You are getting verrrry sleepy

Which way do my readers sleep?

This is out of 26 votes. Do you know what that says about your personality? A bunch of B.S., but I'll share with you what I found anyways.

Side sleepers- You are calm and rational person with a good deal of balance in your life. Friends consider you to be kind, caring, and truly loyal. You are easy going and trusting. However, you are too sensible to fall for mind games. Open to the world, you are not afraid to be yourself.
If you don't get enough sleep, you are: Able to cope
It's hard to sleep next to you because: You're a bed hog

Back Sleepers-You are confident and ready to tackle life.You are pretty vain and happy with your physical appearance.You are born to be the center of attention, and you're unhappy on the sidelines. You're always up for trying something new - in and out of bed!
If you don't get enough sleep, you: Look like hell
It's hard to sleep next to you because: You toss and turn all night

Stomach Sleepers- You have a passion for everything - including sleeping. Outgoing and brash, you tend to still shock those who know you well. You tend to be selfish. You are the most likely type to take over the whole bed.You gravitate toward comfort and don't like extreme situations.
If you don't get enough sleep, you are: In a very bad mood
It's hard to sleep next to you because: You hog the covers.

I sleep on my side but I am so not a bed hog. Most of the time.

Here are some more detailed sleep descriptions.






Foetus (fetus?)Those who curl up in the foetus position are described as tough on the outside but sensitive at heart. They may be shy when they first meet somebody, but soon relax. This is the most common sleeping position, adopted by 41% of the 1,000 people who took part in the survey. More than twice as many women as men tend to adopt this position.

LogLying on your side with both arms down by your side. These sleepers are easy going, social people who like being part of the in-crowd, and who are trusting of strangers. However, they may be gullible.

YearnerPeople who sleep on their side with both arms out in front are said to have an open nature, but can be suspicious, cynical. They are slow to make up their minds, but once they have taken a decision, they are unlikely ever to change it.

SoldierLying on your back with both arms pinned to your sides. People who sleep in this position are generally quiet and reserved. They don't like a fuss, but set themselves and others high standards.

FreefallLying on your front with your hands around the pillow, and your head turned to one side. Often gregarious and brash people, but can be nervy and thin-skinned underneath, and don't like criticism, or extreme situations.

StarfishLying on your back with both arms up around the pillow. These sleepers make good friends because they are always ready to listen to others, and offer help when needed. They generally don't like to be the centre of attention.

Says I'm a Yearner. *Shrugs*

That freefaller pic is HILARIOUS. Looks like a middle aged woman in pjs just did a belly flop into bed and stayed there. Granted, that's how I sleep...so I guess Tom Petty and I have more in common than I originally thought.

Tress said...

Nicki- HA! I know! I love the starfish one, too!

Jess said...

Wow I'm a side sleeper and that stuff is pretty accurate. Interesting....

amchornetgirl said...

I do the fetus, but mostly because my back hurts if I fall asleep with my body straightened out.

Amy said...

I sleep on both sides, fetus and on my stomach (free faller with my feet hanging off the bed SO COMFORTABLE)

Is it bad I selected all four for your new poll? hahah

Amy said...

P.S. It's missing Ke$ha... anyone with a symbol in their name deserves to disappear forever.

Simple Dude said...

I am weird... when I first go to bed I HAVE to lay on my stomach to fall asleep. That's the only way that always works. But if I wake up in the middle of the night I will always switch to laying on my side to fall BACK asleep. Then in the morning most of the time I wake up I am laying on my back. The lady friend must love all the sleep dancing i'm doing.

So I am a freefallin' starfish shaped fetus I guess.

I fall asleep in all of those positions. And always wake up twisted so I'm like half on my back and half on my side.

irishgrudge said...

I start out as a starfish but turn into a yearner.

Who do I want to fall off the face of the planet? This kid I went to high school with that posts the most ridiculous conservative tripe all over facebook, yet refuses to engage in any meaningful conversation. He comes at any discussion with the zeal and aggression of a dragon slayer trying to save the princess from President-antichrist-socialist-muslim-Obama. He's a psycho, but I just can't bring myself to click the Hide button because I'm a glutton for watching crazy people.

Sandra said...

I sleep in the fetal position, so I may look tough, but I'm all shy and scared on the inside....bwahahahahah!
This is great stuff though. If we could package it and make it into a party game, we'd make a killing!

Bouncin' Barb said...

Haha...this is too funny. The only reason I sleep on my side is because I can't sleep on my back or stomach due to severe back pain so where does that leave me? hahaha.

Tress said...

Blogger is really ticking me off as of late. Still no reading list and it keeps messing with the format on my posts. So forgive the random spacing and the misplaced paragraphs. Freakin' Blogger. Damn you.

@Jess-I'm a side sleep as well. Some of it is accurate, except I'm not calm. lol.

@Hornet- I'm the opposite. If I get all curled up, I wake up feeling like I can't unravel.

@Amy-LOL That's why I let multiple answers be chosen. I couldn't let my feet dangle off the bed, I would be afraid a shark would eat them or something. What? I dream vividly. And yes, perhaps I should have put Ke(dollar sign)ha on there.

@SD- LMAO. You are definitely a mixture. Does your lady friend ever get any sleep? :)

@Kyrie- That would KILL my back! I usually wake up the same way I fell asleep.

@Irish-HAHAH! Love the rant. I should add your Facebook friend to the poll. Hehe. I have a "friend" on my account that airs out all of her dirty laundry on every status, every day. It's really annoying but I can't delete her because then I feel out of the loop.

@Sandra- I love the way you think!:) There are so many ridiculous personality things on the net. Like what does your eye color say about you? Ugh, it says my father dominated the eye gene while creating me and I was blessed with his eyes and not my mother's? No not at all, it says that you are a strong willed person who enjoys long walks on the beach and chick flicks. WTF?

@Barb- You are a "I have no choice but to side sleep so your personality test can kiss my ass" sleeper. You can shorten it to Kiss My Ass. I think that works?

hed. said...

I'm a wierdo sleeper (although, with me, that should be expected). I have the leg pillow, the "hug me" pillow and the head pillow, and I need my hand close to my chest or I can't fall asleep! I wonder who still sucks their thumb...I have friends that still do! I agree about Ke$ha and would like to have Britney Spears as a write-in. Thanks. :P Hed hed down under

becca said...

who knew you could learn all that by the way you sleep. i am not a bed hog but i am a cover hog.

Calandreya said...

I came over to read your blog and realized Peregrin picked ME! Figures, he'd do that when there wasn't anything funny at all on my blog. lol So, I had to do a new post that -might- cause a giggle or two.

I'm a left side sleeper for several reasons, all of which were decisions made while conscious, and I had to train myself to sleep that way.

Tress said...

Hed- Weirdo sleeper. LOL. Love it. I like the body pillows but there isn't enough room in my bed between Boyfriend and the dog to have one. We are going to invest in a king size bed one of these days

Becca-I actually throw covers off of me and Boyfriend keeps covering me back up throughout the night. He thinks I need them apparently.

Calandreya- Awesome! I'll be over to check it out. I'm also really curious about your reasonings behind your side sleeping.

Mamarazzi said...

so interesting! really, learned so much about myself tee hee

Daffy said...

I'm a side sleeper too but I don't think I'm a bed hog. Of course I'm the only one in a king size bed...so there isn't anyone to complain *grin*

Brittany said...

what if I like everyone on your poll? lol

jk..

i'm going with JB!

Stace said...

I want the whole jersey shore cast to fall off the planet because they are everywhere and think their celebrities.

Tress said...

@Mamarazzi-Um, glad to provide the useless insight? LOL. Now I have my personality pegged because of the way I sleep. Jeeze. Shoulda looked into that along time ago :)

@Daffy- I'm jealous of your king size bed. I'm gonna go pout.

@Brit-I have a feeling JB is going to win this one, but we will see!

@Stace- You know...I have never in my life watched a single episode of Jersey Shore and I hate them. They are so freakin' overrated.
