On Social Interactions through the Reported Dreams of Japanese Students by the Hall and van de Castle Scales.
Kato, Toyohiko
This paper presents research on dreams of college male and female students during a 10-year interval. In Japan, there have been a number of studies on dreams, but there has been no study of dreams using the Hall-Van de Castle Scales. For this reason, a comparable study was conducted between dreams collected in 1986/7 and 1996/7. It questioned whether the content of dreams had changed in that period and whether there were differences reported by either sex. Characteristics in social interaction, aggressiveness, friendliness, and sexual interactions in dreams were collected and compared. There were some changes noted in correlation of item analysis scales. Differences were seen in relation to aggressiveness and friendly actions with male and female characters, and familiar and unfamiliar characters. Differences were not only compared between of male and females characters, there were also comparisons of social interactions and chronology. From the viewpoint of a dynamic analysis of dreams, correlations of items were examined by the Pearson's correlation coefficient. (JDM)
