Science says night owls might be more intelligent… take that early risers you idiots.
A scientific study with a totally unbiased title of; ‘Why Night Owls Are More Intelligent’ claims that I’m loads better than those weirdos who get up and do stuff in the morning.
Finally. All I need now is some other scientists to invent a time machine so I can post this study to my mum and all my secondary school teachers. I’d invent one myself but I haven’t had a coffee yet and it’s nearly time for my second nap of the day.
According to The Mirror the writers of the study, Satoshi Kanazawa and Kaja Perina, even say that hitting the ‘snooze’ button on your alarm clock means you’re probably an intellectual.
By this test I’m on tract for a Nobel Prize in Astrophysics because I’m a six snoozes kind of man. I even set my alarm early so I can snooze it out an extra couple of times, because I’m a regular Einstein.
Apparently being able to choose to snooze means you’re super smart because you’ve adapted to modern life and become in tune with a new invention.
If you think this is just a one off another study reported on by Red Online also backs up the claims.
That study from The University of Southampton also found that:
People who went to bed after 11pm and got up after 8am earned more money and enjoyed a happier lifestyle.
So next time someone is trying to tell you to get out of bed early, let them know you’re focusing on making more money and increasing your happiness.
