What does your sleeping position say about you ?


In recent months several news organizations including the Daily Mail, the Telegraph and Fox News have cited research that links sleeping positions and psychological characteristics.

A recent study conducted by Dr. Chris Idzikowski director of the Edinburgh Sleep Centre and author of Learn to Sleep Well: A Practical Guide to Getting a Good Night's Rest, your nighttime body language might reveal more than you think.

The Fetal Position, lying curled on one side with legs bent,  was the most popular sleep position amongst the men and women surveyed, with 41  per cent choosing it as their favourite. This was also the clear winner amongst  women, with 51 per cent opting for a night curled under the comforter. 

According to the study, those who preferred this position are described  as presenting a tough exterior, but are often shy and sensitive under the  surface. They also may take some time to warm up to new people, but ultimately  relax and become more social. 

The Log Position, lying on your side with  legs straight and both arms resting at your sides, was the second most popular  amongst study participants, with 15 per cent reporting it as their first choice.  People who chose this nighttime  sleep stance were reported to be social, easy-going and trusting in  their daily lives, though sometimes prone to gullibility. 

The Yearner is one who sleeps on their side  with both arms stretched out in front of them. Thirteen per cent of people  surveyed chose this as their favoured sleep position, and identified themselves  as having open personalities, but were sometimes prone to suspicion and  cynicism. Yearners are also described as slow decision makers, but once the  choice is made they stick to it. 

The Soldier  Position, lying on your back with both arms straight at your sides, was the  first choice for eight per cent of study participants. Character traits for  those who prefer this position reflect their disciplined namesake, with sleepers  identifying themselves as people who set high expectations for themselves and  others, and exhibit a quiet and reserved nature. 

Freefallers like to sleep on their stomachs  with heads turned to the side and arms curled near their  pillow. Seven per cent of those surveyed said they preferred this  position and identified as being sociable and brash, though inwardly nervous and  often sensitive to criticism.

The Starfish  Position was the least popular amongst those with a preference, with only five  per cent of those surveyed choosing it as their favourite. Starfish sleepers lie  on their backs with legs sprawled and arms stretched up near the head, and were  reported to make friendship a priority. They dislike being the centre of  attention, instead offering to listen to the problems of others and go out of  their way to offer assistance to those in need.
