When we sleep, some of us curl up and some of us sprawl out. These different sleeping positions may not seem like a big deal, but some people believe the way you sleep reveals your character traits and personalities. Professor Chris Idzikowski, director of the Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service of the Edinburgh Sleep Centre, believed he discovered the personality traits of sleeping positions after conducting a survey of sleepers in the 1940s. With regards to his research, he stated, “We are all aware of our body language when we are awake but this is the first time we have been able to see what our subconscious posture says about us.”
Sleep is essential to the human body, as you can die from severe sleep deprivation. Because it’s such an important function, maybe the position you snooze in actually matters. From postures like “The Soldier” to “The Yearner,” what does your sleeping position unveil about you?
