I know for a fact that I have always dreamed in color. Though I've read a few times we dream in black and white. www.faculty.ucr.edu... Sorry, a linky would have been nice, here is one. I know I've read multiple times people only dream in black and white and can lucidly remember vivid colors in mine.

*confesses*

I dream in color quite often - 97% of the time.

Is this something unusual?

Its hard to say really. I remember my dreams in colour, but I have very limited cognitive abilities when dreaming. I belive I dream in colour when I have the odd Lucid dream though.

i couldn't tell you what my percentile breakdown is, but i remember a few of my dreams being in color, and a a few others in b&w. if lucid dreaming is possible i think dreaming in color is as well.

I only remember dreaming in color. I can't say I've ever remembered dreaming in b&w.

Well colour relates to sight, and light reflecting of stuff - things that we arn't using when we dream (your not using your sight - only your mind). Are we really dreaming in colour? Or are dreams above colour


Edit to add: IMAdamnALIEN I LUCID DREAM! and I usually very much enjoy it, I have a very odd sleep pattern that allows me to realise when I'm in a position to control my dreams - it rocks

I dream in vivid color.

I thought there was nothing special about dreaming in color. The special part is being able to remember that you dreamt in color. Being able to remember your dreams is crucial if you want to control them.

I would be more impressed if people could lucid dream, like me.....

I have only dreamt once in monochrome. I remember the majority of it mainly because I also slapped myself in this dream.

I realized it was b/w and I had the thought that this is a dream, so I slapped myself, I felt a numb on my face like it was asleep, all tingly.


It did cause me to wake up, however I cannot ever recall dreaming in b/w other than this.

I think I dream in color, but can't be for sure

I used to have alot of flying dreams where sometimes I could just up and fly and other times I would struggle alot before I could fly and other times I just couldn't fly at all even though I new I could. But I do remember flying over green tree's and seeing our pool with the blue lining under the water and the blue sky. Maybe I dreamed it black and white but my mind showed me the colors.

i'll be the first to admit that my dream recall has been a bit shabby lately because i havn't kept up on my dream logs, but prepare to be impressed because you're not the only one that can lucid dream...

The reason I even started this thread, is since having the flu, I've had two really weird dreams. Last week vampires chasing me. Last night, a lucid one, sitting in my car, sideways on a road, not knowing how I got there. My mind knew I was dreaming, multiple warning lights on dash when I started car. Drove into a mall to check out car. Went into an office building for why I don't know, came out, and it was like night of the living dead 2007, zombies burbling and pointing and attempting to mess me up. I know, just a dream. But the vivid colors of the clothes on them, etc. was notable. And during the dream, I was able to say ok, this is just too weird, tried to turn it off, and it would come right back. A very few of my dreams have been prophetic.

I've had the flying dreams just as you describe, I also have a gorilla dream - which I kinda link to flying dreams (it is very cool!) basically it starts off I'm jogging and breaking into a run, as I build up speed (always in a familiar location) I start to use my knuckles to pull my self along very fast - I start using walls, posts and all sorts - it almost feels like my feet are flailing behind as I weave through everything in my path - this ranks in my top top lucid dreams.

The last dream i remember properly i was able to fly but for some reason had a car tyre around me =/ Later on in that dream i couldnt fly in the direction i wanted, was a rather strange dream as well, even wrote down the bits I remembered lol

And to answer the OP, i can only recall ever having dreamt in colour, never in black and white. Thats not to say i havent dreamt in b&w as i never remember most of my dreams plus, we may dream in b&w but perceive them to be in colour, i really dunno

I've never seen any respected publication that made any such claims that the majority did not dream in color. That's absurd. Here and there, maybe, but if you see in color, you dream in color, unless your brain should fancy otherwise.

I've been told for many years that we dream in black and white. However, I know of no monitoring equipment capable of projecting or recording dreams. If there was, our movies could get very strange.

I can remember specific hair colors, wood tones, fire images, and other things that require vivid color.

My question is if dreams are actually images that can be black & white or color, or are they just thoughts that cause imagery in our minds like memories do?

I have always dreamed in color.. I dont think I can remeber any dreams Ive had that where just black and white, or void of colors...

Im the kind of person who has such intense dreams, that sometimes my day to day life can be affected by these dreams..

I have a log where I write down all of my dreams..
Ive been doing this since I was about 17 or so..

Dreams to me are very important.. And a great way to get things off our minds when we dream..
Ive been in dreams where Its threw my eyes.. Threw the eyes of others.
Also dreams where its like a video game, or a movie..
Some dreams I am animals.. Some dreams I am plants..

You name it, in my dreams Ive been there... All very cool stuff!

I broke a toe lashing out and kicking the wall during a dream fight once. My Mom woke up and told my Dad to get dressed, back in the 60's . Her Father had just died in PA. She saw a white dove fluttering away, in her dream. And he had done just that, died.

I dream in color. Most of the time my dreams have music too...

I dream in High Definition, baby!


Sometimes, if it's a really bad or cheesy dream, then it's usually in 8mm with an old, dusty and noisy projector!

But in all seriousness... as far as I can remember, the overwhelming majority of my dreams are in color- or at least that's how I remember them. The weird thing is that for a good while now I haven't been dreaming as much as I used to. Of course, in all likelyhood, I am probably still dreaming just as much as before but for some reason I am unable to recall them the morning after.

I'm usually more able to remember my dreams if I lay awake in bed when I wake up in the morning and think. Maybe it's the fact that I haven't had the time or the will to do this for so long that I'm not able to remember dreaming as much.
