On what side of the bed do you sleep?
If you live together with your partner and you share a bed there’s about a 99.99% chance you both have your own side of the bed. Without thinking about it you get into bed at your side, and your partner gets in at theirs. How these sides are divided is a bit of a mystery, because do you remember when you ‘decided’ on what side you sleep on? Probably not, because you subconscious is the most important motivation!
The side of the bed you sleep on every night can reveal a lot about your personality!
Do you sleep on the left side (meaning your partner sleeps to your right)? This means you’re a positive person and you can handle stress quite well. Two-thirds of the people who sleep on the left react more calmly in a crisis than their right-sleeping partner. They’re also more confident and have a more positive outlook on life, compared to 18% of the people that sleep on the right. The people that sleep on the right are usually also a bit more grumpy, according to this research.
So, it’s no wonder that the people who sleep on the left refuse to trade sides with their partners. It’s so important to some people that 1 in 10 couples fights about it! These fights don’t just have to do with preferences but also with laziness. Besides not wanting to sleep close to the door, the following arguments often come up: not wanting to be close to the heating, wanting a better view of the television, wanting to be further away from traffic noise or sleeping babies or wanting more space next to the bed.
