Forgas. On the psychopathology of everyday life specifically, see the work of the same name by Sigmund Freud, and William Barrett’s book entitled Irrational Man.
Results from a A U.S. nationwide survey on nightmares and worries.
A nationwide online survey of Amazon Mechanical Turk workers was conducted October 15th-19th, 2019. We asked participants their age, gender, and state of residence, and then asked them to tell us about their most recent nightmare, in their own words over the course of 2-3 sentences. We then asked them to explain—again, over 2-3 sentences of their own words—what most worries them in everyday life. For both of these questions, in turn, we asked them to rate the impact of their nightmare and worries on their everyday lives.
