This is what blind people experience when they dream

Other senses

In general, blind people experience other sensory sensations more strongly than visual ones, irrespective of whether they have been blind since birth or not. Research shows that touch, smell and taste play a greater role in the dreams of blind people. It is actually a reflection of their life when they are awake. During the day, blind people experience taste, smell and touch more intensely than people who can see.


The dreams of people who are blind are not very different when it comes to certain themes, compared with dreams of people who have vision. The only notable difference is that blind people experience aggression less often in their dreams.
