Apparently people that stay up late and sleep in tend to be more intelligent on average than the early to bed early to rise types.

Also, they have more energy by the end of the day.

Early risers seem to slowly wake up through the morning and have decent energy levels halfway through the day, but they crash early in the night and their energy levels plummet in preperation for sleep. Night owls gain momentum faster in the morning and maintain their energy levels far later into the night.

 

Just to clarify, I am not calling you a dim witted mope.

Just sharing the wealth of useless information that resides within my braincage.

I've heard this before, but how do you explain my terrible grades back in high school? And I still get bad grades once in a while, now in college.

 

But really tho, I tend to get more creative during the late-night time, so that might explain why.

I'm not sure if I agree with that. Studies like that just make me think it's just a way for one group of people to go "Ha! We're more intelligent" to another group and feel better about themselves. I think it's not what time you sleep or get up, but instead, what you do with those waking hours. What you spend your time doing seems more like a indication of whether or not you're intelligent.

I believe it was realised through impartial studies, not by one group of the other.

IQ is tested and sleeping habits are recorded, then they take a look at the numbers and see what they see.

Granted that isn't a perfect process, and I am not saying that those sleeping habits cause higher IQs, but perhaps those with higher IQs tend to acquire those sleeping habits. I have also gathered that being in a dark/dimly lit environment is said to increase brain function and processing speed. So maybe that has something to do with it.


It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.
