We all sleep, but did you know that the way you sleep says a lot about who you are as an individual?
For instance, Leonardo da Vinci took 20-minute naps every four hours to recharge his intellectual batteries, Charles Dickens slept facing north because he felt it improved his creativity, and these baby otters make squeaky toy noises as they nap because they’re cute enough to make you squeal.
Most of us don’t have as eccentric sleeping habits as Mariah Carey, who surrounds herself with 15 humidifiers before she takes a siesta, but slight subtleties in our snoozing styles says as much about who we are as the music we like, the color we’re drawn to, or the life paths we choose.
The position in which we sleep seems like a completely subconscious choice, but who we are dictates which positions are the most doze-worthy for dreamtime and it seems if someone really wanted to get to know who someone else is, the secret’s in the slumber.
How do you sleep at night? On your side, back, or your belly? Believe it or not it can say a lot about who you are when you’re awake…
Log position, in which the sleeper slumbers on their side, legs extended straight and arms by their sides, is the second most popular position. Though the position looks stiff, a person who sleeps like this is anything but rigid. Log sleepers are very social and easygoing people. Although they like conversing with all kinds of people, they definitely prefer running with an A-list crowd. They are also very trusting, which can sometimes make them seem a little gullible.
The yearner position looks a lot like the log. The sleeper snoozes on their sides but their arms are stretched out in front of them, kind of like a mummy. Studies say that people who choose this position are usually very inviting and open. Yet, they can be suspicious and are often very cynical. Yearners are also as slow as turtles when it comes to making decisions, but once their minds are set, they’re as stubborn as a mule about changing it.
