Sleep position can give us a clue of our personality
The way we sleep does give away to others what our personalities maybe like.
Foetus: Those who curl up in the foetus position are described as strong on the outside but thin-skinned at heart. They may be introvert when they first meet somebody, but quickly relax.
This is the most universal sleeping position, adopted by 41% of the 1,000 people who took part in the survey. More than twice as many women as men have a tendency to take on this position.
Log (15%): Lying on your side with both arms down by your side. These sleepers are undemanding, social people who like being part of the in-crowd, and who are quick to trust a stranger. However, they may be naive.
Yearner (13%): People who sleep on their side with both arms out in front are said to have an open nature, but can be mistrustful, pessimistic. They are slow to make up their minds, but once they have taken a decision, they are unlikely ever to change it.
Soldier (8%): Lying on your back with both arms pinned to your sides. People who sleep in this position are generally tranquil and reserved. They don't like a fuss, but set themselves and others high standards.
Freefall (7%): Lying on your front with your hands around the pillow, and your head turned to one side. Often outgoing and brash people, but can be nervy and thin-skinned underneath, and don't like disapproval, or extreme situations.
Starfish (5%): Lying on your back with both arms up around the pillow. These sleepers make good mates because they are always ready to pay attention to others, and offer aid when needed. They generally don't like to be the centre of attention.
The remainder of those in the poll said the position they fell asleep varied or did not know.
