Many experts around the world say that sleeping with your sock on has nothing to do with being cold or hot – it’s all related with your personality. Some people are protectors, and others look for protection. You should know that there are two types of people in the world: those who wear socks to bed and whose who prefer to sleep barefoot. Well, the real truth is that some find it impossible to sleep if their feet are bare, they feel cold and have to jump out of a bed in the middle of the night to put on their favorite socks. Others experience the exact opposite — they find it very uncomfortable to have socks on once they’re in bed; it gives them a stuffy feeling, and they feel excessive heat and discomfort. And now, you probably think that this is just a habit, but the medical experts have discovered that it actually reveals more about you than you could possibly have imagined. They’ve discovered that this can reveal a lot about your personality. Here’s what you need to know:
- Sock wearers
The experts say that if you wear socks to bed it’s probably because you’re very sensitive to cold. You should also know that this may be related to different aspects of your physical makeup, including the thickness of your skin and your body’s metabolic rate. People who have fast metabolism usually feel hot and sweaty all the time, whereas those with a slow metabolism and poor blood circulation feel cold more than other people. But, you should know that being sensitive to cold is a condition associated with your physical and biological characteristics, it also has a lot to do with your perception of space and temperature. Thus, two people with very similar physical characteristics can perceive the external climate in very different ways. As we said, many people feel the need to sleep with their socks – and this means that they usually seek to be protected. If you’re one of them, chances are that you adore cozy places and always seek to establish deep and very intimate relationships with others. You’re a touchy-feely kind of person and you don’t mind sharing your personal space — cuddles and hugs make you happy.
- Barefoot sleepers
But, if you can sleep with your socks on, and just the thought of your feet covered at night makes you feel uncomfortable – then it’s probably because you have either a faster metabolism than others, good blood circulation, or thicker skin. You have a biological predisposition to preserve and generate heat and therefore you don’t feel the need to cover your feet. But, you should know that this it’s not just physical. Being less sensitive to cold is also related to the way you interact with others. The experts say that if you sleep barefoot, then you’re probably a very independent person. You greatly value your personal space and come into contact with others only when you’re willing to interact. In a relationship you tend to take a protective role, you’re honest and sincere and sometimes challenging, but you know how to take good care of people who mean a lot to you.
Note: don’t get us wrong. It doesn’t matter if you love the feeling of having your feet warm and snug in your socks or if you enjoy the freedom of being barefoot in bed. The most important thing is that you have a good night sleep.
