Early Bird or Night Owl?

If you’ve seen my recent posts on Facebook, you’ve noticed I’m not a morning person. I grumble even if I sleep until mid-morning. Have you ever noticed how the world seems to be biased in favor of morning people? Most work days start around 8 or 9 am, unless you have some really horrid job that begins earlier. There’s always the graveyard shift, although when I worked those hours I wasn’t any happier to wake up. It’s hard to get rested when you sleep during the day. Or, maybe there’s a third group–vampires perhaps?

There are always early bird sales, but how many night owl sales do you see? Come to think of it, what happened to moonlight madness sales?

Tests tell you the benefits and hindrances of each group, but they don’t seem to agree. In that case, I’ll pick and choose and say night owls are more creative, richer, smarter, and have better social lives. Do you find your brain functioning better at a certain time? Do you wake up cheerful or grumpy? If you aren’t sure if you’re a day or night person, take this quiz. How do your results compare to what you thought about yourself?

  1. Hi Ari,
    I’m definitely a night owl. In a perfect world I’d sleep until 9-10 in the morning, drink a couple of gallons of coffee, and start my day 🙂 Seriously, I do all my best writing from 9-12 at night. The house is quiet and my creativity, such as it is, flows better then.
    Great post!

  2. I’m in between. I often sleep late but only because I have such insomnia at night *LOL* In a perfect world, I’d get up at 8, have coffee, and hit the office. That never happens. Too many “must do’s” fill my days.

  3. I’m a night owl for sure. Because I’m retired, I can choose my favorite hours. So… I usually go to bed between 12 – 1 am and get up at 8 am. and use the morning to either write or edit. For some reason I have an internal clock that wakes me up each morning so I seldom set an alarm. Then every third or fourth day, I sleep in and do a catch up. I love this life of not working :-)))))))
