why is that, why don't you notice when your dreaming when these impossible things happen, but yet a simple reality check gives you the answer.
Sometimes it takes the mind a few tries to pick up on those things. Although practicing reality checks in real life, and perhaps imaging you are in a dream while counting how many dream signs there are on TV or in a video game might help you with this.
