    This is a pretty cool test to find out your circadian rhythm. I got a score of 53 which means I'm neither a morning nor an evening person. lol. And my natural bedtime is around 11:45 which sounds about right. I ideally go to bed around midnight. What say you?

    58, also intermediate, not exactly a morning or evening person. I'm pretty sure I get too little sleep.

    All things normal, I'm usually a moderate morning person with a score of 67. I don't usually wake up to alarms, and although I will set them as a precaution, I'm known for catching early morning flights and waking up within minutes of the alarm going off. I can literally tell myself I need to be up at 4:30am and will be up before then.

    58. Seemed near the mark, poor sleeper. I've been an early riser without an alarm since 12, usually 4:30 am. We won't even talk about "CP Time" (fighting words)...

    I scored 49. Even though I'm moderate I'd rather start my day around 9/10 am and get shit out the way.

    Your score is 50.

    YOUR MORNINGNESS-EVENINGNESS TYPE IS CONSIDERED TO BE INTERMEDIATE.

    Morningness-eveningness scores range from 16-86. Scores of 41 and below indicate "evening types." Scores of 59 and above indicate "morning types." Scores between 42-58 indicate "intermediate types."


    16-30 31-41 42-58 59-69 70-86

    Your score allows us to estimate when your brain begins to produce the nighttime hormone melatonin*, which normally occurs before you are ready to fall asleep.

    WE ESTIMATE THAT YOUR MELATONIN ONSET OCCURS AT ABOUT 9:45 pm.

    *saliva concentration of 3 picograms per milliliter

    The time you are first able to fall asleep easily (assuming that you keep a regular sleep schedule) is related to the time that your brain begins to produce melatonin in the evening or at night.

    WE ESTIMATE THAT YOUR "NATURAL" BEDTIME IS AT ABOUT 11:45 pm.

    This information can be put to important use if you are trying to organize your daily schedule to best match with your circadian rhythm type. It is especially useful if you want to use light therapy to shift your rhythms in a desired direction (morning light shifts rhythms earlier; evening light shifts them later).

    Appropriate timing of therapy can help you wake up more alert for a normal work day, reduce insomnia when you are trying to get to sleep, accommodate to shift work, prepare for (or recover from) long distance air travel, and even correct abnormal sleep patterns such as the Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome. Below, we specify two well-tested applications:

    Light therapy is the first-line treatment for Seasonal Affective Disorder, eliminating or reducing the need to take drugs. People suffering with major depressive episodes in winter should seek supervision of treatment by a health professional knowledgeable about managing the symptoms. The personalized advice we give you here is based on a large clinical trial at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. That clinical trial used a 10,000 lux fluorescent light box with an overhead diffusing screen, for 30 minutes daily. (Other light box types might require longer exposure duration, or might be less effective. You should ask your doctor to help you make adjustments to maximize the antidepressant effect.)

    If you are considering 10,000 lux light therapy to combat winter depression, your morningness-eveningness score indicates that YOUR OPTIMUM 30-MINUTE LIGHT TREATMENT SHOULD BEGIN AT 6:30 am.

    You can try the same light timing, 6:30 am, to combat oversleeping and ease of rising in morning, whether or not you have winter depression.

    Our recommendation provides only a general guideline. You may need to adjust the timing based on your experience during treatment. If you sleep longer than 7 hours per night, this schedule will require you to wake up earlier than usual for greatest benefit. Some people compensate by going to bed earlier, while others feel fine with shorter sleep.

    52 Intermediate. I am a morning person for sure but I also stay up late doing random shit. Primarily a habit formed in Graduate School. However, I have become quite the post-work 5:30PM Napper.

    DAMN everybody's a nightowl! I'm the only one in this post whose alone? I got 72! I LOVE being up in the mornings. Ever since I was little, I just loved the feeling of being the first person up in the house. It's always been this way, and I still feel that way. And as far as work is concerned, I just like getting stuff out the way. Now if I could only figure out which home workouts to do because I'm 115 lbs, and I want to gain SOME weight, not a lot, and turn it into muscle. But yeah, I love the morning time .

    Did not need a test to figure that one out - have always been a morning type, even when I was younger and closed the bars, I still was up and about by 6 at the latest.

    For me the interesting question has always been why do I wind up dating evening people? Not that it has been an insurmountable problem, but it does pose challenges, especially in the early days.

    If others have experience with a similar mismatch I would be interested in hearing how they deal with it.

    My score is 41 "moderate evening." I'm not a morning person at all which is ironic that I currently work at job that requires that I get up at 2:30am so I can clock in between 3:30 and 4am. I hate it. I miss my old job. I didn't have to come in until 10am.

    53.. that sounds about right. I can function either way depending on circumstances. I prefer evening or late night workouts. I will stay up late watching movies, but I typically start getting sleepy between 11 and 12 30. No problems getting up.... love rolling over to dude in the morning (but that's a different story).
