If you dream in color, then you probably watched a lot of color TV growing up. According to research from the first half of the 20th century, it has been suggested that most dreams were observed in black and white. However, studies from the 1980s show that more people began to dream in color, with up to 80% reporting that they dreamed in color.
What the studies suggest is that children are affected (or maybe… “programmed“) by the media during early childhood – which further suggests major programming of the child’s dreaming experience via the media. This indicates that during our formative years as children we are very suggestible at that age to visual programming that is retained at different levels of consciousness.
