Men and Women, and How They Dream

Several studies and surveys have found that men and women have different dreams.

Tapping into the dreams of the opposite sex may help us to understand how they really tick.

Dreams can provide us with a lot of insight into the inner workings of the mind, heart and soul, the Huffington Post reported.

For instance, women may have a tendency to dream of emotions, relationships, and family members. In contrast, men may have a tendency to dream of violence, strangers, cars, and sex with unknown partners.

Not only is the content of our dreams different, but how we perceive and regard our dreams varies as well.

Women tend to recall more details of their dreams and regard them as more important, on average, than most men might. Women are also more likely to share, record, and discuss their dreams with others.

Additionally, women are more likely to define a dream as being a nightmare and are more likely than men to seek out dream interpretation and/or use a dream dictionary to help them to understand the meaning of their dreams.

Although men are sometimes more likely to dream of physical aggression, women are often more likely to dream of verbal aggression.

Research has also indicated that women dream of work more often now than in previous years - undoubtedly a reflection of the times.

Both men and women dream of work; however, men tend to dream of success or monotony, while women tend to dream of the challenges of balancing home and work, as well as emotional expression within the workplace.
