I just recently found out that people have colour in their dreams... Is it just me, or are there any other people that only dream in black and white? I find it quite weird...

My dreams are always in colour I don't think I have had any in black and white. I suppose it is because life is in colour and you are just clearing out your brain of lots of rubbish when you dream

I was reading an article a few hours ago and it said that if you try noticing the colours of objects around you, you have more colourful dreams, although its not really proven, its just an idea...

I definitely dream in colour but I read somewhere that the majority of people usually dream in black and white. I don't know the reason for it, or why some people should dream differently to others. I always thought it strange that artists could draw in black and white in the centuries before photography was invented. Maybe this explains it. They were drawing things in the way they saw them in their dreams.

I sometimes dream in black and white but most of the times I dream in color. When you do dream in color it is good to go to a dream website that will explain the significance of the colors . Animals and object salso have symbols of your subconscious.. Dreams represent our subconscious fears, or projections. The less you dream, the clearer the subconscious.. If we did not dream to unload the subconscious, we would be a mess!! Flamenca

I think that I read a study that women dream more in color because of our right brain being more active .. Nothing wrong with black and white, some of the best photos in the world are in black and white..! Flamenca

I have both. I have some dreams that are in full color but I have found that most of my nightmares are in black and white. This sucks because the lack of color some how makes the dream even more creepy.

I know what you mean... Its funny though, I read an article about it just now that said if you notice the colours of things in everyday life you have better chances of having colourful dreams... I will try that today and hope to see colours tongiht!! :)

I dream in colour myself and some of them feel so real at times! I guess it's a form of lucid dreaming. Anyway, never really crossed my mind if people dream in colour or black and white! I find this is really interesting. I think I may do a little bit of Googling to look for some information on this.

I felt the same way about dreaming but it was the opposite, I thouht that everyone dreams in black and white, but then I made a comment to a friend about a black and white dream and they had no clue what I was talking about :) Thats when I realised people have coloured dreams as wel...

I never really paid it much attention, but I dream in color. I think I always have. I can't think of a dream where it was in black and white. And most of my dreams are very realistic.

I feel like they are really realistic too, but I can't think of a time where I've actually seen the colours...

I've always dreamt in colour. I find it weird that some people only dream in black and white. I don't really remember my dreams that well but I'm sure they are always in colour. But thinking about it, it is possible that I can only remember the ones that are in colour. What do you think? Maybe you only remember the ones that are in black and white but you have some in colour as well.

I see what you mean... I don't know... I can imagine in colour, or daydream in colour, but when it comes to dreams when I am asleep its always been black and white... Mabye I should see a doctor :) hehe

I've always dreamed in color. I was really surprised when I first learned that some people dream in black and white.
