    Default What does your sleep position reveal about your personality?

    What does your sleep position reveal about your personality? - Healthy Living on Shine

    Fetus position - A whopping 41% of participants sleep in this curled-up manner. Women are twice as likely to rest like this and it is listed as the most common position. These sleepers are said to have a tough exterior but are still sensitive and may appear to be shy but warm up quickly.

    Log position - If you sleep on your side with both arms down, you are a social, easy-going person who is trusting, sometimes to the point of being gullible. The study showed 15% of people sleep like a log.

    Yearner position - A close third is the side-lying position with both arms out in front of the body, with 13% of partipants sleeping like this. Yearners are noted to be open-minded and still cynical, suspicious, and stubborn about sticking to decisions once they are made.

    Soldier position - These sleepers lie on their backs with arms down and kept close to the body. This 8% study is said to be reserved, quiet, without fuss, and hold themselves and others to a high standard. Soldier sleepers have a higher likelihood for snoring due to the flat-back position, which may not cause them to wake up often but may result in a less restful night's sleep.

    Freefall position - Those people who lie on their bellies with arms under or wrapped around a pillow with head turned to the side, make up 7% of the population studied. Freefallers are brash, outgoing, and are very uncomfortable with criticism.

    Starfish position - Sleepers who lie on their backs with arms up near their head or the pillow account for 5% of participants. These people are good listeners, helpful, and are uncomfortable being the center of attention. People who sleep in starfish position are more likely to snore and to suffer from a poor night's sleep more often.

    I saw that article and the pictures that go with it make me laugh, as I can't even fathom being comfortable in 3 of those positions.

    I almost always fall asleep in the fetal position, but the other ones I like and can sleep for a bit with are Freefall and Half-Starfish (lol... only one arm up, not both).

    I'm a freefall person. LOL.
    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?

    I am a combination of fetus, freefall, soldier, and some sort of sprawling...

    Can we extend this thread Peguy? I would like it to include other necessities for the individual to sleep e.g
    Do you have to sleep on a certain side of the bed/facing a certain direction
    How do you have to have the covers/duvet
    Other factors (noise etc),
    I'm suggesting... but i am not able to interpret, i'd happily give it a go, or someone else could, you possibly

    I have no idea...I want to say I start out freefall but end up a yearner...I'll check tonight.

    GF is definitely a combo between log and freefall. And she's an awful blanket stealer/ bed hog

    I start as a Starfish, then as a Soldier, then I evolve into a half Fetus half Log.

    My personality is just that unique.

    I'm not 100% sure of how I sleep but from what I remember...

    Yearner - I wake up like this if I go to sleep like this or freefall position.
    Soldier - I wake up like this if I go to sleep like this.
    Freefall - I may wake up like this if I go to sleep like this.
    Starfish - I wake up like this if I go to sleep like this or yearner position.

    I go to sleep soldier position about 35% of the time.
    I go to sleep starfish position about 25% of the time.
    I go to sleep freefall positon about 20% of the time.
    I go to sleep yearner position about 20% of the time.

    I never sleep fetus or log positon nor do I wake up in fetus or log position.
