How late do you stay up?

I tend to go to be much later then normal people, sometimes as late as 2am, although my old body doesn’t like me that much when I do so, but apparently the later you stay up seems to have some correlation to how intelligent you are. Those with higher IQ’s tend to be nocturnal. I know this isn’t exactly techie, but we are a bunch of geeks, and to be a geek you have to be smart!

People with higher IQs are more apt to be nocturnal night-owls. Those with lower IQs tend to restrict their activities primarily to daytime.

People who prefer to go to bed early, and who are early-risers, demonstrate “morningness,” whereas those whose sleep patterns are shifted later demonstrate “eveningness.” Researchers say eveningness tends to be a characteristic of those with higher IQs.
