Neither, but I prefer days with more dark than sunlight.

The more I think about it, the more I believe it's because the night is less stimulating, ie less distracting. And there are a lot less people around!

I'm more of a morning person. I'm way more productive before noon and when I get up after 9.30, it feels like my entire day is ruined. I also don't like working when it's dark.
Nights scare me - there are so many unexplainable sounds around and it feels like something is watching me
There was one fantastic summer when I would get up at 4 am and play an on-line video game. Everybody else was asleep so all the monsters were mine :twisted:

Funny, I seem to turn nocturnal sometimes. But I have about the same level of alertness all day or night long.

I cannot function properly until late morning, makes it tricky for me to have a job that starts at 8:30am

I feel good at both morning and night. It's the afternoons I hate the most.

I'm a bit of an evening person. I like to get up between 9 and 10 AM and go to bed between midnight and 1 AM. I'm at my best physically from around noon to around 4 PM (that's when I clean my apartment and run errands on the weekends) and I'm at my best mentally from around 6 to 10 PM (that's when I like to read, study, or work on a college paper). I can adjust to an earlier sleep schedule (on days I work I get up at 7:30 AM and go to bed at 11 PM, I work part-time as a cook at a preschool from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM during the weekdays) as long as I can get some caffeine in me.

I'm an evening/night person. Definitely not an early morning person, I hate waking up earlier than 7AM. (The following is typical, not constant.) I get up between 9AM and 11AM, and go to bed between 1AM and 3AM. I'm wide awake around 2PM then get tired between 6PM and 8PM and wide awake again between 9PM and 12AM.

I will plagiarize my response.

It takes me hours to wake up in the morning. At night, I have lots of energy and I don't want to go to bed. When I make myself go to bed, I fall asleep right away only when I take Lunesta. If I don't have to follow a schedule, I become nocturnal--I'll wake up at sunset and go to bed at sunrise. Maybe some people are naturally nocturnal?

Maybe I can get a job with the NY Times.

I am very much naturally nocturnal. When we are doing night ops, all the "early birds" complain but I love it. I laugh at everyone who gets tired and sleepy in the evening, when I am starting to feel my best. My optimum performance is between 2100 to midnight, and the worst between 0500 and 0800. I have extreme difficulty falling asleep before midnight, especially if I haven't been awake at least twice as long as I slept the night prior.

There is quite a possibility I have delayed sleep phase syndrome. If I'm not at work, and can fall into my own schedule, I'll tend to sleep from 0400 to noon, and be lively and alert the 16 awake hours. In fact, I do better with six hours of sleep from 0400 to 1000, than I do with ten hours from 2000 to 0600.

I hate morning people. They piss me off. My brain simply does not work before lunch. Then sometime in the afternoon it kicks into overdrive and stays that way for a long time.

If I skip a night of sleep to try to get "tired enough" to sleep the following night, it doesn't work. Instead I feel like crap all the next day, until about 2100 that evening when I become as alert and functional as ever, and again unable to sleep until the small hours of the morning.


You sound alot like me...Sun goes down and i perk up again.Even if deprived of sleep already...

More of a morning person, It doesn't matter what time I go to bed, I'll never wake up past 10AM.. and that is usually on the weekends when I am out and about. But I'll usually get up around the 8-9AM range if I go to bed at a decent hour anyways.

So I guess you could say I'm a little of both... cause I can go to sleep waaay late, and still wake up early... but I take naps during the day sometimes.
