Personality and Adult Perceptions of Childhood Dreams.
Jacka, Brian
This study used adult recall of childhood dreams to test Cann and Donderi's (1986) findings that Jungian intuitives recall more archetypal dreams than do sensate subjects, and that introverts recall more everyday dreams than extraverts. It was hypothesized that since dreams recalled from childhood are relatively high in archetypal content, there should be differences between the perceptions of childhood dreams by adult intuitives and sensate subjects, but no differences between introvert and extravert subjects. Participants were 67 volunteer final-year early childhood teacher-training students, each of whom completed the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator as a personality measure, and a Childhood Dream Questionnaire (CDQ). All subjects but one were female. Scores on the Intuition-Sensation and Introversion-Extraversion dimensions were correlated with CDQ item scores. In accord with the hypotheses, significant correlations were found with respect to Intuition-Sensation scores, and none for the Introversion-Extaversion dimension. (RH)
