Anyone here a teenage short sleeper but your parents force you to sleep 8 hours AND make you nap 1-2 hours everyday?

Long sleeper here. I love my 9 h, there's nothing all that important to do at 4.30 for me anyway so who gives a crap.

I think the only way to "become" a short sleeper is with polyphasic sleep. I think with sleeping in one block you are limited by genetics. Whilst relative sleep quality may go up the total restorative effect will go down.

This is me. I’m one of these people. Well, not literally, but still. They seem to have forgotten that DEC2 is the proper term for it, though.

You people who think you are short sleepers because you sleep 5 hours a night don't really know what this genetic condition REALLY is. My normal habits were to sleep only once every other night for about 30 years of my life. Staying up 3 days instead of 2 was not a challenge, and I was once up for 4 1/2 days straight, and the only reason I slept then is that I started getting worried that something would happen to me like a stroke or a heart attack, even though I felt perfectly fine. Same thing for my father and his father, and his father. It is purely genetic.

I go to bed past 2, read for a while, get insomnia... fall asleep wake up at 7 or 7:30, on weekends I'll roll over and doze for another sleep cycle if I want... don't drink coffee, I drink tea sometimes. I'm going to bed now. Good night.

You're a very disciplined man, Squidward. But maybe you could learn a thing or two from Spongebob's carefree personality.

I am one of those people. I go to bed at 11pm and got up at 530am fully rested despite the fact I usually sleep two or three hours during that period. I work out every day for at lest two hours, walk everywhere, don't nap or drink coffee and I got great stamina and drive. Also, I'm 37.

Don't take this the wrong way, but I am jealous. I am so obsessed and angry about how sleep robs us of our lives that I can't help but constantly telling people that I long for the day when all humans are short sleepers. Nevertheless, it is good to hear about this from you.
