Well I had a dream once that I dyed my hair blone. I am guessing that in order to know that it was blonde, I must have been dreaming in color. I don't know why anyone would be dreaming in Black and White anyway? We don't see things in black and white, so why would we suddenly shift to black and white when dreaming?

I actually do dream in black and white. I think i have rarely seen my dreams in color, so it is interesting to me to see so many people actually do dream in color. This makes me want to pay more attention to my dreams!

Honestly, I can't remember either. I think I must, because the dreams seem so real that I don't know I'm dreaming, so I imagine they'd look like real life. But, maybe when I'm dreaming, black and white does seem like real life, so I wouldn't know the difference. Funny, I can remember lots of details about my dreams, but whether they're in color or not I don't know.

Isn't it funny how all of a sudden we cant remember if our dreams are in color or not? I think we all should go to bed tonight concentrating on what are dreams look like... then come back tomorrow and tell everyone what we saw..Should be interesting!

I usually dream in vivid colour but I have had black and white dreams too. I find that I remember dreams that I awake from early in the morning. If I turn over and go back to sleep, I remember those ones too. If you want to remember your dreams, tell yourself that you will be able to remember them, before you go to sleep.

It must be awsome to dream in real vived color! It's very rare if i remember my dream so i am going to try your technique and keep telling myself that i WILL remember it... We'll see how it goes!

I have never had a black and white dream. Depending on the dream the colours are more or less vivid, but there's always colour. I'm not colorblind, so I suppose the images that my brain shows to me when I'm sleeping are a reflect of what I see when I'm conscious I think all of people who I have talked to about this topic see their dreams in colour, so I suppose it might be something pretty common.

Yes, I have dreamt in color. Many people do, but sometimes we dream in black and white or even one color. Often the color (or lack of color) we dream in has something to do with the message the dream is trying to get across. For example, red could symbolize anger.

I think usually my dreams are in color, but I think that a couple of times it happened that I dreamed in black and white. Of all the dreams that I could remember when I woke up, I now don't remember all of them, so I can't say for sure. But I do think that I've had dreams in both color and black and white.

Yes i dream in colour. I dont remember ever havong a black and white dream. I think its amazing that you do? maybe you have over thought the subject and infact do dream in colour lol and are not just remember ing the colours because you already know they are their. I think this is a great discussion, dreams are of huge interest to me and i am always curious about what other people have to say about them as they can be interpreted in so many different ways.

I am beginning to think you are absolutely right about me over thinking this subject becuase since everyone is saying they dream in colour i MUST do the same, right? I just dont think i ever remember my dreams to really know if i do or not. I just dont really ever remember seeing vivid colours. I suppose since i already know what things look like thats what they would show up in my dream as... confused!..lol

Lol.. As far as i know i am not aware of the fact that i have seen dreams in black and white so i can't be sure that i have seen dreams in black and white either. You make me wonder now.. ha ha. The next time i get a dream, i will try to recall what i have seen.

I think I dream in color although I'm not sure. I'm trying to remember some dreams that I've had and I just can't speculate if they really are. When I think about it, it's just too blurry and old so I can't say I'm a hundred percent sure about it.
