The manifest content of self-reported lucid versus non-lucid dreams
A major research interest of mine has been in the systematic content analysis of the lucid dream, and probably stems from my own experiences with this dream. This work started with my dissertation in the mid-70's and has continued. To date the majority of my work involves asking people to evaluate their own dreams. For instance I might ask, 'To what extent is the dream you just had recallable?' They are then asked to evaluate their dream experiences along a likart-type scale. This is a well accepted procedure in the personality literature in terms of the self evaluation of internal experience. We are fairly accurate judges of our own internal experiences.
