Whether you think dreams are a window to the unconscious or just exercise for the brain, we all dream the same things. Sure the details vary, and we interpret them differently, but studies show themes transcend culture.
A new study set out to see what dreams are the most common and which reoccur (more than three times) the most frequently only to find that dream prevalence and reoccurrence are rarely the same.
Being a child again and being the object of a celebrity's affection (aka, erotomania) are the most common, yet they almost never reoccur. However, dreaming of your teeth falling out or being physically attacked are rare dreams, but those who experience them do so often.
So let's put some dream paranoia to rest once and for all by looking at 10 of the most common reoccurring dreams below.
- School, teachers, and studying
- Searching for a place
- Eating delicious food
- Being chased
- Losing control of a vehicle
- Being physically attacked
- Teeth falling out
- Not being able to find a toilet
Have you had any?
