What Your Sleeping Position Says About You …

When we’re sleeping, we do all kinds of odd stuff, but if told or confronted, we won’t admit to any of it; who would because we’re not even aware of what we’re doing, if caught on tape or video, we can always deny, that it’s some sort of sound effect or something.

When I was little, my younger sister said that I peed on her during the night. Duh, her pajama pants were wet, not mine but that’s her story, she’s still sticking to it until this day (I’m a dog person, and NO I didn’t pee on her to mark my territory.) Did I give her any reason to believe that I did it? Maybe…but I’m not admitting to any of it, so they say, when I was little I used to sleepwalking, one time in Thailand, I was about 7 years old, my sister took me to a party, ate, drank, the whole nine yards, the next morning I didn’t know what she was talking about, I still won’t admit that I did all that. Another time was when I was living in NYC, everyone were still up watching TV, I walked passing them and went into the hall closet to use the bathroom, my GI Joe sister dragged me out, and then I headed for the kitchen. They thought it was funny and told me about it the next morning, I didn’t know what they were talking about, and still won’t admit that it happened. I didn’t think I was a sleepwalker back then, but if I were, I had outgrown that now, I don’t sleepwalking anymore, (yeah, yeah…you might say) hey, it’s my story and I’ll stick to it!

So when we sleep, we might be grinding our teeth, snoring, or sleeping in odd position but who’d want to admit to any of that. I’m not aware that I’m doing any of that, but if told, I’d deny it in a heartbeat; it’s a bit embarrassing. They say that your sleeping position say a lot about you, this is not so bad, ‘How Do You Sleep?’ was once posted at the old Laoplanet.net by Salat. I do have to say that I sleep in a foetus position, but what they say about it, I won’t admit whole-heartily that it’s me. Original source.


You may not achieve the comfort levels and sleep position you are used to in your bed at home, but look around the cabin next time you fly to see the many different positions we adopt (or try to !) whilst asleep.

Scientists believe the position in which a person goes to sleep provides an important clue about the kind of person they are.

So …. what does your sleeping position actually say about you ?

Professor Chris Idzikowski, director of the UK Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service analyzed six common sleeping positions – and found that each is linked to a particular personality type.


What your sleeping position says about you …


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.


Lying on your side with both arms down by your side. These sleepers are easygoing, social people who like being part of the in-crowd, and who are trusting of strangers. However, they may be gullible.


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.


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.


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.


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 center of attention.
