Carl Jung studied under Freud but soon decided his own ideas differed from Freud's to the extent that he needed to go in his own direction. He agreed with the psychological origin of dreams, but rather than saying that dreams originated from our primal needs and repressed wishes, he felt that dreams allowed us to reflect on our waking selves and solve our problems or think through issues.
In the 1970s, Hobson and McCarley did an experiment that suggested the origins of dreams are merely random electrical impulses firing from the brain stem. The researchers managed to track dreamer's brainwave activity using an EEG machine, and create a predictable mathematical model for this physiological process. According to their findings, dreaming is a bodily process - not a mental one.
ORIGIN:DREAM | Live your Dream. Life is Precious.
Dream interpretation can be a result of subjective ideas and experiences. One study found that most people believe that "their dreams reveal meaningful hidden truths". In one study conducted in the United States, South Korea and India, they found that 74% of Indians, 65% of South Koreans and 56% of Americans believed their dream content provided them with meaningful insight into their unconscious beliefs and desires. This Freudian view of dreaming was endorsed significantly more than theories of dreaming than attribute dream content to memory consolidation, problem-solving, or random brain activity.
