10. Blind People Dream
We see faces and objects in our dreams. But those who are blind by birth know nothing about images and colors. Yet, they see auditory dreams. They listen sound, recognize odor, and feel vibrations in their dreams. Those who become blind later in life, though, see images. Moreover, a Danish study shows that blind people have more nightmares than sighted people .
9. We Forget 90% of Our Dreams
We spend nearly one-third of our life asleep, and unfortunately we couldn't remember most of it. About 95% of our dreams forgotten as we gets out of bed. Though we most likely to remember our dreams if awakened out of REM sleep as compared to full night sleep, but that doesn't explain the whole story. A study in the Journal of Adolescent health in 2011 showed that adolescent girls were more likely to remember dreams as compared to their male counterparts.
8. We only dream of what we know
We see strange faces in our dreams. About 48% of people in our dream are unknown to us. But are they really strange and our brain is creating those faces? No, they are real faces and we've seen those faces somewhere in our life. May be the man, who were trying to kill you in your last dream, met you in grocery store when you were a child.
7. Few people dream in black and white
Though most of us see dreams in color, but there are some percentage of people who claims that they dream without colors. They see dreams in black and white. When they have been asked, right after awakened from dream, to select color from a chart, they frequently selected soft pastel. A 2008 study at University of Dundee found that people who only exposed to black and white television in childhood are more likely to see dreams in black and white.
6. Lucid dreams
Imagine you decide where to go, whom to meet, and what to do in your dreams. For some people this imagination is possible and they do it all the time. There is a whole community of people who claims that they have mastery in dreaming, and have abilities to control their dreams completely. They use different techniques to learn controlling their dreams and can do unbelievable things like flying, passing through walls, traveling to different dimensions and even back in time. They are lucid dreamers.
