    I think I'd do best with 7-8 hours, but I rarely (if ever) get that much. Probably more like 6 on average - which means that good nights are okay, but after a "bad" night, I really drag.

    I probably only need 4 hours, but I want 10 hours.

    I NEED 8 to 10 hours. I can function on 6 or 7 for like a day or maybe two, but if I do it for too many days in a row, it's not a good thing. I really need sleep.

    I usually get 7 hours. Sleeping on my own, I get 9-10 hours. How much do I need? Temporarily, 5+ hours. Routinely, 8 hours is a good compromise.

    I am curious why anyone would want more sleep than they needed to feel refreshed and restored to normal function. I mean there are so many much better things than sleeping to be done. I am sorry if this question to invasive, I am just really curious.

    I function best with 430 minutes of sleep.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    not for me, i'm afraid. the way my life is, i'd like to sleep forever and dream about being somewhere else.

    6 in general. Make no mistake, when I have the time I can sleep 12 just as easily.

    I am wondering if you need to be phlegmatic to be actually able to sleep 12-15 hours straight. If I watch my INFJ, I am happy if she sleeps 6 hours straight on weekends
