    I've trained myself to get up somewhere between 6 and 7am--and to go to bed between 10 and 11 at night. But I don't like to talk in the morning (or hear other people talk), and smiling takes great effort. Also, I tend to be especially clumsy before 9am--dropping things and walking into stuff. And I don't seem to be able to make decisions--I'm sort of on autopilot.

    On the weekend, I have to guard my morningness or else it'll slip and be very difficult to retrieve. I try not to sleep in and not to stay up too late.

    Left to my own devices (as in college and grad school), I regularly go to bed at 4am and get up at 10am--and then take a couple-hour nap around 3pm.

    Yeah, I have yet to meet a P who is a morning person. I have yet to meet a J who is a night person. But it appears that they can be either.

    And why is it that morning people seem to marry night owls? I mean my ex is a morning person, and yeah, it bugs the heck out of me. The whole of society is about being up at the crack of dawn. Crap! It took a load of coffee for me to make it to work at 9:00. Maybe it's becuase most rules of time are made by J's and a lot of J's are morning people? I mean, we don't have to abide by sunrise and sunset now that we have electricity, people! And I can be more alert and do better work later in the day. It's even practical!

    Night owls haves it hard.

    Both my mom and younger daughter are Ps and morning people.

    I love naps! Naps can give you the best of both worlds.

    I hate that!

    I don't think I believe that there's a correlation between P/J and night/morning people. That said, I have a slight preference for mornings. Some of it is definitely conditional (I teach, so I have to get up in the mornings), and I can switch from morning person to night owl with about 2 weeks to adjust. Even when I stay up late, though, my body wakes me up by 9... and if I haven't stayed up very late (like, say, past 1:30 am), I usually wake up at 7.

    My forced wake patterns are extremely slow, though. If I could just wake up naturally at seven, it would be great, but since I have to get up around 530/6, I end up struggling with it and resetting my alarm a few times. So I say that I'm a morning person, and I am, but I'm pretty slow when I have to be up.

    I also tend to require wake time for about 1.5-2 hours before I have to be anywhere, because I just need that much time to feel emotionally/physically awake enough to leave my house. I think that's an introversion thing for me, though.

    Heh. I sleep to the last possible minute, hitting the snooze button multiple times many mornings, and cutting things very close. I'd rather have to hit the ground running than miss a minute's sleep in the morning.

    The INTP, OTOH, likes to get up early enough so he doesn't have to rush through his morning.
