Different people sleep differently. But does your sleeping position convey something about your true self? Psychologists say that when you sleep, your unconscious mind takes over and there is nothing which can restrict your body and its movements. So, your sleeping position can give others a glimpse into your personality. Let us have a look at some common sleeping positions and what they say about you.
#1. The foetal position
Position: Curled up on your side.
Personality: Foetal sleepers are an anxious lot. They tend to overanalyse everything and are great ‘worriers’. Surprisingly, research says that the foetal position is the most common sleeping position. This position is very soothing and comforting and you tend to sleep like this when you are undergoing a lot of stress. Every person at some point of his or her life has slept in this position.
#2. The leaper
Position: Sideways with one of your legs in a straight line and the other raised.
Personality: These people are very fussy and want everything to go their way. They tend to be very complaining and never make an effort to adjust to new situations. Leapers are also a nervous lot and they tend to think for ages before taking the ‘leap’, but once their decision is made, they tend to stick to it no matter what.
#3. The freefaller
Position: It is considered to be a very uncomfortable position: here the person lies flat on his tummy with both the arms and legs outstretched.
Personality: The freefallers are quite self-centered and stubborn. Their sleep is quite turbulent and these people like to be in control of everything. Constantly on the run, these people are over sensitive and don’t take criticism well.
#4. The star sleeper
Position: Sleeping on your back with both arms and legs stretched outwards, occupying most of the bed.
Personality: They are considered to be good listeners and make really good friends. Such people love their comfort and are free spirited and carefree. The star sleepers always like to be in the background and don’t like drawing too much attention.
#5. The log
Position: It is considered to be the second most common sleeping position. The sleeper in this position keeps their body stretched out in a straight line.
Personality: This position is most commonly associated with those who are easy going and like good company. They easily trust people to the point of being very gullible.
#6. Covered from head to toe
Position: Covered from head to top while sleeping.
Personality: If you like your razai or blanket to cover your body from top to bottom, then you are a person who always tries to put on a brave facade even though you are going through troubled times. Such sleepers keep mum about their problems instead of asking for help. The blanket acts like a shield between them and the rest of the world. Such people are usually shy and tend to have a lot of secrets buried in their hearts.
