Dream-related survey findings from two research projects, each with a random postal survey component and a web-based administration of the questionnaire. The first project was an effort to explore the connection of depersonalization and satisfication with life and the out-of-body experience. The second project explored absorption, adult memories of childhood imaginary companions, life satisfaction and exceptional experiences in general. All four studies contained a series of questions on dream recall, type of dreams and frequency of dreaming. This presentation focused on the relationship of the dream variables and other aspects of the survey instruments.
