Though there have been recent studies into sleep positions and personality traits (one commissioned by a hotel chain), I believe things are a little more complex than the results claim. For me – I can go through several sleep positions in one night, especially when I was an insomniac, does this make me a mix of all the personality types? Who knows!
So – for a little bit of fun here are the results!
Sleeping curled up on your side.
Said to show a need to destress by reverting back to a stress free time when in the uterus. The more tightly curled up you are, the more stressed you are. Can be difficult to get to know, but very sociable with family and friends.
Again lying on your side but more open and you have your arms stretched out in front of you, as if ‘yearning’ for something.
Said to show a confident nature, with a hint of suspicion. May take a long time to come to a decision but then will not change their minds.
Lying on your side with your ams and legs in a straight line.
An open and sociable person but can be too trusting with others.
Lying on your back, arms and legs spread.
Listeners bit so they can give advice, often believe themselves to be king or queen in their environment.
Lying on your back, straight legs and arms alongside your body.
Reserved and introverted, don’t like giving things away. They have high standards of themselves and are perfectionists and can be hard on themselves.
Lying on your front, head to one side, normally with legs spread and arms wrapped round a pillow.
A good listener who is open to new ideas. Tends to be someone who stays in the background. Can feel like life is happening around them and they are hanging on for the ride.
Does your sleep position match your personality? Please let me know!
Remember this is just for fun.
