Sleeping Position = Your Personality

Everyone has a certain sleeping position, which is the position you lay in when falling asleep. Studies have shown that your particular position can actually tell people a little bit about yourself. That's right -- it's like a subconscious personality test.

I am going to base this article around Professor Chris Idzikowski's studies.

Chris Idzikowski, who is the director of the UK Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service, surveyed 1,000 different individuals, both male and female, and came up with some quite interesting results. After surveying the individuals, Idzikowski analyzed his results and ended up with six different positions, all linked with specific personality traits.

"We are all aware of our body language when we are awake but this is the first time we have been able to see what our subconscious posture says about us. What's interesting is that the profile behind the posture is often very different from what we would expect." - Professor Idzikowski.

Now, on to the results!

Foetus (41%) - Those of you who sleep like this are described to have a tough exterior but a sensitive heart on the inside. You also may be shy when first meeting new people, but soon will open up.

Log (15%) - People who claim this position are easy-going and sociable people. They enjoy being part of the "in-crowd", but also can be gullible.

Yearner (13%) - These people have an open nature but can be suspicious and distrusting of others. They also take a while to make up their mind, but when they do they probably won't change it.

Soldier (8%) - Soldiers are usually quiet and shy. They don't like to fuss, but set themselves, and others, high standards.

Freefall (7%) - People who sleep like this are sociable and brash people, but are sometimes nervy or thin skinned underneath. They also don't like criticism or extreme situations.

Starfish (5%) ? These people are good friends, great listeners and are caring, they, also, usually don't like being the center of attention.

Here's an image of each sleeping position:
