When i'm working/studying I sleep about 5-6 hours per night, and somewhat irregularly Then when I have some spare time I can easily sleep for 18 hours straight without any problems. This is the major reason why I don't want to spend my time working for someone else, because it makes my life hell. I want to be able to do what I am supposed to + a little beyond the call of duty, and then have my fucking own time. Working on a fixed 8 hour shift is pretty awful. I can do things in two hours that would take most people an entire day, but it's a short burst of energy. I'd rather work three hours per day accomplishing a lot when I actually do something, get paid for the equivalent of eight hours and then go home. But that's somehow against ESTJ regulation
Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
At my age, I require atleast 10 hours to feel perfectly refreshed, but with getting up at 6 every day, I usually only get about 7 hours. I guess I've gotten used to it, but sleepings is one of my favorite past-times..I'd do it a lot more if time permitted.
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
A few years ago, I could function fine with no sleep at all.
I once went almost three nights without any real sleep, and managed to sit a test afterwards (!)
It didn't go down too well however.
(Guess it's catching up to me in my 'old age'. Can still function without sleep (especially if I'm doing something exciting) but that long a period without it would probably cause some serious hallucinating )
I have no typical 'sleep pattern'. I can function with 'no-food no-sleep' - on adrenaline, so I have to be doing something with others that's sufficiently stimulating. I have weeks when I sleep 13-hour-nights, weeks when I'm lucky if I get four hours and weeks with a combination of the two.
