People who can not get up early are smarter


If you suffer bullying permanent because your family thinks you are too lazy not to get up early, find out: Satoshi Kanazawa and Kaja Perina, London psychologists, conducted an investigation in which they concluded that people with nighttime habits registered higher levels of intelligence than those who are predominantly daytime.

In their study called Why Night Owls Are More Intelligent (Why Night Owls Are Smarter?) Scholars concluded that people with a higher level of intelligence prefer nighttime habits, getting up less early in the morning and going to bed later at night.

The adaptation of humans to nocturnal habits evolved throughout history, since-as is to be expected-our ancestors performed mostly daytime tasks while the sun lasted. Little by little this was modified and nowadays we carry out tasks and activities indifferently of the time of day in question, because we have artificial light that allows us visibility under the various conditions.

The authors also resorted to National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health of Add Health, in the United States, in which it was observed that acquiring more advanced evolutionary preferences, such as being able to assimilate nocturnal habits, is a capacity of the most intelligent beings.

On the other hand, there is evidence that, at night, people could develop their creativity more, as explained by Marina Giamprieto, a researcher at the University of the Sacred Heart, in Milan, who says that being the least conventional nocturnal habits diurnal, can foster the ability to find alternative and original solutions.

The important thing, in any case, is restful rest, as stated by other research published in the Cambridge Brain Sciences -platform used by health professionals and researchers to present evaluations of cognitive functions in people-, since those who have had A dream of quality responds better to cognitive demands, and the lack of it worsens memory performance, so sleep has been said!
