This is me, except I tend to usually sleep half an hour less.
I can function with ca 7 hours for the whole work week, but then I'm fucking done and have not much energy on the weekend.
I don't know how some people deal with much less regularly.
I think the people who do are really deep sleepers.
It's the quality not the quantity of the sleep that matters more.
I don't know if I'm typical or an exception, but I don't sleep a lot. Usually 5 to 6 hours per night, sometimes less. But when I sleep, I sleep very deeply (and I snore loudly, I'm sad to admit). There are shorter nights, sometimes, I'm somewhat of an insomniac.
But I've handled my insomnia by limiting my hours of sleep, that result in my being tired all the time, which makes me prone to fall asleep easily when the time comes. I usually wake up at 7-7:30 and go to bed around 1-1:30. Then I read, play phone games, or surf on facebook for a little while before getting tired. I'm a very stressed up person, and being tired makes me cooler...
I don't usually take naps, but I find myself enjoying that more and more, whenever this occurs (I would say once every 4 to 5 months), when I couldn't bear it a few years earlier.
Also, I often doze whenever I watch a movie. It's bothersome, but I've thought about it and concluded it's because I usually suspend my self-control whenever I watch a film. By letting myself go, I open myself to drowsiness, whereas I usually keep it away on other occasions...
