How do I know what type of sleeper I am?

The best way to gauge what type of sleeper you are is to think about how you fall asleep and wake up. If you wake up in the same position that sent you off to dreamland, that position is your type of sleeper. If you didn't wake up in the same position, you're a combination sleeper.
