The study needs to link this data to how blind people lose their circadian cycle.

Yeah, it's unfortunate though for people like us, that the norm in society is morning. I am a lot more social and willing to do things with friends in the night, than during the day, and as such that transfers into my work as well. I try to fake enthusiasm as much as possible with my clients, but it's hard as during the day I am just not functioning normally. It's as if you took a normal person and told them to meet with a client at 3am and be super enthusiastic about it. They would be drained and act almost drugged lol. That's me during the day, well to a point, I've gotten better over the time of acting the way people expect me to act. But, it's difficult haha.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I was going to mention that there is an evolutionary advantage to humans having different circadian time rhythms. The video explains it better though, at least up to the Neolithic Revolution. Even after that it is highly advantageous for some of the population to be more active at night. Previously it was flock protection from predators and military applications (night watches). These days, there's still highly critical jobs that are better suited for night people, such as power plants and still military applications.

There's a lot of societally frowned upon traits that are still highly advantageous in certain applications and fields. I'm pretty much the trifecta of everything society hates, night person, introverted, and a generalist. Those three behavioral traits also occur frequently together. Fewer people are night people which means social interaction is typically at a minimum and you need to do several things that many others ('specialists') would typically do individually during the day.

Can't win the genetic lottery all the time and sometimes you're just plain screwed. lachen.gif

Glad to see that I am not the only person. And its amazing how you guys outlined pretty much the exact same hours. I am lucky yo have finally landed a job where I don't need to keep regular office hours. Can work from 10p or 11p to 5pm and continue work at night if I have to.

This needs to be more recognized in society so that you can do your best performance at your own personal peak hours. I hope that society leans towards that in the future as everything I do in business relies on technology and tools like Slack to keep everyone connected regardless od time of day.

Where do those of us who only need a bare minimum of sleep to function fall on this? I can operate on four hours without issues.

Who wants to start a CRISPR genetic editing company that is going to ruin the entire coffee industry?

They should give the nobel prize back becaused their research is incomplete.

How these "scientists" explain what they pretend these genes do, for example the time cycle of a person who can change it at will ? meaning that person can be a "night owl" like how some say they are here, or a day person like the majority of folks, where's the science in that , i wonder.

The proof of this is myself (and there are others i bet) I used to work for companies that had night shifts and other companies that only had daytime shifts, if i was on night shift, my sleep during the day would be the same as if i would be sleeping during the night if i was on a day shift !

Most importantly, i would go to sleep in the morning, wake up after 6-7 hours and do my thing full of energy until 7-8 AM the next morning without worries.

If i had a week working all day, i would switch immediately to sleeping at 8-9 PM in the evening and i would sleep like a baby then be ready for DAY working without worries all that week.

after recently graduating college, i was job searching for 3 months. My sleep schedule went off the rails and i was staying up until 5am and waking up at 2pm. Once i landed my job, i was almost shocked how quickly my body went back to the sleep at 11pm wake at 7am schedule.

What it was for me, is that while i was job searching, i spent nearly my entire day sitting at my desk, not being active, not really working much. But once i got my job, even though i'm still sitting at a desk on a computer, i'm using much more of my brain for work and getting up and talking with coworkers and such. Just these little things really help me in being able to fall asleep by 11pm. Heck, i'm in bed most nights by 9pm just because of how tired i am lol.

But yeah, i thought i was like most of you, destined to be a night person. But here i am, only 1 month after starting my new job, loving my new "normal" sleep schedule. So for those of you who feel stuck as a night person, there is hope

I've been this way for at least a decade, though, maybe even longer. School or not, job or not, bad sleeping habits or good... I always seem to be more alert around 8 pm - 2 am. As a result I like staying up pretty late.
