Mom always made you make your bed, but do you do it as a grownup? Now that no one is hounding you to do so?

Well. a new survey finds if you’re the kind of person who makes their bed every morning, you’re probably a morning person, have more sex, listen to jazz and like romantic movies. But, if you don’t make your bed? It means you’re most likely a night owl, listen to rock music, like Seinfeld reruns and are sarcastic.

The survey also found people who make their beds tend to exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet and like to cook. Those who don’t are more likely to identify as introverts, are more likely to snore and like funny movies.

42 percent of those who make their bed said their significant other makes them more likely to do it.  33 percent said it would be a turn-off if a potential partner didn’t make their bed in the morning.

And, here are some more traits:


  • Morning person
  • Wakes up without an alarm
  • Has sex three times a week
  • Average nap is 43 minutes
  • Most likely works in health or technology fields
  • More likely to enjoy jazz music, watch House Hunters and romantic movies
  • Personality traits: adventurous, confident, sociable and high-maintenance


  • Night person
  • Snoozes alarm before getting up
  • Has sex twice a week
  • Average nap is 50 minutes
  • Most likely works in business or finance
  • More likely to enjoy rock music, watch episodes of Seinfeld and comedy movies
  • Personality traits: shy, moody, curious and sarcastic
