Demos,

Do you stay refreshed if you get 4-6 for an entire week or is it once in a while? I find that if I get only 3-4 hours of sleep I can wake up pretty refreshed and function pretty well during the day, but I cant survive for a week like that, 3 days in a row and it starts to catch up with me.

I usually get 7-8 a night but add one more for while I'm at school.
8 is definitely enough for me any more just a bonus.

nice poll, it really works too...

i require enough sleep. enough sleep is however much i feel like, such as 24 hours, or 18 hours, or 2 hours, or 30 minutes.

I usually get around 6-7 hours of sleep on schoolnights and I feel fine. During weekends, I end up with around 4-5 hours and I still feel fine. So my answer would be No.. :)

5 on average
6 if i'm lucky
7 is always nice
8 is a blessing
9+ i haven't done for years

i've dealt with it reasonably, but my performance in the gym has suffered, significantly :(

I can last about 1 week with 3-4 hours a night. after that long I can't think straight. I can last about 4 days with 2 or less hours a night. I usually need 8-10 to be in good shape
