    Misleading... The study says getting eight hours sleep improves health and outlook, it doesn't say at what time these people get up/go to sleep.

    A lot of people I encounter in the day are boring conservative prudes. In contrast, most night people are chill, but have the proclivity to be irresponsible, untrustworthy, and have substance abuse issues. BTW, I'm a night-shifter, but sometimes work the day-shift.

    I'd have to agree on this for the most... I think it's because the night owls still need to get up early for work so their not getting enough sleep and are cranky!

    I am definitely a night owl, I get so much more energy at night time and am up most nights until between 2AM and 3AM and then up, much to my horror at 6AM to go for a run, the gym and be at work at around 8AM.

    I'll have to preface this: I am a morning person because when I'm up, I'm up. No rolling over, groggy, etc. I'm ready to go. The problem is, based on what I have had to do to meet deadlines, my day has moved from 7am-12pm to 8am-4am. Yes, quite a jump and not very sustainable but I've been at it for over a year, now.

    I do love morning but with my allergies they are such a pain in the ass it's usually noon by the time I feel alert and ready to go, so what's the point. Besides that, I just don't sleep all that much anyhow. :(

    They're saying you need 8 hrs of sleep to be a happy person. Why can't I be a night person and still get my 8 hrs of sleep? I just can't make my head wake up in the early morning :(

    Of course morning people are happier than night owls. It sucks being a "night shift" person, in a "day shift" world. It's 1:00 am, and I'm awake! Too bad I have to be at work by 8:00 am. If I could be allowed to do my job at this time, I could get my 8 hours of sleep.

    Edit: Here's a couple of things I always say:
    1. If God had wanted me to see the sun rise, he'd have ad it happen later in the day!
    2. Truly, I really do like seeing the sun rise, I just prefer it to happen right before bed!
