It is often said that if you want to peak into someone’s personality, you should watch them sleep. We all have a different sleeping position, but what we don’t know is that it can actually reveal a lot about our inner-self and even our health in short our personality.
Below are some of the most common sleep positions. See if you can find yours and learn what your sleep style says about your personality.
#1 The Fetal Position
The fetal position is when a person sleeps on their side with their legs curled up underneath them.
Also known as the ‘curling up like a baby’ position, since we all did this once in the womb. It is one of the most popular sleeping positions.
Sleeping on your side in the baby position is also the best position for, funnily enough, when you are pregnant. Sleeping on your left side improves circulation to your baby while preventing your uterus from pressing against your liver.
Personality Traits: If you are someone who sleeps in a fetal position, you may be a gullible person who is tough on the outside, but a huge softy on the inside. They typically are shy when you first meet them and take time to open up, but once they open up they are relaxed and comfortable.
#2 The Skydiver Position
The Skydivers sleeps on their stomachs on, head to one side, with their arms wrapped behind the pillow.
Also known as Freefaller position. It is the least common type of sleeping position. The Skydiver position may sound like an adventure, but it is actually one of the worst ways of sleeping as it increases the risk of neck and back pain. It can prove to be harmful to pregnant women as well.
Personality Traits: If you are someone who sleeps on his/her tummy, you may be a very amicable person and have open, playful, and downright fun personalities. They tend to be risk takers.
