The Way You Fall Asleep Can Give Clues to Your Personality

According to this website, the position you fall asleep can give clues to your personality.


· The Foetus: Those who curl up in the foetus position are described as tough on the outside but sensitive at heart. They may be shy when they first meet somebody, but soon relax.

This is the most common sleeping position, adopted by 41% of the 1,000 people who took part in the survey. More than twice as many women as men tend to adopt this position.

· Log (15%): Lying on your side with both arms down by your side. These sleepers are easy going, social people who like being part of the in-crowd, and who are trusting of strangers. However, they may be gullible.

· The Yearner (13%): People who sleep on their side with both arms out in front are said to have an open nature, but can be suspicious, cynical. They are slow to make up their minds, but once they have taken a decision, they are unlikely ever to change it.

· Soldier (8%): Lying on your back with both arms pinned to your sides. People who sleep in this position are generally quiet and reserved. They don't like a fuss, but set themselves and others high standards.

· Freefall (7%): Lying on your front with your hands around the pillow, and your head turned to one side. Often gregarious and brash people, but can be nervy and thin-skinned underneath, and don't like criticism, or extreme situations.

· Starfish (5%): Lying on your back with both arms up around the pillow. These sleepers make good friends because they are always ready to listen to others, and offer help when needed. They generally don't like to be the centre of attention.

The website gives diagrams of each of the sleeping positions.

I actually fall asleep in three different positions, the foetus, the yearner and the freefaller.

I sleep in the Foetus, Yearner, and Free Faller.
But this dosn't label my personality correctly.

what happens if you sleep in many different positions threw out the night, does that make you bi-polar

Well I sleep "freefall" kinda sorta...

But that doesn't sound like me very much. :shk:

I fall asleep in the foetus, which creepily is accurate to who I am. I wake up in either 'freefall' or 'ouch, it seems as if I bashed my head on they way down to the floor.

I usually either fall asleep in either the foetus position or the recovery position, except im laying on my chest, not my side.

What if you sleep in the nude on your stomach without any blankets?

Very interesting find!

I am definetly a yearner. I am more comfortable on my right side with my arms around the pillow in front. I am thorough when it comes to making up my mind, and it's almost impossible to make me change it once done.

It does say what position you "fall asleep" in, not what position you end up with upon waking nor during sleep.

I'm a mix of 'The Foetus' and 'The Yearner', and I'd say thats pretty spot on with me. Saying that, I always take these with a pinch of salt...

I've rarely ever been able to fall asleep on my back. Lately I've been sleeping on my stomach only because of shoulder pain. Normally I'm
The Yearner and Freefall.

I am definitely the Yearner. I cannot sleep any other way. I could never fall asleep on my back.

I have no personality!
