The objective of this research was to sort the dreams of examinees who varied along characteristic patterns of ego function and to identify characteristic experiences in the dreams. During this study, we surveyed 128 recurrent dreams, 164 unpleasant dreams and 199 impressive dreams. Five patterns of ego function and dream experience emerged. Dreamers with weak ego function and thin ego boundaries underwent more negative dream experiences. In contrast, those with strong ego function reported very positive dreams.
