    I tried sleeping 4 hours twice a day, and it felt like I slept 4 hours.

    I'm not a morning person either - my brain doesn't function properly for the first hour or 2 after I've woken up. Asking me questions, telling me things I'm supposed to remember or generally trying to have a conversation with me at such times will result in fragmented, nonsensical responses.

I prefer to teach night classes, when I'm at my prime. It also allows me to keep the schedule I like best: staying up until 3 or 4, sleeping until noon or later.
    This.
    and my sleep cycle fluctuates both in terms of duration, frequency and time slots.

    I'm out before my head hits the pillow.

    It is somewhat irritatin to have to wake up before 8am, which seems to be my body's notion of "early". Anything before that hour causes me to feel very sleepy upon awakening.

    I always had problems going to sleep for as long as I can remember. I have memories of just lying in bed for hours trying to sleep as a kid, only to be able to around 2-3. (then wake up at 6 for school). I work a late job now, and my sleep schedule sits comfortably at 2-3am until 10-11am.
    Yep, that is me too. I sometimes wish we had 30hr days. I have a hard to falling asleep, and hard time waking up. I get very irritable and cranky when I get too little sleep. Any time I have to get up earlier than normal or for something like say catch a flight, I have an even harder time, stressing that I might not wake up.

    I also have trouble going to bed early.

    Even with me dragging on my 4:30am wake-up time with my current job, I often don't go to bed until 12-1am. Not good. It's not like I don't want to go to bed, I just tend to not be tired at that point of night. When I feel like crashing, it's usually around mid-afternoon or 6pm.


    .
    OMG I know. It's so hard to shut up my mind. I have to set the tv on a timer alot of times and try NOT to fall asleep. Occasionally, I can do some mellow music, but other times I get too into the music and get a second wind and am wide awake and craving more music.

    I have a theory.
    Extroverts fall asleep faster. Why? Because extroverts get their energy from the external world and introverts get their energy internally. I know sometimes I can't sleep because my brain refuses to. A little experiment? Introverts that can't fall asleep, instead of lying in bed introverting, lie in bed extroverting. Make it so you're environment is non-stimulating and extrovert. It should take more energy on your part thus you'll fall asleep faster.

    I've noticed something about my self... Before I go to bed I have to be reviewing the past. I'm guessing this is Si (my supposedly 3rd function). But I have to have a song I've heard playing in my head, or reviewing past conversations, or thinking about someone. This fits neatly into my "use a more energy taxing function before bed" theory. So, introverts, instead of introverting you're first function, introvert your third. It might solve the problems.

    Without time constrictions I sleep 12 hours and stay up 13. I've done this over the summer and during breaks pretty consistently.

    I used to have pretty erratic sleeping habits. I'd sleep 4 hours one night and 12 hours the next. Some nights I'd be ready to go to bed by 10:00, other nights I wouldn't go to bed until 3:00 or 4:00 am and I'd only sleep a few hours and end up groggy the whole day. I can't just go to bed at a certain time and make myself fall asleep but I've been alot better about keeping at least a somewhat regular sleeping schedule. When I do so, I generally feel better. I also hear it's better for the body's metabolism too.

    Definitely not. I had thought I'd grow out of it as I got older, (or grow into a normal sleep pattern) but that hasn't happened and I doubt it ever will. If left to my own devices, I'm most comfortable going to sleep around 4 or 5 AM and waking up around 2 PM - an eternal teenager I guess.

    Thank god for coffee and lenient bosses.

    i think definitely no...i blame ne for real. last night after being on the computer and reading and learning different things on different pages...researching this and that and making plans and figuring things out...i was about to pass out dead i was so tired but i laid in bed for hours because my brain was on overdrive like super enthused manic style...like omg this and that is such a good idea...ahhh...and blah blah blah tornado style thoughts. it sucked so bad i almost had to take a valium. i was feeling anxious and panicky.
