Freud devoted a long section to typical dreams in The Interpretation of Dreams (1900) these are “dreams which almost everyone has dreamt alike and which we are accustomed to assume must have the same meaning for everyone”. Personality  refers to individual differences in characteristic patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving.
