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.

"They now look to a single and splendid government of an aristocracy, founded on banking institutions, and moneyed incorporations under the guise and cloak of their favored branches of manufactures, commerce and navigation, riding and ruling over the plundered ploughman and beggared yeomanry." - Thomas Jefferson, 1826
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
