睡觉方式体现个人性格

科学家们现在相信睡觉是的姿势将会对于推断某个人是那样的人提供重要的论断。
Chris Idzikowski 教授,SAAS(the Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service)——睡眠评估咨询中心的主任,分析出来6种常见的睡觉姿势-并且发现没一种姿势都与我们的人格有联系。

  • 婴儿式(The Foetus):
  • 那些把自己的蜷成婴儿的样子的人被描述为具有同他们的外表一样坚韧而又敏感的内心。当他们初次见某个人的时候可能很害羞,但是很快就会放松下来。这是最常见的睡觉姿势,参加调查的1000人中有41%都属于这种情况。同时这样睡觉的姿势的女人是男人的两倍 。

  • 圆筒式(Log):
  • 侧身躺着,并且手臂在两侧。以这种姿势睡觉的人很容易交往,喜欢到人多的地方并成为他们的一部分,并且很容易相信陌生人。他们很容易受骗。

  • 怀旧式(The yearner):
  • 将两个手都放到他们面前一边的人描述为很开放,但是也很多疑,喜欢冷嘲热讽。他们下决心很慢,但是一旦决定了就不喜欢更改。

  • 士兵式(The Soldier):
  • 平躺着,并且两支手臂在两边。以这种姿势睡觉的人普遍很安静保守。他们不喜欢大惊小怪,但是把他们自己和别人的要求定的都很高。

  • 自由落体式(Freefall):
  • 趴在床上,同时两手在枕头附近,头转向某一边。通常是社交型的人,同时脾气比较急躁,他们或肌肉发达,或很瘦,不喜欢批评或者极端的状况。

  • 海星式(Starfish):
  • 平躺,双手在枕头附近。这些人是很好的朋友,因为他们时刻准备着听取别人的想法,并且在需要的时候经常帮助别人。他们通常不喜欢成为大家注目的焦点。

    If you want an insight into somebody’s true personality, then try to catch a glimpse of the way they sleep.

    Scientists believe the position in which a person goes to sleep provides an important clue about the kind of person they are.

    Professor Chris Idzikowski, director of the Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service, has analysed six common sleeping positions – and found that each is linked to a particular personality type.

    “We are all aware of our body language when we are awake but this is the first time we have been able to see what our subconscious posture says about us.

    “What’s interesting is that the profile behind the posture is often very different from what we would expect.”

    To see the six positions studied by Professor Idzikowski

    ·  The 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 (15%): 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.

    ·  The yearner (13%): 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 (8%): 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 (7%): 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 (5%): 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.

    The remainder of those in the poll said the position they fell asleep varied or did not know.

    Health effect

    Professor Idzikowski also examined the effect of various sleeping positions on health.

    He concluded that the freefall position was good for digestion, while the starfish and soldier positions were more likely to lead to snoring and a bad night’s sleep.

    Professor Idzikowski said: “Lying down flat means that stomach contents can more readily be worked back up into the mouth, while those who lie on their back may end up snoring and breathing less well during the night.

    “Both these postures may not necessarily awaken the sleeper but could cause a less refreshing night’s sleep.”

    The research also found that most people are unlikely to change their sleeping position. Just 5% said they sleep in a different position every night.

    Duvet position

    Professor Idzikowski also found that one arm or leg sticking out of the duvet is Britain’s most common position, followed by both feet poking out the end.

    One in ten people like to cover themselves entirely with the duvet.
