According to sleep experts, it is possible to verify the relationship between the ones positions in bed and the individual personality. Body language exists at all times and also when we are sleeping. You may be surprised to learn that your sleeping position can also affect your health.
Let’s find out the meaning of each sleeping position below.
1. The Fetus.
It is sleeping sideways, shrunk with the knees towards the chest, arms crossed near the legs. It`s name derives from the position of the babies in the maternal womb.
It is the most frequent position used by most people. In the study cited above, 41% of the 1,000 participants chose it, women twice as much as men.
As for the personality, there are several variants. For example, “curling up” to sleep is related to sensitivity and emotional, as well as the tendency for more intense relationships. The person may seem shy when meeting someone, but then relaxes and becomes very warm, loving and fears being hurt sentimentally.
2. The Log.
Characterized by sleeping sideways with legs stretched and held together at the shoulder line. The hands are usually next to the body or one of them under the pillow or even stretched.
It is adopted by 15% of the people interviewed in the survey. These people are uninhibited, laid back and uncomplicated. They are very sociable, get along with most people, feel good when they are part of a group, they trust others and are usually quite innocent.
3. The Yearner.
The shoulder is straight, legs slightly bent forward, hands stretched forward, and can go under the pillow.
13% of study volunteers reported sleeping in this position. It denotes a more complex personality. Though friendly and open, one tends to be a little cynical and suspicious of others. Decision-making takes place very calmly, but when you find a reason it is very hard-headed and there is nothing to change your mind. You can be the best friend and be nice to everyone.
4. The Soldier.
Sleeps with the belly up, legs spread wide at the hips or shoulders, arms are stretched along the body (usually glued).
No more than 8% sleep this way, with chin facing the ceiling. These people are reserved, quiet, almost without strong emotions, do not talk much about themselves to others, do not like the “common” and have very high goals and objectives. They are loyal and protect their family and loved ones, as well as enhancing interpersonal ties.
5. The Freefaller.
It is called this way because it seems that people have just fallen from the sky. They are lying on their stomachs, with their heads turned to one side, with one hand under the pillow or stretched up.
They represent 7% of respondents in the survey. They are very intense, extroverted, daring people and, in the end, very sensitive. According to sleeping experts they love freedom very much, they do not like being “driven” about what to do (in any field, love, career, family, society, etc.), let alone being criticized.
6. The Starfish.
Is the opposite of the previous one because the person is facing upwards, with the arms circling partially or completely the pillow and the legs semiflexionadas or a folded.
It is the preferred position of 5% of people, who are better as listeners of problems of others, very good friends, always willing to help others, but most of the time they prefer to be the center of attention wherever they are.
