3-7 hours. Mind you I'm a super light sleeper, hypervigilant, have trouble quieting my mind and have PTSD heh although if I get 5+ hours I feel like a million bucks.

8ish hours. When I am busy or stressed it's less than that, but I tend to get 2 sleep cycles in and that's close to 8.
I wake up around 7-9am naturally unless I am exhausted.
Note: some times I get up and read a few pages or check my email in between the 2 sleep cycles.

I had many years of extreme sleep dep, so I am pretty serious about it now

I used to think that if only I could get 8 hours of sleep a night, I would feel well-rested. Now that I can set my own schedule, I probably average 6-7 hours, which seems to be enough. Perhaps the stress levels of my life, having gone down, now require me less sleep.
I wish I could find time for 8 hours a night. I love to sleep. But for now, bedtime is 11-11:30pm, up at 4:45am. Weekends I will usually do one 10 hour sleep, my way of catching up...
My sleep is all over the place these days. 6-7 hours on "normal" nights, or only 3-4 hrs when I'm thinking about, or rather over thinking stuff. I wish my mind had a switch button.
I'm definitely polyphasic or whatever word you would like to use. I sleep and wake every 2-3 hours through the night until morning when I just lay there for the last hour waiting for the alarm to go off. This is usually from 11-12 at night until wake at 7AM. About 1-2x/week I take an hour nap during my lunch. I am never dragging ass or feeling tired while working or playing though. Its just how my body works I suppose.
I am perpetually asleep
