Does what type of brain you have an influence on which side of the bed you sleep on? According to new research, people who sleep on the left side of the bed consider themselves more left-brained and people who sleep on the right side of the bed consider themselves more right-brained.

The new statistic emerged in a new study of 2,000 people, which found that those who sleep on the left side are more likely to prefer old music and drama films, whereas right side of the bed sleepers prefer rock music and action flicks.

The stats also came out for political affiliation, as left-wingers tend to sleep on the left side of the bed, and right wingers tend to sleep on the right side of the bed. The survey, also revealed right-siders tend to prefer wine over beer, whereas left-siders are the opposite.
