5. Familiar faces
Do you remember the faces you see in dreams? You may never have wondered, but it’s pretty interesting. These do not emerge randomly or by magic: they are always people and faces that you have seen before (although you may not have even been aware of remembering them). This is based on studies that indicate the areas of the brain with the highest activity rate during deep sleep are also responsible for facial recognition.
Just because you don’t remember dreaming, doesn’t mean you’re not doing it! Chances are you’ve just forgotten, but there’s nothing to worry about. Every night, the average person has several dreams, but the vast majority (a percentage as high as 95%) are unable to remember them. So, appreciate the ones you do remember because, for each one, who knows how many were forgotten!
7. Gender issue
“Men are from Mars, women are from Venus” may be a cliché, but there are differences depending on the gender of the person when it comes to dreaming and the content of these dreams. For example, men tend to have more dreams that highlight fighting, aggressive, or violent themes. Women, on the other hand, experience higher levels of fear of rejection and other more subtle fears.
