For me, 8 1/2 hours seems the perfect amount of sleep, although I can do okay with 7 if need be. 5-6 hours affects me in not such a great way and I'm basically a zombie with anything less than that.

What about you?

I'm with you, I need my sleep and am jealous of people who don't. 8-9 is great. Can function on 7-71/2, but less than that not a pretty picture.

I love my sleep, but am a natural night-person who cannot turn off the lights until at least 12:30am.

I get 8-10 hours a night on the weekend, 5-6 hours during the weekday (always nap at work during lunch).

I'm not a morning person. I can sleep 12 hours on the weekend, and still feel like I want more. However, as long as I get 5 hours sleep I feel fine once I'm up. Less than that and I feel slightly dumbed down.

You took my answer. :lol:

I'm not a morning person, but I have to be at work at 8 am. Makes for a really fun morning. I always tell people I'm not really awake until 10 am.

I'm a night owl, so going to bed early means before midnight.

I've suffered from chronic insomnia for at least 30 years. I don't know how much sleep I get, but it isn't much. Of actual sleep, I'd say about 4 hours a night - not more. The rest of it is tossing and turning.

I have noticed that I like to sleep in 4 hour increments. So I need 8 hours of sleep but usually I get 6.5 to 7 because I would need to go to bed by 9:30 every night to get 8 hours and I just can't finish my day that early. I read that the normal person's sleep cycle takes 4 hours to complete so it makes sense that I prefer 4 hours or 8 hours. I find when I need a really good nap I will pass out and always always wake up 4 hours later.

This describes my sleep patterns too. So my answer is like the majority here - not enough

This.
I know I should sleep more during the week, but i simply can't finish everything I need to do before midnight.

Another night owl here. I try to shoot for 8 hours. Morning people are :EVILLE:

Nowadays I average about 7 hrs. per night, though it's sometimes less because I either can't go to sleep or I wake up and stay awake for a couple of hours. When I was younger, I got by on much less.

8 hours every night would be perfect--but most weeknights I settle for 7 or 7.5 hours. I get 8-9 hours on weekend nights.
