    Default Types, How Many Hours Of Sleep are Optimal? Necessary?

    This may have been done before, but I want to see if the supposed 'high energy' versus 'low energy' types are borne out in the hours of sleep they say they need. Not scientific, but interesting...

    So, state your type, how many hours of sleep are optimal, and how many you need to get by on a decent functioning level.

    I'll start: INFJ, 9, 7.

    Also, if you are still young enough to be growing, then state that because it will affect your answers.

    INFJ, between 6-8hrs.
    Used to be able to go on a LOT less, but it's wrecked me over the years. Catches up with you.

    When I'm pressed for time but still need sleep, sleepti.me is a great little site for working out when to wake up in terms of cyclical increments, so I still feel 'rested.'

    ENFP: 8-9 hours is optimal
    5-6 to function

    i need my sleep man.

    EDIT: feeling the need to qualify "functioning". For me, it means not calling off work, but lagging hard, pumping myself with much more caffeine than normal, and staggering around like the undead.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Seems 7 hours is the bare minimum I can get away with nowadays. Used to do it on 6 hours, but not anymore.

    My body and mind function optimally on, and demand, no more and no less, than 8 hrs of sleep.

    I used to grind away with 4-6 during my early-to-mid 20s, but I just can't do it anymore.

    10 is optimal I usually do 9 but I can get away with 7. I've gone almost 2 full nights without sleep, it's not fun.
