What is it about?
An article about research into the connection between personality and nightmares. Using a well known model of personality (NEO-FFI-30). We looked for associations between this model and frequencies of nightmares (nightmare frequency), as well as how distressing they are experienced (nightmare distress). The article also includes a instrument for measuring coping strategies for nightmares experiences, and how this relates to both nightmare distress/frequency.
