Night Owls

Night Owls Are More Creative, Says Study
Being a "Night Owl" myself, I had a long rant involving personal experience to accompany this link. But I have a long to-blog queue already, so you get just the link. I do think that "living 2 to 3 hours offset" (as the study put it) does give you more "alone time." And "alone time" to me equals time to concentrate and time to explore "the edges." YMMV.

    Trackback didn't work! I've commented on this here:

    Another interesting nature vs. nurture conundrum. I can easily stay up until 3 in the morning because it's in the late afternoon evening when the ideas seem to flow best. In the morning I hate getting up because it means leaving the movie-marathon of dreamland.

    Do you sense a causality between alone-time and creativity or does the former merely present more opportunity? I do find it is much easier to work on a project—whether it be art or wordsmithing—when no one else is wandering around the house.
