What Making (or Not Making) Your Bed in the Morning Says About Your Personality

This explains a lot!

There are two types of people in this world: those who make their beds in the morning and those who don't.

So, what is it that makes certain people prioritize bed-making in the wee hours of the morning and others to overlook this mundane chore entirely? The mattress review website Sleepopolis.com ventured to find out.

With help from OnePoll, Sleepopolis conducted a survey of 2,000 Americans to see what making (or not making) your bed might say about other aspects of your personality.

What they found is that people who report making their beds in the morning (60 percent of respondents) are more likely to be morning people, wake up without an alarm, nap regularly and work in health or technology fields. Bed-makers also enjoy jazz music, watch House Hunters and romantic movies, and are adventurous, confident, sociable and high-maintenance.

Non-bed-makers on the other hand (40 percent of respondents), are more likely be night owls, snooze their alarm clocks in the morning and work in business or financial fields. They also enjoy rock music, watch Seinfeld and comedy movies and are characterized as shy, moody, curious and sarcastic.

Crazy, right?
