25 Facts About Dreams That Won’t Put You To Sleep
20. Dreaming in the Dark
Visually impaired people dream too. Those who lost their sight later in life can see visual images in their dreams. However, dreams don’t have to be visual. Blind people who don’t dream visually can experience dreams through sound, smell, and touch.
15. Human Nature
Dreams of unpreparedness, flying, falling, and public humiliation arise from common human anxieties and seem to transcend cultural and socio-economic boundaries.
10. It’s a Man’s World
Around 70 percent of the characters in men’s dream are other men, whereas a fairly equal amount of men and women appear in women’s dreams.
5. Childhood Dreams
Children tend to have shorter dreams than adults and as many as 40 percent of them are nightmares. Scientists believe this is because dreams act as a coping mechanism.
