There is link between mental illness and sleep disturbance. One example following:

BPD was significantly associated with all 3 chronic sleep problems assessed, as well as with the consequences of poor sleep. The magnitude of the association between BPD and sleep problems was comparable to that for Axis I disorders traditionally associated with sleep problems. BPD symptoms interacted with chronic sleep problems to predict elevated social/emotional, cognitive, and self-care impairment.

Chronic sleep disturbances and borderline personality disorder symptoms.

Simple question; I am wondering if there is a link between personality types or features and sleep disorders? Some examples being intelligence, creativity, extroverted, introverted.. the list is endless.

Is there any research on this?
