Subjunctive with 2 different subjects

Is it possible to use subjunctive to say things such as; J'ai peur que je sois stupide Ou Elle souhaite qu'elle ait eu rainson Or is it ONLY if there are two, distinctly different subjects?

Bonjour Connor, You can only use the subjunctive with two different subjects. Otherwise, you just use the infinitive: J'ai peur d'être stupide.
