What Your Sleeping Position Says About Your Personality
Everyone on this earth is unique. We all have our own special styles and quirks when it comes to any activity, from eating to exercising, and yes, even sleeping. Take Leonardo da Vinci for instance, he took 20-minute naps every four hours to recharge his creative batteries, Charles Dickens slept facing north because he also felt it improved his creativity. You might not be Charles Dickens or Leonardo Davinci, but it doesn’t take a genius to realize that good sleep with foam for bed mattresses is always the way to a great day.
With that in mind, we’ve come up with this quick and handy guide for you to see what your sleeping style says about you.

Log position, in which the sleeper rests on their side, legs extended straight and arms in place, is the second most popular position for any sleeper. Though the position looks stiff, a sleeper with style like this is anything but rigid and cold. Log sleepers are typically social and easygoing people. They converse with all kinds of people, but can prefer running with an A-list crowd. They are also very trusting, which can sometimes make them seem a little more gullible to outsiders.

The Yearning Dreamer
The yearning dreamer position is related to the log. The sleeper snoozes on their sides, but this time their arms are stretched out in front of them: think like a mummy. Studies have shown that people who choose this position are typically inviting and open. Yet, they can be suspicious of new friends and acquaintances. The Yearning Dreamers are also as slow and deliberate when it comes to decision making, but once their minds are set, they are set on that path. Good and reliable friends.

Up and at ‘em, sargent! A person that sleeps in the sleepy soldier position sleeps on their back, with their arms straight down at their side — like they are standing at attention. Sleepy Soldiers live up to their name. They are strong, silent, and focused people who don’t like a big fuss. They love structure and take themselves very seriously. This also means that they can have high expectations for themselves and others around them. This is also a position that can lead to snoring.

A skydiver sleeps on their stomachs, head to one side, with their arms wrapped around behind a pillow. As the name suggests, skydiver sleepers have open, playful, and downright fun personalities. They are usually to-the-point with what they want, but sometimes this comes off as brash. They may seem free spirited, but skydiver sleepers can be secretly anxious and crave control of a situation. They tend to be risk takers.
The Shooting Star
The shooting star position is the least popular sleep style by numbers. Truly unique. They lie on their backs with legs stretched out. Their arms stretched up beyond their head. They look like a starfish on land. People who sleep like this may have an unconventional style. But they are very loyal friends and make relationships a great priority. They love to be supportive. They act as a sounding board for their friends’ problems. And will go out of their way to help. This makes perfect sense, since it the shooting star makes them look like they are perpetually reaching their arms out for a hug.
The baby, or fetal position, is where a person sleeps on their side with their legs curled up underneath them. This is the most popular position of all. According to a survey performed by sleep specialist Chris Idzikowski, author of the book, Learn to Sleep Well, 41 percent of all sleepers use this style. If you use the baby position while you sleep, you may have a tough exterior that hides a shy and sensitive nature inside.
