    I've read the opposite - that people often dream in colour, and that dreaming in black and white could be a sign that the person isn't feeling all that well. I don't know how true or false that statement is.

    Myself, I can only remember dreaming in colour.

    What a coincidence that we're on this topic! Last night I had the most vivid dream where I could see and smell everything in vivid detail. I was in a dollhouse with bright blue wallpaper, pink carpet and 60s furniture. I could see the intricate patterns of the lace doilies on the coffee table and the reflection of light off the brown lacquer on the old-fashioned style of the TV and radio. The bright colors stayed with me all day today. Then I was in a buffet-style dining hall and choosing what kind of food to eat, and I could see the juices on the roast ham and the steam of the asparagus in vivid detail.

    I usually don't have such extrasensory dreams.

    60-70% of the time i dream in color. the rest of the time... it's neither color nor black and white. it's hard to describe. sepia, maybe?
    sometimes there is scent. often there is taste.
    dreams have always been weird for me. sometimes i get stuck in them for days and wake up completely exhausted.
    i've never been able to dream lucidly, at least, not to the point where i can manifest my own "reality".

    I was just going to say this... about the sepia. I'm actually convinced that since there's no real visual input, the idea of dreaming in color is a red herring. It's essentially a meaningless question. Your brain may be thinking things are in color (as this is the default perception of the external world), but since your eyes are not seeing, there's no color, no matter what. When you close your eyes and visualize something, is it in color? It's probably a similar experience.

    Oh, also, I think the sepia is what our eyes see when they're closed. At least when there's any light.

    I usually only get black and white + one color per dream if I get to have a color. I had a really vivid dream about five years ago with two colors. A large explosion partially hidden by a distant mountain (nuclear?) which had a brilliant (black and white) flash followed by a dark-bright-red (hard to explain) sphere of light from it's center which faded out as it expanded. Then I ran inside and saw the tv turn to blue fuzz/static and heard it. (strangely enough, I met someone else who had had almost the exact same dream and we had both blogged about it and neither of us had known about the other's dream before we met)

    Am I strange for not being able to answer the question? I don't really know actually. I do have a very good idea of what constitutes a sunset-like scenario and a midnight-like scenario in my dreams though so....I don't know :P

    I don't recall ever having dreamt in black and white. It's always color.
