Dreams can offer profound insights into our subconscious, influencing our emotions and decisions in waking life. Understanding these influences can unlock personal growth and emotional clarity. The Mannheim Dream Questionnaire was developed to delve into the complexities of dreams, including their frequency, content and impact.

The "Attitudes Toward Dreams" section of the Mannheim Dream Questionnaire specifically assesses your feelings and beliefs about dreams. It includes 8 carefully crafted items, each used to quantify how strongly you feel about your dreams—such as their importance, their impact on your life and your interest in them.

By understanding your attitude towards dreams, you can gain insights into how they influence your waking thoughts and emotions. This subscale is a valuable tool for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of their own subconscious mind and its manifestations in dreams.
