Sleep Positions. How do you sleep?

What your sleeping position says about you ...


Those who curl up in the fetus 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 easy going, 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 centre of attention.

I am not a Science Doctor, so none of this is my own idea. I stole it from another site. Thank you other site for the content. So, what type of sleeper are you? Comment below to let us know!

This stuff is always a little silly as there are aspects of our personality that can associate
with all of the sleep types. I am a free faller most nights, and I am a nervous person underneath. That's why I sweat all the time. Gross, I know, but it doesn't smell. I also am a yearner and a fetus by times. There you go. Too much information, brought to you by Brannigans Law...the blog that loves you!

    I am a fetus sleeper, but definitely not shy.

    Thanks for stopping by my son's safari pictures yesterday. He had quite the adventures in AFrica, including going to school and finding his wife. He is also a delivered drug addict, and we're writing his story together, if you're interested. It's on my sidebar, and we're looking forward to Part V soon.

    I go back and forth between fetus and free fall... that I know of... but I'm sleeping... so I could be in anyone of those positions and never know it... :)

    An excellent point for can we know how we sleep? All we really know is how we wake up. Surely though this gives us some clue...mysterious...
