6 Sleeping Positions and What They Say About Your Personality


Do you want to know about someone’s true personality? Follow their body language. Moreover, try to catch a glimpse of them when they sleep. You’ll wonder, the body languages speak a lot about human beings through their favorite sleep positions also. Even scientists have accepted this fact after several surveys and assessments.

In an article published by the BBC News informs that Professor Chris Idzikowski, the director of the Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service, had analyzed six common sleeping positions and found that each one is linked to a particular personality type.

Now, why follow a man during his sleep when we can monitor his body language while he is awake? "We are all aware of our body language when we are awake but this is the first time we have been able to see what our subconscious posture says about us. What's interesting is that the profile behind the posture is often very different from what we would expect", quotes Professor Chris Idzikowski.

Let’s now focus on the positions.

1.The Foetus:

The study says that this is the most common sleeping position of all. 41% of people among the 1000 participants adopted this position. Interestingly, mostly women, double the number of men chose to sleep like this.

The position looks like someone is sleeping in the womb with their knees curling up towards the chest.

If you sleep like this, you are a tough one to see from outside but you are very sensitive by heart. Also, you seem shy at the first meet but soon relax and mix up with people. Don’t you?

2.The Log:

Almost 15% of participants who took that survey slept like a log.

This position is formed when you sleep on your side with both your hands down straight by your side.

If you love to sleep like a log, you must be an easy-going, social human being who like social gatherings, and who easily trust the strangers. However, you are innocent and trustworthy.

3.The Yearner:

13% of the total 1000 participants loved to sleep like the yearners. So, this is also a common sleep position.

The yearners sleep on their side with both arms stretched out in front.

It is believed that these sleepers possess an open heart but can be suspicious or cynical. Are you a yearner? Then, you take time to make a decision, but when made, you stick strongly to it. Don’t you?

4.The Soldier:

Almost 8% of people made this position their favorite. So, if you are a soldier by sleep positions, you are a bit different from the others!

This position forms when you lie straight on your back with both your arms pinned to your sides.

If you love to sleep like this, you are quiet and reserved by nature. Most of the times you avoid social gatherings and set a higher standard for yourself. You enjoy your own company and sometimes known as a bit loner. Agreed?

5.The Freefall:

7% of the participants in the survey chose this position as their favorite. So, if you love to sleep this sleep position, you are a bit rare.

These sleepers sleep on their stomach with hands around the pillows and head turned to a side of them.

If you fall into this category, you are a highly sociable creature with an impatient nature.

You are also believed to be nervy and thin-skinned underneath. You don't like criticism or extreme situations. Do you?

6.The Starfish:

Only 5% of people in that study declared this position as their own. Hence, the least popular sleeping style is this.

They love to sleep on their back with all legs and hands stretched out.

Do you love to sleep like a starfish? Oh, you must be open-minded. You are also believed to be a good listener and proven to be a great friend. However, you don’t bother to catch the limelight. Do you?

Now, it’s your turn. Compare your personality with the sketch we gave you. Also, observe people and share with us if you agree with this or not!
