Do you dream in black and white?

Asked by DrasticDreamer (23976points) October 29th, 2008

I’ve heard, many places, that it’s typical to dream in black and white, which absolutely fascinates me. I have, not once in my life, ever dreamed in black and white. I wish I could do it once, just to see what it’s like.

I dream in color.

I dream in HD.

Seriously though. Technically, I suppose, I do both.
Though really, it’s more that I have dreams where colour
does not play a large part or register in my memory as much.
Whereas other times, colour plays a significant role.

I dream specifically in these colors. I like to keep it simple. :o)

Black & White dreams are like a color dream, but everything is in shades of gray just like on video. A person who only dreams in B&W pays no attention to enjoying the color of things during waking hours. A person who dreams in color has a good aesthetic sense & is an artist. You do not want to dream in B&W. It’s like nightime all the time. I dream in both B&W and color. I only dream in B&W when I’m dreaming of flying away from vampires at night.

Bluefreedom, google the “Real Color Wheel”. All artists have been lied to all these years. Green is not the opposite of red anymore.

I dream in brilliant, vibrant color, but I usually have lucid dreams. I’d be interested to find out if it’s possible to have b&w lucid dreams.

I’ve no idea what I’m dreaming, how I dream (is it like watching TV? Do I take part in it?), nor which colour. I’d love to be a lucid dreamer ;-)

@psyla. Okay, I stand corrected. I really dream in these colors right there. :o)

I dream in technicolor, and can remember every detail. Sometimes I know I’m dreaming, and sometimes not. Sometimes my dreams are like watching a very intense movie. Sometimes I dream of something and then it actually happens later. These dreams are different than the others – the details seem to jump out at me, so when it happens in real life, I start getting that wierd feeling as soon as I start recognizing those details.

A study was done and found that people switched from black and white dreams to color dreams when t.v. became widely distributed and available in color. I think this was published recently in Newsweek.

I dream in both.

DrasticDreamer's avatar

I at least want to see what it’s like. I always dream in color. Just once – to dream in black and white would be very surreal for me.

I dream in color, often times in “acid vision” and everything is brighter and more vibrate than normal everyday life.
