Living with narcolepsy: a personal journey

Sleepy Cartoons: Sleepy from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

with one comment



Sleepy fits in his naps anytime and anywhere he can, but none of the other dwarfs ever complains. Maybe that’s because he works just as hard in their diamond mine as the others, albeit in a more relaxed fashion. In fact, he’s so relaxed, and yawns so widely, that the resident housefly keeps buzzing into his mouth in hopes of finding a nice warm home. But even on the perpetual verge of a nap, Sleepy turns out to be twice as observant as his fellows when it most matters. Strangely goaded and prodded by the forest animals outside their mine, none of the dwarfs can figure out what’s going on until Sleepy yawns, “Maybe the old Queen’s got Snow White.” Thanks to Sleepy, the dwarfs are soon off to the rescue. It’s not the first cartoon the sleepy character is smart or helps carry the story forward. Skalman in the Swedish Comic does also have a key role in solving puzzles as the stories progress. Perhaps there is an idea here that both Sleepy and Skalman thinks about puzzles or life in general in more dept and so manages to contribute to the group. The Snow White and the Seven dwarfs (corporate) personality test describes how to leverage some of Sleepy’s strengths which is to remind him that personal reveries are often unconscious approaches to solving the problem, and the more that this can be brought back to the group, the more successful will the group’s efforts be. The dwarfs are successful in helping to rescue Snow White thanks to Sleepy.

In the personality test Sleepy primary mode of living is focused internally, dealing with things rationally and logically.

Sleepy’s reveries have an adventuresome spirit. They thrive on action, and are usually fearless. They are fiercely independent, needing to have the space to make their own decisions about their next step. They do not believe in or follow rules and regulations, as this would prohibit their ability to “do their own thing”. Sleepy types value privacy and sometimes keep important issues to themselves. Adaptable and spontaneous, they respond to what is immediately before them. Sleepy people avoid making judgments based on personal values.

I obviously had to take the test to see if I was Sleepy but to my surprise the result said I was Happy.
