AbstractThe relationship of dream imaginativeness and dream implausibility to waking creativity and metaphorical ability was examined among 126 undergraduates using two-week dream diaries. A significant relationship was found between scores on the College Vocabulary Test and the Remote Associates Test on the one hand, and report length, implausibility and dream recall frequency on the other. A causal analysis suggested that verbal intelligence, rather than creativity or metaphorical ability, was the factor underlying the correlations.
