What your sleeping position reveals about your personality

How do you like to sleep at night?

Are you a light sleeper?  Sleep like a log?  Toss and turn around a lot?

Web Watch knows one couple who absolutely can’t sleep in the same bed, and purposefully have two twin beds in their master bedroom because each spouse’s sleeping style totally conflicts with the other’s.

That’s the premise behind the study that hotel chain PREMIER INN set out to find: the BODY POSITION YOU SLEEP IN IS A PREDICTOR OF YOUR MOOD OR PERSONALITY.

They identified what they called the Most Popular Sleeping Positions, and then determined what personality traits go with each position:

  • The most popular position was FETAL.  The higher your knees, the more internal comfort you feel.  They tend to be worriers.
  • YEARNERSwant to achieve more from life, and often are eager to face the next day when waking up
  • THE LOG tend to be more rigid thinkers, stubborn.
  • FREEFALLING sleepers feel like they’re not in control of their lives
