Sleep positions and personality.

Ahh… more silliness from the old blog:

“Scientists believe the position in which a person goes to sleep provides an important clue about the kind of person they are.”
I really enjoy the different position names:

The Foetus
The yearner
Farting Buffalo

Ok.. I’m lying about the farting buffalo.
Well I know this whole thing is a little retarded but I think I may be:

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.

I wake up in different positions all the time. Does this mean I have split personalities? Must be.

And…….here’s the original article.

Ohh… and completely off topic – here’s an Islamist video guide on how to beat your wife.

    It sounds about as scientific as deciding that the planet Neptune must be associated with “water signs” in astrology because of, well, you know, its name. And why did they call that last position “starfish” instead of “spreadeagle”?

    I tend to fall asleep on my side or lying prone. No doubt my various personalities are similarly ambiguous.

    Those “scientists” must not have been very old.

    As you get older, you pick the body position that simply doesn’t hurt as much. (Oh, and the one that helps keep my nose drained and clear so that I can breathe and not snore.)

    Hmmm. Since everyone sleeps in a hammock the same way, then hammocks must be personality changing devices? Am I thinking right here?

    well.. i think the hammock probably is personality changing… 😉
    it turns you grumpy from not sleeping well!

    Interesting. Harold the Vampire Cat sleeps in the starfish position, which apparently refers to a person who is prone to throwing up on your shoes.

    And thank goodness that Imam clarified that a wife is not her husband’s property. He must sleep in the “couch” position.
