Comments: After this quizlet had run I discovered that in my own dreams change of personality is more common than I had realized. Usually it's just a swift change of viewpoint without really feeling the characteristics of another personality, but nonetheless doing and acting like another personality. Anyway, the experience is known to quite a few people apparently.

17% Yes, it's somewhat interesting (5)
20% Yes, it's more than somewhat interesting (6)
 
 
Results
Comments: Interestinly enough, half of the people don't know what I'm talking about. The twilight zone is the stage between waking and sleep. You can see images, either abstract or simple impressions but not real dreams. Try paying attention to it the next time you go asleep, it can be interesting indeed.

11% I still am (5)
17% It's in the past now (8)
 
 
Results
Comments: Why are so few people paying attention to their dreams? One of the explanations I had is that there is a social barrier. But for 70% this never seems to have been the problem. I'll have to try other explanations.

6% At least once every 50 dreams (2)
