    I'm a super-sleeper, and I can go for days at a time without sleep. I tend to usually average about 6 hours. I am capable of functioning on less, but I've tried doing it for longer periods. I start getting sort of mentally unbalanced, and I decided eventually, nahhhh, 6 hours is fine.

    I go to bed at about 1130 and get up at 630. Sometimes slightly ealier than 1130 but almost exactly 7 hours. Sometimes I go to bed earlier when I'm like... you know that random exhaustion hits.

    I get about 7 or 8 hours a night, depending on what time I go to bed. I need a good 10 hours in order to feel fully rested but I can function on very little sleep - albeit with some side effects like falling asleep on the bus or train.

    I'd say roughly 7-8 hours a night. Oddly I find it easier to wake up when I don't have work

    Anything below 6 hours is torture for me. I usually sleep around 8 hours. Sometimes when I can afford to sleep as long as I want I go for 10 hours straight.

    About six during the school year, because I have to wake up at five and can't usually fall asleep until around eleven.

    During the summer, I can usually meet eight hours.

    I try to sleep 7-8 hours every day, but sometime college stuff keeps me up late and keeps me so stressed I can't fall asleep.

    Anywhere between 2 and 10 hours, depending on when I fell asleep and whether or not insomnia is making me its bitch.

    My average is in the 5-6 hour range.

    I don't really have time for more than 6 hours of sleep :/
    Wish I could get 10 on a daily basis though, it sounds wonderful. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    Usually, when there's no school, I sleep for about more than 10 hrs. It's because I just don't want to get out of my bed yet and I'm so comfy and relaxed so I just go back to sleep. I love my bed. lol

    4-14, 4 is the least I have had, 14 is the most I have had (not including blacking out/passing out as sleeping).
    8-9.5 is normal in summer.
    5-9 is normal for schooltime, Sunday-Thursday; 11 on Saturday and any amount on Friday.
    I want to try a (custom) polyphasic sleep cycle, so I can sleep one (decimal) hour a day.

    I picked 7 because I feel like that would be my "average" but I have a hard time falling asleep quite often and only get 5 or 6 hours. On the flip side if I sleep 9 or more I'll get a migraine from "over sleeping"
