I don't have the answer to that but here is what I do know according to Medical News, the average person has around four to six dreams every night. We usually forget most of our dreams pretty fast but every once in a while there is one that sticks around and we're thinking about it all day long.

So, what kind of dreams are the most common? Well, the folks at NewYorkBets.com did an analysis using Google search data from the past year, and they found some interesting results.

They discovered which dreams or nightmares have been the most frequently searched for in the United States over the past year. Guess what? They specifically looked into the dreams of people in New York.

So, if you live in the Empire State and have one of these dreams, I guess that would make you average because these are the things most commonly dreamed about by New Yorkers.

Number One Dream for New Yorkers

The number one dream New Yorkers have is about darkness. 75% of people are dreaming about that, so I'll quote Simon and Garfunkel, "Hello darkness, my old friend."

67% of New Yorkers are having happy dreams, 49% of people are having dreams about speaking a different language, 40% of people in New York are having scary dreams and another 33% of New Yorkers regularly dream about being lost. Do any of these apply to you?

It's pretty interesting to see what goes on in the dreams of other New Yorkers, isn't it? The dream that I have the most often involves me flying in the air but that's a story for another day. If you've got the time, ask me about it some time.

Dreams can be a mysterious and intriguing part of our lives, so it's always interesting to look into their patterns and meanings. Maybe these findings about common types of dreams in New Yorkers will start a conversation at your next get-together.

I know my "flying in the air" dreams have. Sweet dreams my friends!
