ABSTRACT
The present study investigated the relationship between nightmare frequency, nightmare distress and neuroticism. Nightmare frequency was associated with neuroticism; a finding which fits in the general continuity hypothesis of dreaming, i.e.. current waking-life experiences (stress) is incorporated into subsequent dreams. A systematic overestimation of nightmare intensity or nightmare distress of single nightmares of persons with high neuroticism scores have not been found, but other dimensions such as coping with nightmares or seeking professional help might be more pronounced in this group.
