8 Interesting Facts about Dreams

Dreaming is one of the most mysterious and interesting experiences in our lives.

But what do we actually know about dreams?

1. You Forget 90% of Your Dreams

Within 5 minutes of waking you forget half of your dream.
2. Blind People also Dream

People who became blind after birth can see images in their dreams. People who are born blind do not see any images, but have dreams equally vivid involving their other senses of sound, smell, touch and emotion.

3. Everybody Dreams

Every human being dreams (except in cases of extreme psychological disorder). If you think you are not dreaming – you just forget your dreams.
4. In Our Dreams We Only See Faces That We already Know

Our mind is not inventing faces – in our dreams we see real faces of real people that we have seen during our life but may not know or remember. We have all seen hundreds of thousands of faces throughout our lives, so we have an endless supply of characters for our brain to utilize during our dreams.

5. Emotions

The most common emotion experienced in dreams is anxiety. Negative emotions are more common than positive ones.

6. You can have four to seven dreams in one night.

On average you can dream from one or two hours every night.

7. Men and Women Dream Differently

Men tend to dream more about other men. Around 70% of the characters in a man's dream are other men. On the other hand, a woman's dream contains almost an equal number of men and women. Aside from that, men generally have more aggressive emotions in their dreams than female.
8. If you are snoring, then you cannot be dreaming.
