What Does Your Bed Say About You?

What Does Your Bed Say About You?

By Jennifer Grudziecki

Hopefully, you have a bed. And if you're like us, you probably spend as much of your life as possible in that bed. And what better way to get to know someone than to study the space they spend their unconscious time in? Whether you smother your bed in nice, fluffy pillows or strip it down to the bare minimals, we can tell a lot about you from your snoozing style. Like what, you ask? Read on to find out!

The Princess Bed. You've got a canopied four-poster covered in stuffed animals you've been collecting since before you left the womb, and you love it. You have a hard time letting go of things, especially anything that might be sentimental. You're a romantic, and you tend to think the best of everyone. You spend a lot of your free time scrapbooking or on Pinterest.

The Pillow Queen. Bed? What bed? You've really just got a pile of pillows shaped to look like a bed. You like being comfortable, and you're always prepared for anything. You're a socialite, and a very hospitable one at thatyour friends (and maybe even strangers) love to camp out in your bedroom and munch on that secret stash of chocolate you keep in your nightstand. You probably spend a lot of your free time eating frozen yogurt with your best buds and falling asleep with the lights on.

The Minimalist. Who needs all that fluffy stuff? Your bed only contains the bare essentials: a pillow and a comforter, and maybe one of those stretchy sheets. Maybe. You like to keep things simple, and you hate drama. You're not necessarily ambitious, but you do what needs to be done. You spend a lot of your time playing board games with your parents because hey, Parcheesi is fun.

The Rat's Nest. You actually can't remember the last time you made your beddo you even know how? Your bed is a tangle of sheets and blankets, mostly because it's easier that way, but also because you read somewhere that it's harder to tell if you actually slept in your bed if it's always a disaster. You're a fun person: you like adventure, and if that means sneaking out in the middle of the night to bungee jump, then that's what you're going to do. You spend a lot of your time planning the tattoo you're going to get next year.

The Futon. You don't really have a bedyou have a futon couch with a comforter on it. You don't spend a lot of time in your bed, mostly because you don't spend a lot of time anywhere. You're always on the go, and you don't get attached to things. You're a cynic and a bit of a loner, but you've got your books to keep you company. You spend a lot of your time driving, since that's the only thing that really puts you at ease.

The Four Corner Bed. Your bed has never been anything but neat. Even when you sleep in it, it still looks perfectly made. You're a doer: you love checklists, and you love getting things done...even if they don't need to be. You're a bit of a control freak, but only because you crave organization. You spend a lot of your time doing all the work in group projectsafter all, no one else can be trusted to get it done.
