The World of Dreams


Men dream adventure, women dream real situation. This change is also observed in childhood.

Emotions, desires, sympathies translate into visions of dreams primarily related to sex, age and personality.

Every night in our dreams we go from everyday behaviors to becoming the most fantastic characters. We can change roles, occupations, ages, identities and even sex.

There is nothing wrong with this: "transformation" is the indirect way through which the unconscious transmits fears, insecurities, desires, and fantasies.

* Dreams can be extravagant or mundane. The only important thing is not to take them as they are: after the most straightforward image a second meaning is always hidden and unfortunately the translation is not straightforward except for a limited type of symbols.

* The analysis of thousands of dreams, however, has made it possible to individualize the schemes needed. These "copies" are related primarily to the sex they belong to, the age and personality of the dreamer. Even the most important life events tend to shape the "scenarios" we can experience, with some variation in everyone's dreams.

Masculine and feminine

Relevant sex is the first factor that influences the way you dream. Thus we can share the typical characteristics of women's dreams and others in common with men's dream experiences.

The two different dream worlds are influenced in part by biological characteristics (hormones, neurological and anatomical changes) and in part by a culture typical of one or the other sex (greater sensitivity and greater communicative ability of women; emancipation; the eldest of the family, of the husband ...).

But let's look at the changes in more detail:

Her dreams

The woman is almost always the protagonist of her dreams and hardly dreams of another being or making a basic character of her dreaming fantasies.

* Next to her she sees familiar, family-friendly people. Even when dreaming of a forbidden adventure it is easier for the images to be, for example, her partner, a neighbor ... so not an unknown at all.

* Generally the proportion of men and women in dream fantasies is equivalent. The relations with them are calm and friendly. Only rarely do meetings degenerate into physical strife and aggression.

* One of the most common activities for women to dream about is talking.

* The environment in which the dream takes place is commonly known. It can be a home, or a place we are used to visiting, or a city we usually go to.

* As in reality, in dreams, women are more attentive to features, such as the face, shapes and colors of clothing. Perceive and remember aromas, colors, flavors.

* There are then special moments in which they become even more alert and sensitive, such as during the menstrual cycle, or during pregnancy. Dreams turn out to be more vivid, and their content becomes more detailed.

Women often dream of indoors and water referrals are very common: they can imagine being in a bathtub or in a pool, or seeing water flowing or foaming in a waterfall. The perception of the body itself that it seems to increase or decrease varies.

His dreams

The man dreams more often than women that he changes his personality and transforms into a brave hero, perhaps borrowing the character traits of action movies, the Black Chronicle.

* If the chosen character is very rebellious, he may even choose not to perform in a dream personally and move on to a minor role, leaving the "evil" to act as the protagonist, perhaps lending a friend's appearance or of a brother.

* Other characters that populate men's dreams are few, and for the most part men. The few women present are not necessarily well-known.

Rather, a constant of erotic dreams (more common in men than women) is that of having a partner you've never seen before.

* In dream fantasies, frequent physical encounters and solace with violence are common. The adversaries of the dreamer are often unknown.

* Generally their dream is more populous and richer than that of females, but the awakening male remembers very little detail.

* The action takes place in outer space and in inaccurate places. The most common place they refer to is the workplace (it is often the case that a man dreams of a boss, a colleague, an important or dream treaty referring to money that, though, strangely dreams of finding or collecting small metal money and almost never banknotes.

Erotic fantasies

* The first difference between his and her erotic dreams is that men have unfamiliar dream partners; women, on the contrary, meet real people.

* Men then act for "compensation". In the face of adversity or failure, they are predisposed to dream of reassuring or comforting situations.

* Women, on the contrary, present their concerns more directly. Even dreaming of a betrayal, more than fantasy. in women it is often a signal of a moment of difficulty in the couple's life.

The role of age

Even age plays an important role in the way you dream and the topics of dreams. Usually childhood dreams are shorter and follow a straight line as compared to adulthood, although in themselves the imaginations are often indirect.

* The difference between the dreams of men and those of women also exists in childhood. Boys' dreams are more vivid. with encounters and adventures, while those of the little ones are more peaceful even though the nightmares are more frequent (among the most are: chasing after, falling into the void, losing a loved one).

* In the dreams of young children we often find characters as well as animals: boys usually dream of large animals (bears, wolves, lions) with which to encounter; their peers dream of mammals and smaller animals (especially cats and mice). Both males and females dream of "disgusting" animals like insects and snakes.

* In adolescence, the topics become more mature and dreams become more complex: girls begin to dream of themselves in relation to someone else (a teacher, a girlfriend); while young boys are more often seen alone, in adventurous situations: dreaming of encountering or being attacked.

How valuable are the cases lived

The important events of everyone's life have a great influence on dreams, especially if they are dramatic or bring about great changes in daily habits. Trauma, accidents, deaths, marriages, divorces, and other particularly intense events are typically presented in our dreams.

* One statistic has shown that married people's dreams are quieter and "friendlier" than those who face a separation (which are more filled with nightmares and threatening images).

* After losing a loved one, it often happens that we dream every night for weeks. Even an accident in which we have been the protagonists can take on similar images and present itself as a constant horror.

* In the case of physical ailments, you may dream of a disaster before it manifests itself.

Words to tell

Not all of us dream the same way. Our dreaming imagination can be more or less vivid, exciting, detailed and exciting.

The accuracy of memories is also different: when they wake up they can perfectly remember their dreams, they only remember fragments. That's why the stories are more or less articulate.

* The most commonly used expression when referring to a dream is "at some point." This is because in a dream we lose sense of time and space. For the same motive, the verbs are usually pronounced in the imperfect time ("I was in the car ...") or in the complete act (I had noticed something strange ... ").

* A statistical analysis of the most commonly used terms and expressions for dreaming has revealed that boys and men tend to use more sentences and words to lead to their aggressive or sexual instincts.


* During the menstrual phase, women are more careful and accurate in describing emotions and feelings. This seems to be due to the fact that hormonal variation makes them more sensitive to word expression, and more perceptive to their unconscious feelings.
