    How to form sentences with "feel like"?

    Are there any differences between the following sentences:

    1- I feel like I am a teacher.
    (and)
    I feel like a teacher.

    2- I feel like I have made a mistake.
    (and)
    I feel like having made a mistake.

    3- I feel like I am eating.
    (and)
    I feel like eating.

    I think you have been on the forum long enough to know that we don't start a question with "How to" as you did in your title. What should it have said?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'll address this one. The first means that, although you are not in fact eating, you're experiencing the sensations of eating. It's hard to imagine a context in which anyone would say this.

    The second means you're hungry, because to feel like doing something means to have a desire to do it.
    I am not a teacher.

    How should I form sentences with "feel like"?

    1. The first one means you think of yourself as a teacher. The second one means the same thing.
    2. The first one means you think you made a mistake. What the second one means is anybody's guess.
