    Default How Much Sleep Do You Need?

    I am curious if there is a correlation between sleep needed and personality type.

    I'm an ENTP and can function well with only about 5-6 hours of sleep regularly- when the average is around 8.
    I'm not sure which preferences would relate to sleep needed but most of the people I know who survive with little sleep are NT's.

    i like about 8 or 9...but can do fine on 5 and do it all the time....just not too often in a row.

    I can easily do with only 5-6, and do so regularly. However, I tend to sleep in more anyway when I get the chance (on weekends and such), as even if I don't need it, I enjoy it.

    My sleep patterns are usually somewhat psychotic. I can and do sleep on only 4 or 5 hours of sleep, then come home and crash and have a 2 hour nap. I think my body has a good comfort zone of 8-9 hours of sleep which I usually do get during the course of a day, but not necessarily continuous.

    My sleeping times are much more chaotic which is surprising because I still do get a decent amount of overall sleep.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    I do that sometimes also.

    Usually the regular 6-8 hours of sleep. Unless I stayed up all night getting drunk, then I only need 2-4 hours. If I'm stressed I'll oversleep from 10-15 hours.

    I need around 8 hours of sleep. I can do with 5-6, but after many such nights in a row, I'll become very, very tired (unfortunately, lately I've been sleeping not very much, as I have school very early in the morning).

    Same. Except for getting drunk.
