Psychology Facts about Dreams


You forget 90% of your dreams.

Within the first 5 minutes when you wake up you forget half of your dreams. 5 minutes later you have already forgotten 90%.

The blind people also dream

Even blind people from birth can see pictures, colors in dreams.  People who were born unable to see do not see images but have dreams in the same way where their other senses are involved with sounds, smells or emotions.  

In our dreams we only see faces that we know

Our minds do not invent faces.In our dreams, we mostly see the faces of those whom we have seen in our lives.Mostly we forget those faces. We have seen hundreds of thousands of faces in life, so we have endless characters stored in memory that our brain can use in our dreams

Dreams are symbolic

If you dream about a particular topic, your dream often has nothing to do with it. Dreams speak in a symbolic language.

Animals also dream

Studies done on different animals show that they all have the same brain waves as humans when dreaming. Observe a sleeping dog and sometimes it will move its paws as if it were running and it will make some sound like it is chasing something in its sleep.


Psychology Facts about Dreams

Paralysis of the body

The REM (Rapid eye movement - REM) phase in dreams is a normal stage of sleep characterized by rapid movement of the eyes. The REM phase in adult humans commonly occupies 20 to 25% of total sleep (about 90 or 120 minutes).
During the REM stage, the body is paralyzed by a brain mechanism to prevent the movement that we could make when dreaming. This paralysis can occur at any time in sleep before the brain is fully "awakened."

Women and men dream differently

About 70% of the characters a man dreams of are other men. Instead, a woman's dream usually contains an equal number of men and women. Also, men generally dream of more aggressive emotions in their dreams.

Dreams of the future

Results of several studies done on large numbers of people indicate that
between 18% and 38% have experienced at least one dream of something that happened to them in the future. The percentage of people who believe they can dream of something that happens to them in the future is even higher, reaching percentages between 63% and 98%.

If you snore, you can't dream

Although no study was found to demonstrate this in many places on the Internet, it is said that if you are snoring you cannot be dreaming

You can experience an orgasm while you dream

It is not only possible to dream that you have relationships in your dreams but you can also feel an orgasm as real as in real life. The sensation can be as pleasant and strong as those experienced when you are not dreaming.
