01/10Your sleeping position says A LOT about your personality

02/10 8 most common sleeping positions
If you are interested in knowing how these sleeping patterns can tell a lot about a person’s personality, read on.
Here are the 8 most common sleeping positions and what each of the styles reveals about the sleeper.
03/10 Sleep Position 1: The fetal position
Also known as the ‘curling up like a baby’ position, it is one of the most popular sleeping positions. If you are someone who is seeking comfort and safety in your life, you may find yourself sleeping sideways, with your legs curled up like a baby.
This position simply signifies the sleeper’s need to be guarded against the world and feel secure. If you are someone who sleeps in a fetal position, you may be a gullible person who is really sensitive but tries to portray a tougher exterior.
04/10 Sleep Position 2: The stomach sleeper
If you are someone who sleeps on his/her tummy, let us tell you, it is the least common type of sleeping position. Further, sleeping face down encourages neck injuries and can prove to be harmful to pregnant women as well.
If you sleep on your tummy, you may be a social butterfly and a very amicable person. However, you may come across a little brash at times. You do not like being criticized, as you are really insecure on the inside.
05/10 Sleep Position 3: The log sleeper
If you lay on one side with your arms on the sides, you actually sleep like a log. If you recognise yourself in this sleeping position, you are someone who is really friendly and trust-worthy. Thanks to your popularity, you might just be the Queen Bee of your gang.
06/10 Sleep Position 4: Just like a soldier
How do you imagine a soldier standing? Quite possibly, it is standing in attention with his/her arms to the sides. If you sleep like a soldier, you are probably a strict, reserved and meticulous person. This military stance sleep type also means that you take your life very seriously and demand a lot from yourself.
07/10 Sleep Position 5: You hug a pillow
If you are someone who just cannot sleep without cuddling a pillow, you just might be a happy-go-lucky person, who tends to give a lot of importance to the relationships in his/her life. You are a really helpful person, who loves to go the extra mile for the people you love and care for.
08/10 Sleep Position 6: ‘Yearning’ for something?
This sleeping position means sleeping with your arms stretched out like you are reaching out for something. It is a common sleeping position and might signify that while you are very open towards others, you also tend to take longer to trust them. You might also be a little suspicious of others and you take some time to come to a final conclusion about them.
09/10 Sleep Position 7: The side-sleeper
Many people have a favourite side when it comes to sleeping on their sides. If sleeping on either of your sides is your go-to comfy position, it means you are an easy-going person, who welcomes everyone with an open heart.
Further, if your preferred sleeping side is left you may be more creative while those in favour of the right side are more likely to be alcoholic and smokers, at least according to the Sealy survey.
10/10 Sleep Position 8: You sleep on your back
Congratulations! If you sleep on your back, you are more likely to wake up recharged and good-to-go for the day. Sleeping on your back may even signify that you have really unrealistic and high expectations from yourself as well as others.
