    My dreams don't make much sense. I mean, I can see where some of the stuff in my dreams come from -- like, my last dream that I remembered was in a post office in Australia, and just the day before I read that one of my favorite web-authors were from Australia, so I guess that's why I was in Australia... but the rest of the dream, the police officers, the crack, the haircut, didn't really have anything to do with anything, LOL.

    I dream often about losing teeth, but it's never the same dream. My mind likes to come up with fresh nightmares, always. I've never had a recurring dream, ever.

    I've also heard that younger kids tend to dream more/remember more dreams/whatever, but I can't really think that's true... I mean, I used to remember my dreams a lot until I was about five, and then I just stopped until high school started. Now it's like, at least every month I remember something.

    I can only speak for myself, but I dream regularly and I dream wildly.

    That sounds very similar to the way I dream.

    When I remember, it's usually negative. Like, I had an elaborate dream of being in a labor camp. As a child, I constantly had nightmares about driving and fire. Sometimes I still have them...

    But I don't usually remember...

    I remember my dreams very vividly almost every night. I have sets for my dreams that I have saved, and most of my dreams are funny. Last night I dreamt that I was concurrently enrolled in my JC and in Law School, but I didn't know any of my classes, so I was roaming around failing both. The only class that I knew about was a preforming arts class at the Law School. They tend to be random like this.

    Sometimes I have this dream, both during the night and day, that I am watching a city progress centuries in fast motion. I have also had dreams where I fall into places of the past that are amazingly vivid. One time I fell into an old pyramid and I was in the burial tomb, and I looked down into the stream of mercury which looked like the starry sky and I fell into space and I was floating. I have fun with my dreams.

    Whether or not you remember your dreams is not related to type, it's purely physical. Whether or not you care, however, probably is.

    People dream their most vivid dreams during REM sleep. Throughout the night, you cycle every 90 minutes through non-REM sleep (which is broken down into 4 stages) and REM sleep, with the proportion of REM to non-REM sleep increasing as the night goes on. This means that most of your dreaming takes place early morning. People who remember their dreams usually wake up in the middle of REM sleep, or very shortly afterwards. For those who "never dream," try setting your alarm one hour before you would normally wake up. ...uh, but I digress.

    People with strong Fi could possibly remember their dreams for a longer period of time because they may be more likely to analyze it right after waking up (Fi loves symbols and self-exploration, and dreams are a rich source of both) and inadvertently commit it to your waking memory, whereas for most people, the memory fades in a matter of minutes. But that only applies to the subset of people who remember their dreams upon waking.

    i identify with what you said here, maybe i am not as aware of color though. i dream a lot, i am rarely unable to remember my dreams. they always seem loaded with symbolism and significance, but i find that the meaning of the symbolism eludes me. my dreams usually have no connecting threads whatsoever from night to night. symbolism in my dreams is very big for me, i do not care for it much in everyday life but my dreams i feel are overwhelmed with it. i am not aware of symbolism during the dream, only after i wake up.

    in my dreams i am generally on some kind of search or journey. i usually encounter lots of people, but almost never are they people i know. my dreams are melancholy in tone a lot, but not always. i usually have no one on my side, haha, it is just me on a long strange trip. the people i encounter come and go - no one stays around long in my dreams. i butt head with authority a lot in dreams.


    EDITED:

    my feeling side is much more developed in my dreams, i am less of a barren emotionless husk.
    do other thinking types find a thawing of their emotions/feeling in dreams?

    Dream recall is a skill that can be easily developed by focused thought, or better yet, a dream journal.

    I usually remember at least one dream each night, quite often I remember more than one. It of course depends greatly on my sleep patterns as well. Or a lack thereof. Don't really have a pattern.

    I truly believe that most nights I do not dream. Usually if I dream I can tell, but I can't remember the dream. Even rarer is when I remember my dreams.

And does type influence what -kinds- of dreams? For example, maybe people with high Si have a lot of dreams about the past... personally, I dream a lot about my hunches. Maybe a bit of that Ni I'm still developing? I realize there may be another thread about this, but I didn't see any that caught my eye.

    Anyways, what are y'alls thoughts on types and their dreams? Are they even related? What types dream the most? -When- do you dream? What usually triggers them? What do different types dream about? Who has the "weirdest"? Who usually has happy or sad dreams? I'd be interested in any or all input. Dreams have always fascinated me.

    Anyways, I dream almost every night. I've noticed there's no one trigger that causes me to dream a lot in one night... I dream whether sleep-deprived or not. Whether there's a lot on my mind or not... I'm still trying to pinpoint those triggers. I have a lot of symbolism in my dreams. A lot of color. I rarely have nightmares. And I always write the weirder ones down... they only usually have something in common if they were close together.
    There are many other factors that affect how often you dream and how well you remember your dreams that are probably more important. I am planning on starting a thread soon that clears some of this up.

    I bet that SP's and NF's would be the two types to dream the most, if there was any correlation whatsoever.

    Everyone dreams...only some remember. And still others also do so when they are awake... They are called Idealists...
