Do you prefer to watch a little television before bed? Or maybe you like to drink a little glass of scotch right before you get some Z’s? Well, whatever small action you take before bed it turns out it says a lot about your personality type.

In a survey of more than 1,000 people, Mattress Advisor looked at how our personalities, based on Myers-Briggs determination tests, impact our bedtime routines and the findings were quite interesting, to say the least.

The very orderly and logical person in your office loves a good hard liquor drink before bed on most nights.

The Mediator

This creative and free spirit doesn’t usually have a bedtime routine.

Clearly, people are doing some very different things before bed but what should be kept in mind that sleepy workers are estimated to cost employers $136 billion a year in health-related, lost productivity.
