What Your Sleep Position Says About Your Personality

What does your sleep position say about your personality? Do you like to curl into the fetal position, lay on your back, side, or face-down? The way we sleep is a form of body language. Our preferred sleeping position "reflects our inner traits," says to About.com Hotels Guide Charlyn Keating Chisholm.

So, what does your sleep position say about you (or him)? Charlyn writes:

Fetal Position: Curled up on your side, holding the pillow. The most popular sleeping position. The personality of these sleepers tends to be shy and sensitive, though they may present a tough exterior to the world.

Soldier Position: Flat on your back with arms at your sides. Indicates a quiet and reserved personality who sets high standards.

Starfish Position: Lying on your back with arms and legs outstretched. Indicates a good listener who makes friends easily, but prefers not to be the center of attention.

Freefall Position: Flat on your stomach with arms at the head or ears. Indicates a brash and gregarious exterior who may inwardly be nervous and sensitive to criticism.

Log Position: On your side with legs outstretched and arms at your sides. Indicates a social, easygoing personality.

Yearner Position: Similar to the log, but with arms outstretched. Said to indicate a suspicious and cynical personality.

So tonight, after you dip into the comforter, sneak a peak at your partner and let their body do the talking.
