Morning is for the logical, night-time the creative

Been going through freelance journalist Clive Thompson’s blog today — he’s a regular writer for Wired and New York magazine, two excellent publications.

A couple of months ago, he wrote about a study that identifies morning people as logical, and night-owls as creative. I can’t say I disagree 🙂

I like to think of myself as creative, and I know I’ve always been a night person more than a morning person, so this study certainly agrees with me. But on the other hand, I’ve known lots of creative people who get up early to work, and I imagine there’s some mathematicians who love to work through the night, so it hardly seems conclusive.

But it’s always good to see a study that seems to mirror experience.
