This will be very subjective and you wont get a definitive answer as some need more then others. I need about 9 to run at 100% but on 8 hours i can still function fine. I know other people who feel groggy if they sleep longer then 7 hours.

I get six. But im good with about five. They say every two hours your awake you need one hour of sleep. Everyone is different.

They did a test in some university on the effects of sleep. They kept some test subjects up as long as they could and the effects were as you of course know. Lack of concentration, weakness, groggy, mood swings. BUT after 1 night sleep they were back to normal.
I think humans started sleeping when it turned dark because we could not function in the wild when it was dark it was to dangerous so we stayed idol. However no one really knows what sleep is for. The right ammount of sleep is all mental and from person to person.

A few weeks ago, I started a thread/poll on how much sleep people get, amazing the research we study before posting.

Normally, if you have no trouble sleeping, you should wake up the first time you open your eyes in the morning. This is when your body tells you it had enough sleep, has fully recovered and is ready to go for another day. Sleeping past that point is usually counter productive.
For most people, it is between 7 to 9 hours.
Try it for a couple of weeks. Wake up as soon as you open your eyes the first time, you'll see you have way more energy to go through your days.
I'll try to dig up some articles explaining the science behind that.

Because you are oversleeping.....try 8 hrs a day. I use to sleep anywere from 9 to 12 hrs a day. I was lazy and had no energy. Now that I sleep from 6-8 hours my energy levels are threw the roof.

I get 7.5 every night, then after my PPWO meal I have an hour nap. Works like a charm.

whats up with these poles about sleep...It's a proven fact that the "average" human needs 8 hours to function properly...
