How do you sleep at night? Could it be that you sleep on your side, back, or your belly? Believe it or not the postures of our sleep speak volumes about us. This is quite a shocking thing, but many studies have been performed by reputable professionals, in which specific personality traits have been linked to sleep patterns. Let's take a look at a few of these postures and find out what they say about our personalities.
1. The Log Posture
The Log position, in which the sleeper lies on their side with his/her legs extended straight and arms by their sides, shows that a person who sleeps like this is very social and easygoing. Such sleepers like conversing with all kinds of people and also love being with successful people. They are also very trusting, which can sometimes make them seem a little gullible.
2. The 'Yearner' Posture
It has been scientifically proven that people who choose to sleep this way are usually very inviting and open (sociable). Yet, they can be suspicious and are often very cynical. Scientists also reveal that such persons are also as slow when it comes to making decisions, but once their minds are set, they’re as stubborn as a pregnant cat to changing it.
3. The Soldier Position
Sleeping in the Soldier Position means sleeping on your back with the arms straight down at your side. Sleepers of this very posture are by nature the strong, silent types who can't stand 'madness'. They are very structured and take themselves, and those around them, very seriously. This also means that they have high expectations for themselves and others around them. They are good snorers too.
4. The Free-faller Posture
If you sleep this way it simply means that you doze on your stomach, having your head tilted to the side, with your arms wrapped around a pillow. Free-faller sleepers are said to have open, gregarious, and playful personalities. They may seem free as the wind most of the time, but can also be secretly anxious and crave control. Although they tend to be risk takers, they’re surprisingly sensitive to criticism as well.
5. Starfish Posture
Starfish sleepers lie on their backs with their legs stretched apart and arms stretched up by their head. People who sleep in this unconventional style are very loyal pals who make friendship a big deal in their lives. They love hearing the problems of others and will go out their way to help when they can. Makes sense, since it the position makes them look like they reaching their arms out for a hug. Awww! sounds so dear!
If you are fond of the fetal position, you may seem to have a tough exterior, but are very shy and sensitive on the inside. You also overthink a problem and worry unnecessarily.
