Only 5% of people dream in color. Just read this.

I don't think it's true, certainly everyone (or atleast more than 5 percent) dream in color!

Actually, I read that only 12% dream in black and white. This is probably much closer to the truth. I dream in color, just to say.

Yeah I thought the black and white dreams were rare. Perhaps those who do have been told that all dreams are in black and white and so they do, for that one reason.
Since dreams mimic our waking perceptions, black and white dreams don't make that much sense.

I find that my dreams are neither in 'colour' nor 'black & white'. What I believe they mean by having dreams in 'colour' is that you can recall specifically seeing objects/people/places in colour (seems obvious I know.. but wait.. there's more tounge1) And by 'black & white' they mean that you don't recall any specific colours, only the events, people and places that took place.
Actually, the words "colour" and "black & white" are quite misleading when used in the 'dreaming' context.

um... did that make sense?
BTW just my thoughts wink

what a load of rubbish! Those researchers probably never dream themselves! If I told myself often enough I would be blue in my dreams then yes, I probably would be. Dreams are such a great creation of our minds and souls and they are so unique to the individual, that's what makes them so amazing! I think those dream researchers need to get out more to check their 'results' and dream more themselves!

Check - Colour
Shatterspike1 - Colour
bodhibay - Colour
krakatoa - Colour (guessing by your post)
Snape - Is weird or broken
Tundra - Colour (guessing by your post)
Mohegan - Colour

Wow... we must all be in that special 5% then. Not one person here so far seems to dream in black and white. I think that is myth busted.




Oh... Mohegan's Dad - Black and White. Zomg they exists!

EVERYONE dreams in color, it's simply a question wheather you brain can recall this. Some people can recall details as colors, some can't. This could also be a question of vividity.

yeh I agree with this , I don't have that great a recall I can remember what happened but not too much detail so the people who answered the researchers study must have taken their not too vivid dream as black and white because their dreams are not detailed enough to see(or remember the) colours.

How interesting. Just yesterday, one of the polls on my Wii's Everybody Votes Channel asked whether you dreamt in color or not.

I dream in color, but my parents dream in black&white.

For what I thought was going to be a post that irritated me, I'm actually now finding it interesting! (Sepia eh? Very posh!)
Mind you, i do still think Dream Researchers DO need to get their facts right... I mean, that's their job isnt it? neutral
