Are You an Early Bird, a Night Owl, or Something in Between?


Have you ever encountered one of those people who's as chipper as can be at 7 in the morning? If you're an example of these everyday superheroes, able to haul yourself out of bed while the sky is still inky black, kudos to you. You're not relatable to folks who need wake-up calls and do long walks at the beach as the sun begins to descend. Perhaps you're not awake when the rooster begins to crow because you've been pulling an all-nighter. Are you too late or too early to catch worms? We're not sure either, but this dark mode comes pretty naturally to you, and it can be very productive. Where exactly do you sit on the early bird to night owl continuum? That's the question we'll get to the bottom of with this quiz. It's purely for fun, and it'll settle the matter once and for all.

Science lesson

Yes, you need to go to sleep

Sleep is a vital aspect of human life, accounting for approximately one-third of our lifetime. It serves as a natural healer, fortifying the immune system and giving the heart a much-needed break. Despite its importance, sleep remains a subject of ongoing research, with experts delving into its various facets, from the role of REM sleep in memory formation to the impact of sleep deprivation on overall health. While some may dismiss sleep as a mere biological necessity, its significance extends far beyond that. Skipping sleep can lead to severe health consequences, including increased risk of heart attacks and impaired cognitive function. Moreover, sleep isn't just a human-centric issue; even animals and insects can experience sleep deprivation, with detrimental effects on their well-being. In a world where the hustle culture often glorifies sleeplessness, it's crucial to remember that quality sleep is not a luxury but a necessity.  

Did you know?

Are successful people early birds or night owls?

There are examples of both. Some of the most successful people in the world have early morning routines that sound insane to the average Joe. They wake up well before 6 a.m., i.e., before or when the sun wakes up. Michelle Obama works out at 4:30 in the morning, and CEO Jack Dorsey wakes up at 5:30 to meditate and exercise. Jennifer Aniston also wakes up at 4:30 a.m. and drinks hot water and lemon before doing anything else, while Kate Hudson takes an ice bath to shock her system into activity. Viola Davis gets up at 5:30 a.m. to work out with her husband and have a bonding chat during a post-exercise jacuzzi dip. What about the night owls? Reddit co-founder, AKA Serena Williams's husband, Alexis Ohanian, goes to bed around 2 a.m. and stirs at 10. Highly esteemed writers like Gustave Flaubert and James Joyce were late risers, too, preferring to wake up at 10 a.m.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
