Here’s another opportunity to participate in dream research.
Carey Morewedge of Carnegie Mellon University and Michael Norton of Harvard are conducting a short survey on dreams and memory. I took it in less than 10 minutes. The results will be reported in the New York Times, thanks to dream-enthusiast and journalist John Tierney.
By the way, these are the same researchers who recently released a study about how dreamers are more likely to make meaning from a dream if it is a message they want to hear.
I covered that piece recently, highlighting the skepticism of dream interpretation in modern culture. Skepticism is good, but understanding the cultural context of dream interpretation makes for better informed skepticism. So let’s help these researchers take the temperature of modern dream interpretation as it is practiced in everyday situations.
