Other researchers took a sociological approach to dreams, meticulously cataloging their content: women dream of men more than men dream of women; black people are more likely to be physically damaged in their dreams than white people; 80 percent of adult dreams have a negative component—their hair looks bad or they can’t find their keys or their kid won’t stop crying—and after ninth grade, children’s dreams become significantly more aggressive.
Interesting article on the state of dream research in opposition to Freud. Lots of interesting stuff I didn't know. Also an interesting passage about how one of the leading men in the field had a stroke which prevented him from dreaming for an entire month, throughout which he hallucinated vividly.
