I'm not sure if this changes things, but I sleep on my stomach with my arms tucked under my thighs...

September 16, 2014 - 00:31

Although I sleep on my stomach a lot, i tend to more often sleep on my side with my arms crossed, or in the "hugging myself" position.

August 22, 2014 - 20:15

Sleeping on my stomach with my head turned to one side is exactly me. Usually I wake up that way and end up with a crick in my neck.

April 03, 2014 - 03:08

This is creepy accurate.

January 18, 2014 - 18:58

Its sooo like me its not even funny. I hog the covers and everything!!

January 10, 2014 - 00:17

Omg this was spot on. I sleep on my back with my arms close to my body and I do worry about my appearance. I also set high standards and I am always open to new experiences. Pretty eerie if you ask me

November 28, 2013 - 16:30

Creepy I sleep in the fetal position and it was so correct.

November 18, 2013 - 18:22

I'm stubborn? OK. I shock people who know me?! wait, makes sense now. I definitely hog the covers :)

October 16, 2013 - 17:33

cool. i am a cautious person. i always sleep sideways with my arms outstretched.

October 08, 2013 - 22:37

I have always and continue to sleep 'tied up.' twisted with my arms & ankles crossed. ..and this pretty much hit me head on.

October 04, 2013 - 18:20

So wrong. I sleep on stomach, but throw off covers. I may be stubborn, but I am quiet about it.

September 04, 2013 - 19:16

I sleep tied up...makes sense..

August 24, 2013 - 00:31

Sleep twisted up, the personality part makes sense, my life is slowly getting more complicated.

I sleep on my side with one leg down and one leg curled up and my arms tucked under either my face or pillow... anyone know what that one is called???

I sleep the same exact way, but I don't know what it's called either!?

my boyfriend refers to it as the Army Man, i sleep like that too and he says if he put a rifle in my hands it would resemble one of his little green army man

I sleep the EXACT same way. This is called 'The Leaper'. People who sleep like this complain quite a bit, are usually introverted and tend be anxious. This is me down to a T. Hope this helped :)

Me too. It means we are unique, original and and our choices are not easily understood by others... LOL. Not sure honestly but it sounded good. I wonder really what it means for our sleep position tho.

June 30, 2013 - 00:10

Just WOW! This quiz has been the most accurate thus far. I sleep on my belly with my head turned.

EVERY line is me to a T.

June 23, 2013 - 15:25
