    I don't have trouble falling asleep, but I have trouble going to bed, because I feel like sleep is a waste of time.

    I'm a night owl, a light sleeper, and I usually have to be positioned a certain way to fall asleep. I also run a white noise machine or fan of some sort, otherwise all the little soundw breaking the silence catch my attention and I can't sleep.

    (I also have my trusty bottle of Restoril/temazapam to knock me out.)

    And no, I don't like sleeping either, I'd rather be awake all the time, too much to see, learn, and think. Sleep is like death of sorts and you never know if you're coming back after the fact.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I can pretty much sleep whenever I want to. Light, noise, and the amount of sleep I've already had usually don't have much of an effect. If I relax and close my eyes, I fall asleep. It's not fail-proof, but it usually works. Being tired sure makes things easier. There's usually two times in the day where I start to nod off if I'm not active enough. (Nap time, and bed time very late at night.)

    Absolutely not. I fall asleep like a rock unless there's something really bugging the shit out of me emotionally.

    Makes a lot of sense to me. Me, I kind of try to reason my way through my feelings. Searching for some logical explanation, to make some sense out of what I'm feeling.

    Otherwise, I have no trouble falling asleep. Usually I sleep through the night too. However, when I'm stressed about school or work, I just CAN'T fall asleep unless I put my thoughts together, find some structure and make a plan of action. When I feel I'm on top of things, then I'm fine.

    Trouble falling asleep means it takes longer then 15 minutes, sometimes much longer.

    No trouble meaning you are capable of falling asleep in under 15 minutes regularly.
    by these standards, I imaging a lot of people have sleep problems, not just NT's.

    Really? Most people I've discussed this with irl, all say they are easy sleepers. Just a few that don't and they are NT's. :P
