Lucid dreaming and personality in children/adolescents and adults: The UK library study

Research that has focused on the relationship between the Big Five personality dimensions and lucid dreaming frequency has been restricted to student samples.

The small but significant negative correlation between conscientiousness and lucid dreaming should be followed up by studies relating the Big Five personality factors to the contents of lucid dreams.
