Your Favorite Sleeping Position Says All the Truth About Your Personality

You might not pay much attention to the way you sleep, but according to experts, your sleeping position says a lot about your personality.

Match the way in which you usually sleep to the picture below and find out what it reveals about you.

Sleep Position 1

You lie on your back with both arms down by your sides. It’s another not-so-popular position with only 11% of Americans preferring to sleep this way, although sleep lab studies show that most people (over 62%) actually start out laying on their backs, before ending up in other positions.

Personality traits:

Quiet and reserved. Soldiers may hold both themselves and other people to high standards.

Sleep Position 2

You lie on your back with both arms up by your pillow. Men are more likely to sleep in the Starfish position than women.

Personality traits:

Starfish sleepers tend to be selfless, giving people, always ready to lend a helping hand or listening ear.

Sleep Position 3

You lie on your side with your knees bent towards your chest, curled up like a baby. This is the most common sleeping position among Americans (47%)—and it’s more common with women than men.

Personality traits:

Sensitive at heart, people who report sleeping in the fetal position may show traits of shyness and introversion.

Sleep Position 4

You lie on your stomach with your hands up by your pillow and your head turned to the side, like a skydiver. This position, also known as the prone position, seems to be more common with Gen Xers and millennials, according to recent research by the BSC.

Personality traits:

Some say free fallers don’t take criticism well and tend to be brash, bold, and outspoken in nature.

Sleep Position 5

You lie on your side with both arms stretched out in front of you. Boomers are more likely to sleep this way than millennials and Gen Xers.

Personality traits:

Open-minded, complex, and cynical. Some sources say yearners can be slow in making decisions but are resolute once their minds are made up.

Sleep Position 6

You lie on your side with both arms straight down. If that sounds uncomfy, the stats would agree: Only about 6% of Americans report sleeping like a log.

Personality traits:

Easy going, social, and trusting of others. Log sleepers are also more likely to consider themselves to be healthy.
