What your Sleeping Style says about You

To sleep perchance to dream—and reveal who you really are.

The six most common sleep positions in a survey conducted with 1000 participants by Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service, found that not only do these positions affect our health—but they’re also linked to specific personality types.


The Freefall

Position: Lying on your stomach with hands up around the pillow and head turned to one side.

Personality: Freefallers are often extroverted and brash people. They appear nervy, but are truly thin-skinned people who take criticism personally.


The Fetus

Position: Curled up on your side. This is the most common sleeping position, adopted by 41 percent of the 1,000 people who took part in Professor Idzikowski’s survey.

Personality: Those who sleep in the fetus are described as tough on the outside, but shy and sensitive at heart. They may take time to warm up to people, but soon relax.


The Log

Position: Lying on your side with both arms down by your side.

Personality: Log sleepers are social, easygoing people. The downside: their tendency to trust anyone—including complete strangers—makes them easy to fool.


The Yearner

Position: On your side with both arms out in front.

Personality: Yearners are open to new things, but also suspicious and cynical. They take a long time to make decisions—weighing pros and cons repeatedly—but once they make a choice, they almost never change their mind or have regrets.


The Soldier

Position: Lying on your back with both arms at your sides.

Personality: Soldier sleepers are generally quiet and reserved. They don’t like to make a big deal out of things, and they set very high standards for themselves and others.


The Starfish

Position: Lying on your back with both arms up.

Personality: Starfish sleepers are described as great listeners and thus good friends. They’re always willing to offer help and generally don’t like being in the limelight.
