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.
