What Does Your Sleep Position Say About You?

What Does Your Sleep Position Say About You?

Many people fall asleep in a position that feels most comfortable, but did you know that even your sleep position can decode your personality traits? Nothing’s safe apparently.


The fetal sleep position is considered the most popular sleep style, and if you sleep in this position, it suggests that you have a tough exterior, but are soft and sensitive under the surface. It may take some time for you to warm up to people, but you become more social over time. You look at the world optimistically and treat people well even though you take your relationships slowly.


This sleeping position involves a person sleeping on their side with their arms extended out in front of their body. This position indicates that you’re inviting and open, but often suspicious and not easy to mislead. While ‘yearners’ may have difficulty making a decision, once their minds is made up, there’s nothing changing it.


Oddly enough, this position is as it sounds, like a log – full vertical, lying on the side with both arms extending straight against the body. If you sleep in this position, you’re likely to be very easy going and trusting, often bordering on gullible. You have a calm and kind disposition, with a strong ability to make friends easily.


Military style sleep position, lying back down and each arm is situated straight down against the body. If you sleep in this position, you’re likely more quiet, reserved and someone who takes themselves very seriously. You have high expectations of yourself and of the people you engage with have a very structured lifestyle. You’re also very likely to be open to new experiences and don’t mind being the centre of attention.


The freefall sleeping position is when a person finds comfort lying on their stomach with either cheek against the pillow and their hands placed under or near the pillow. If you are a freefaller, you are likely to display a very open, sociable personality but can be rather aggressive at times. You have strong set of principles and can be very meticulous in your daily life. As a freefaller, you gravitate towards routine and comfort.


A person who sleeps in the starfish position is on their back sprawled out with arms stretched up and legs stretched out. If you’re a starfish-er, you’re a good listener, very loyal, and someone who prioritizes the people they care about. While you possess confidence, you aren’t keen on being the centre of attention. You have an optimistic outlook on life and are always willing to help those in need.
