What kind of sleeper are you?

Gosh! I saw this news article on Yahoo! News and I knew that I have to include it in my blog! The article below talks about what kind of sleeping position you er, well sleep in, reveals your personality.
I belong to the majority first sleeper, the foetus position! But I disagree with the first part of the description! I’m not a woman can! Haha! But for me to sleep in that position, I require a prerequisite, the love of my life for 21 years, my beloved Bolster!
Haha! I’ve also been sleeping in the soldier position lately because that is usually the position I am in when I concuss-ed due to exhaustion from a day’s work. As a result, my mom will nag at me for not switching off the lights and/or computer/tv before turning in, Muahahahha!

No offence to anyone who sleeps in that position, I feel that the log and freefaller sleeping position is quite funny! hahaha :X

Anyway, check out the article from Yahoo! News below. What kind of sleeper are you? Do share with us under the comments section 🙂

Yours Sincerely,
Reuel Eugene.


What kind of sleeper are you?

Ever wondered what your sleeping position says about the kind of person you are? A survey of 1,000 British reveals that the six most common sleeping patterns are indicative of personality types.

Foetus position: A whopping 41% of participants sleep in this curled-up manner. Women are twice as likely to rest like this and it is listed as the most common position. These sleepers are said to have a tough exterior but are still sensitive and may appear to be shy but warm up quickly. 

Log position – If you sleep on your side with both arms down, you are a social, easy-going person who is trusting, sometimes to the point of being gullible. The study showed 15% of people sleep like a log. 

Yearner position – A close third is the side-lying position with both arms out in front of the body, with 13% of partipants sleeping like this. Yearners are noted to be open-minded and still cynical, suspicious, and stubborn about sticking to decisions once they are made. 

Soldier position – These sleepers lie on their backs with arms down and kept close to the body. This 8% study is said to be reserved, quiet, without fuss, and hold themselves and others to a high standard. Soldier sleepers have a higher likelihood for snoring due to the flat-back position, which may not cause them to wake up often but may result in a less restful night’s sleep. 

Freefall position – Those people who lie on their bellies with arms under or wrapped around a pillow with head turned to the side, make up 7% of the population studied. Freefallers are brash, outgoing, and are very uncomfortable with criticism.  

Starfish position – Sleepers who lie on their backs with arms up near their head or the pillow account for 5% of participants. These people are good listeners, helpful, and are uncomfortable being the center of attention. People who sleep in starfish position are more likely to snore and to suffer from a poor night’s sleep more often.
