    I find it near impossible to copy normal peoples sleeping patterns, so after some reading I came across some studies about people who stay up later at night being smarter....

    Here's a well written article (loads more on Google) -
    http://theweek.com/article/index/209165/night-owls-vs-morning-people-whos-smarter

    Simply put man kind is suppose to go asleep when its dark. Its in our programming from the stone ages, but people who stay up late at night are supposed to be "more evolved" and thus more bright than early sleepers.

    Would any black hatters agree with that?

    Crack heads, smack heads and meth heads tend to stay up all night. So I disagree.

    You realize that's because they're high or strung out, not because they're just choosing to stay up late for shits and giggles, right?

    in the article this is the other side of the stone...

    Quote

    Is there any advantage to being a morning person?
    Early risers tend to be more conscientious, persistent, and apt to cooperate, says van den Broek, a self-described morning person. They also "cope better with academic requirements and receive better grades."

    Guess it cuts both ways...

    I'm here after a series of 7-8 days with very very less sleep hours and feeling awful. First days where mega productive but last 2 days it gets really hard. Your mind simply goes wrong on a lot of things if you don't give it sleep.

    They choose to get cracked up at night time, therefore choosing to stay awake.

    I need to read more about this.

    While those who sleep less and work till dawn have many things going on, I agree with that, unfortunately... (to quote from the article):

    Perhaps because they have many goals / dreams, not easily satisfied... but their ability to cope with stress is not that much better.

    If they can focus and get things done, the more time they spend on it, the quicker they are going to accomplish it. But unfortunately this is often the difficult part. Most people stay up late but not productive at all. In that case, it's better to rest and wake up afresh with less stress. That is key to enjoy life.

    most rags to riches stories involve the person getting up at 4 am and not so much staying up until 4 am.


    getting out of bed early doesn't help or hurt learning. you are not smarter because you stay up late or wake up early. its that the people who are able to get out of bed and get thier day started are also the ones who are likely to be more diligent in their studies.

    And regarding that study i can see myself in those words, i don't have any addiction problems (i can't even smoke, the cigars are awful), but i am drinking from time to time.
    I can't really stay up more than 36 hours, even 24 hours are like a nightmare to me, and as someone said in here it's all about YOU. What you decide as a person to do it's your opinion and your life, take responsibility.
    Maybe you can be influenced but if you really want to succeed there's nothing that should be in your way, it's usually just you being lazy.

    Never you mind.
    Always done all nighters as a child. Often stayed up till 5am on schooldays without my parents knowledge from the age of 7 upwards. ( Having a TV in your own bedroom was such a luxury at that age ) But now find myself going to bed at 11pm-ish to get up at 6am for work.

    So I lived my early years as a night owl ( little sleep at that and functioned fine ) and now get up at 6am even on days off!

    I'm still a dumbass. :)
