I'm A Starfish

No wait, I’m a soldier! I have not gone crazy before you ask – I am simply trying to work out what type of personality I have!

Here at Feather & Black we feel it is important to know what type of person our customers are. Are you a Yearner, a Foetus or a Free faller? These are some of the positions in which people sleep which say a lot about a person. Have you always slept in the same position and have done for years? Research found that most people are unlikely to change their sleeping position through the years and only 5% say they sleep in a different position every night. Professor Chris Idzikowski, the director of the UK Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service has studied six common sleeping positions - and found that each is linked to a particular personality type. If you are unsure ask you partner, or have a look at the picture below and a good old think…

What your sleeping position says about you...

Foetus: Those who curl up in the foetus position are described as tough on the outside but sensitive at heart. They may be shy when they first meet somebody, but soon relax. This is the most common sleeping position, adopted by 41% of the 1,000 people who took part in the survey. More than twice as many women as men tend to adopt this position.

Log: Lying on your side with both arms down by your side. These sleepers are easy going, social people who like being part of the in-crowd, and who are trusting of strangers. However, they may be gullible.

Yearner: People who sleep on their side with both arms out in front are said to have an open nature, but can be suspicious, cynical. They are slow to make up their minds, but once they have taken a decision, they are unlikely ever to change it.

Soldier: Lying on your back with both arms pinned to your sides. People who sleep in this position are generally quiet and reserved. They don't like a fuss, but set themselves and others high standards.

Freefall: Lying on your front with your hands around the pillow, and your head turned to one side. Often gregarious and brash people, but can be nervy and thin-skinned underneath, and don't like criticism, or extreme situations.

Starfish: Lying on your back with both arms up around the pillow. These sleepers make good friends because they are always ready to listen to others, and offer help when needed. They generally don't like to be the centre of attention.

Is this a true representation of you?
