I always dream in color. I can't think of one dream that was black and white. Reading these posts is kind of funny, cause whoever came up with the idea that most people dream in black and white, must of been colorblind as someone said.

In fact in some dreams I have the colors are almost more colorful that the real world. I dream in great detail, and in the dreams I often will pay close attention to colors. I dont know why that is, but when I wake up, I will remember thinking in the dream that the grass was more blue/green than green or the sky was multicolored etc.

We, well most of us, percieve reality in colour so why not in one's dreams? I think that it is stranger for people to dream in black and white as our sub-consciousness is creating a reality that is different from the perception that we are acustom to.

People tend to dream in color i would think, i for one do. It makes me wonder though what blind people dream in, shades? And how would they perceive people in their dreams. Hmm wonder if they've ever done a study on it.

How about blind people? What do they experience if they have never seen in the first place? Thats color at nothing...Wow, that could be an interesting thing to look up.

I have always been a lucid dreamer and in color. Most of the time I just let the dream go however it wants to, but if I want something to change I'll change it. If I have a strange dream that I want to understand more I can pick it up the next night. I've also had the deja vue dreams, there is a special quality to them, when the deja vue hits it's almost like I'm back in my dream again.

I definitely dream in color. Even though sometimes everything is ... hmm, how to describe it ... almost faded it out, or the colors are washed out making them not as vibrant as they would normally be in RL. But yes, I also definitely know that I dream in color.

As far as dreaming in color, my dreams are almost always full of brilliant colors. There are those occasional black/white dreams but those I seldom remember the details of.

This is a little off the subject, but it was in color:
One time I was napping and in my dream, I woke up when I heard the phone ring. I sat up and looked right at my husband who was standing at the edge of the bed and told him to tell the person on the phone that I was sleeping and that I would call them back later.

I heard him say almost those exact words immediately afterward. Then I laid back down and went back to sleep.

When I woke up my husband said, "So-and-so called and I told them that I'd have you call them back as soon as you woke up." I looked at him funny and said, "I know, I told you to tell them that!"

He said, "You didn't say a word to me. When I came into the room you didn't even wake up you were sound asleep!" I said, "Of course I woke up." And I described to him exactly what he did when he came into the bedroom.

But in actuality, I was dreaming the actual details that were happening in reality.

How weird is that?

Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? I guess the alarm clock sounding in the dream is along the same lines..

I'm guessing that blind people dream with only the other 4 senses. But thats just a guess. I'll try to look up something about it.

I have always dreamed in colour, at least 100% of the dreams I can remember are in colour
As we probablt have a lot more dreams we don't remember.

I just thought everybody dreams in colour, obviously I am wrong.
I don't know what to think about the comment that creative people dream in colour, and uncreative people dream in black and white though - I am not sure if I would term myself creative or not.
I am very technical, and am a software engineer - though I don't really have an artistic mind.

I definetly dream in color..

I have had "mini series" dreams...

As far as that stimuli filter .. it doesn't work.. I sleep with the TV on.. and all I have to say is DARN INFOMERCIALS

One wierd dream I had was the X-Files.. I was really tired and tried staying up for it but I wound up passing out... when I woke up.. I had dreamed the x-files....

I caught the re-run of the episide and oddly enough it was VERY similiar to the dream.. of course it was exactly what happened.. but what suprised me was the settings and the action.. being similiar to my dream.
