There are six common sleeping positions, the Fetus, the Log, the Yearner, the Soldier, the Free Faller, and the Starfish. Director of the Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service, Professor Chris Idzikowski, has come to find that the position in which we sleep can give us clues about what our personalities may be like.

Curling up into a ball or fetus position is clearly the Fetus sleep position. This is the most common sleeping position. The Log is the position where you’re on your side with both arms down at your side. If you sleep on your side with both arms out in front, you sleep in the Yearner position. The Soldier position is lying on your back with both arms pinned to your sides Sleeping on your stomach with your hands around the pillow and your head turned to one side is called the Free Faller position. The Starfish is where you lay on your back with both arms up around the pillow.
