Questionnaire results from more than 350 people showed that morning types are attracted to concrete information rather than abstract thinking and like to rely on logic rather than intuition. They tend to be introverted, self-controlled, and eager to make a good impression on others. In contrast, evening types have a far more creative outlook on life, are more prepared to take risks, are more independent and nonconforming, and are a little impulsive. (
I am definitely a lark. (Writing this at 4:30 AM, and for me, that comes at the beginning of the day, not the end.) When you reach the point of having a 9:00 PM, or earlier, bedtime, you're definitely in the range where such habits seem quite eccentric in a thirty-year-old man.
And this fits pretty well. I am mostly oriented towards the Near kind of thinking and values, and towards an almost bee-like devotion to whatever my current set of habits happen to be. But at the same time, I also identify with the Owls who will stay up late, party, and think creatively; I can be like them, and such friendships as I form are likely to be with them. So yeah, I have owl tendencies, but the lark in me usually wins.
That's interesting stuff.
I used to be an owl, but as I grow older I find myself becoming more and more of a morning person.
I guess that conforms with your research.
Ha Ha. Turns out the night owls have higher intelligence than the morning larks: http://www.bakadesuyo.com/w...
Probably explains why they don't know what they don't know and can't get their head around logic like:
Coming in after traffic and working later in the day is logically equivalent to coming in earlier in the day and leaving earlier.
And yet the come-in-early types think they have the moral high ground.Probably because they are less smart methinks.
I'm fine with there being different types of people. I'm not fine with the holier-than-thou arrogance of the morning types who do no more than anyone else but believe they do. I've often wondered whether the people who take themselves seriously are faking it or they really believe in their own bullshit.
I am a conformist, risk averse loser, and an owl :).
I am definitely a morning type - http://andreasmoser.wordpre... - but I am still a non-conforming, independent risk-taker.
