Very Cool Psychological Truths About Your Dreams

Have you ever tried to analyze your own dreams? It’s not uncommon. When you wake up from a vivid or emotional dream, you might try to figure out what it is your subconscious was trying to tell you. The message might be completely clear–like when you have a terrible dream about work when your work anxiety reaches an all-time high. Is it time to apply for a new job, or is there another way to manage your work anxiety?

But some dreams aren’t so simple. You could spend all day trying to figure out why you dreamed about riding a unicycle to the sister you don’t even have’s baby shower and come up with zilch, nada, nothing! Your dreams don’t always have a deeper meaning, but watch this video and learn 14 psychological facts about your dreams.

The International Journal of Dream Research published a study on typical dreams. Here are the top 5 dreams according to researchers:

Being chased or pursued but not injured
Schools, teachers, or studying
Trying repeatedly to do something
Being physically attacked

Even though our dreams might be unique, these common themes run through them. Some people have recurring dreams, others never remember their dreams at all, and still others are capable of lucid dreaming where they can control the content of their dreams. It’s pretty amazing when you think about it!
