Professor Chris Idzikowsky, director of the Institute of British dream, has analyzed six common positions people adopt when we sleep. The results of the study have revealed that each position is identified with a particular personality type.
FETAL POSITION: This is tough on the outside but inside sensitive people. They may seem shy when meeting someone but then relax and displayed as they are. This position is the most common of all: was adopted by 41% of the 1000 people who took part in the study.
TRUNK: It is the position taken by people who sleep on their side with both arms extended over body. They are very social people who like being part of the group. Generally they trust the unknown and sometimes can sin of being too gullible.
SPEAKER: Similar to the trunk position but with both arms extended in front. They are open by nature but can show suspicious at times. They can be slow to make decisions but once they do they strongly cling to what they have decided and will not change.
SOLDIER: Those who take this position are usually quiet and reserved. They expect great things both themselves and others.
FACE DOWN: They are very sociable people who can cope perfectly to new situations. However, they can become very nervous and easily susceptible. They do not like criticism or extreme situations.
STARFISH: They are great friends because they are always ready to listen and offer help when they need it. They do not like being the center of attention.
In addition to personality types, Professor Idzikowsky also reached several conclusions related to health:
– The position FACE DOWN aids digestion.
– The positions of SOLDIER and STARFISH often lead to snoring and a bad night.
Finally, the professor said it is very difficult to change the sleeping position to which we are accustomed. Only 5% of participants in the study said sleep in different positions every night.
And how do you sleep? Can you identify any of these results with yourself or with your partner?
