What Your Sleeping Position Says About You

A. Skydiver

Sleep on their stomachs, head to one side, with their arms wrapped behind a pillow. Skydiver sleepers have open, playful, and downright fun personalities. They are usually to-the-point, but this can sometimes come off as brash. They tend to be risk takers and seem free spirited, but skydiver sleepers can be anxious and crave control of a situation.

B. Stargazee

Sleep on their back with arms behind their head or resting on them.. These type of sleepers are more positive and helpful. They have an easy going, positive outlook, much like side sleepers. They will do anything to help friends and family, and are extremely loyal to those that they hold dear to them.

C. Starfish

Sprawls out all over the place they don’t really have a set position. These sleepers are eager to give friends support. The're outgoing and positive but don’t want to be the center of attention. They are more carefree and tend to go with the flow. They are great people to be around, people-pleasers and natural leaders.​

D. Pillow huggers

Sleep with their arms wrapped around a pillow. They show more affection and rather cuddle up next to someone than be alone. Like “stargazers” they care  about their personal relationships. They are more family orientated. Personal bonds in their life are often the most important things to them. They are very loyal to their significant others, friends, and family.

E. Fetal position

This position has a few different traits. They  like the sense of safety the position offers as they doze off. In general, they are more sensitive people. Although more sensitive, they can often exhibit a tougher exterior. They can come off as shy, but they are more personable then others. Studies show this is the most common sleeping position.​

F. Stomach sleepers

Have much bolder personalities on the exterior. They are also far more sociable on the outside, but they are not as confident on the inside. Stomach sleepers don’t take criticism well and problems don’t roll off their back as easily as with others. They don’t handle stressful situations well as they tend not to have a thick skin. ​

G. The Hugger

The hugger position is like the fetal position, however it involves hugging a pillow. This is a sign of an affectionate cuddler. These people like to feel safe, warm and protected, but they can also be strong. These people value strong and long-lasting friendships, are close to their family and they are nurturing to their partners. This position is also associated with absent-mindedness. They love to daydream, think of new possibilities and are good problem-solvers.​

H. The Yeaner

The 'yeaners' sleep on their side with their arms out. They are less gullible, however they tend to take a long time to make up their minds. Once they have their mind set, you can't change it. They can  also be more cynical.
