A dream is not just a series of random images or thoughts that you see at night. A dream can say a lot about your personality and your life. A standard dream lasts an average of 20 minutes and a person can have more than 2 dreams in one night. Most people have little or sometimes no memory of their dreams. People do not remember most of their dreams because the part of their brain that helps in retaining things (memory) is inactive when we dream. These dreams are most commonly black and white and deal with people you have already seen.The brain cannot show new faces. The unfamiliar faces we see in our dreams are of people we see on the street or a cab driver. Various psychologists have extensively analyzed dreams that people have and these dreams happen to say a lot about the concerned people and their emotional status. A dream is a way the inner self communicates with us. It is sometimes on outlet for suppressed emotions and sometimes a reflection of our personalities. The dreams are different when one is stressed or trying to cope with a difficult situation and they are different when we are happy. We may see a dream so as to cope with an inner turmoil that we are over selves not aware of or we may see compensating dreams. 10 of the most common dreams people see are listed below.
