According to a study to be published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences, there’s more to the sleep than being a night owl or morning person. In fact, experts now say that there are four different sleep personality types. Knowing where you fall on the personality type sleep spectrum can help you get a more restful sleep!
In addition to night owls and morning people, afternoon types have their own unique sleep rhythm, according to the study. Afternoon-ers have energy dips in the morning and evening, while their energy tends to peak between noon and early evening, Insider reports. Conversely, if you’re a napper, you tend to get drowsy between 11 am and 3 pm, and are energized in the mornings and at night.
O. But there is more!
Arcady Putilov, a specialist in biomedical systems and sleep medicine, while most people seem to primarily fall into the night owl or morning lark chronotype categories, ‘woodcocks’ and ‘swifts’ show even more variation. While woodcocks are tired pretty much all the time, swifts feel energized from the moment they wake up until their head hits the pillow at night!
