This is Professor Dr Angelina giving you another lecture before you go to sleep. Did I just say "sleep"? Yes, I did. Because that's what this lecture is all about. Sleep, more specifically sleeping positions, and how it reveals your personality.
A good friend of mine, Professor Chris Idzikowski, (we became friends through Uncle Google, of course) has come with an analysis linking the personality of humans with the sleeping position s/he's got. His analysis encompasses six common sleeping positions, connected to a particular personality type.
The six positions investigated by Idzikowski are:
1. The Foetus: Those individuals are apparently tough on the outside but have a "big heart". They may be shy (and thus appear arrogant) at the first meeting, but soon they get relaxed. This is the most frequent sleeping position, found in 41% of the 1,000 subjects involved in the investigation who took part in the survey. Twice more women than men adopt this position.
2. Log: found in 15% of the cases, it's characterized by lying on your side with both arms down by your side. These are easy going, social people who usually trust strangers, a fact that makes them gullible.
3. Yearner: 13%, people who sleep on their side with both arms out in front were found to posses an open nature, but can also have a suspicious, cynical character. They require time to take decisions, but once taken, they won't change their mind.
4. Soldier: in 8% of the cases - lying on your back with both arms pinned to your sides. These are generally quiet and reserved people, who avoid loud discussions, but set high standards for themselves and others around them.
5. Freefall: 7% of the cases - sleeping on your stomach with your hands around the pillow, and your head turned to one side. Sociable and brash people, can be bad tempered, rejecting criticism, or avoid extreme situations.
6. Starfish: 5% of the subjects - sleeping on your back with both arms up around the pillow. These are trustworthy and good listeners; they dislike being the centre of attention.
Other subjects (5 %) said they had variable sleeping positions.
Idzikowski also investigated the effect of the sleeping positions on the general health. The freefall position was found beneficial for digestion, while the starfish and soldier positions made subjects more prone to snoring and a bad night's sleep.
