Night Owls Are More Likely To Be Narcissistic

The Squad August 22, 2013

Guy in BedEarly to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and less likely to be narcissistic.  At least that’s what a new study published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences from researchers at Liverpool Hope University and the University of Western Sydney found.

Researchers found that people with a night-time predisposition were more likely to have traits of the “Dark Triad.”  The Dark Triad is a group of personality characteristics that include narcissism, Machiavellianism (indicative of being manipulative), and psychopathy.

The study included 263 college students- 74 males and 189 females.  They answered questions online about their morning/evening preferences.  They also answered questions to determine their tendencies to each of the Dark Triad characteristics.

Researchers found a correlation between having these traits and being more of an evening person.  There was no association found between the gender of the participant and the characteristics, or morning/evening preference.

So it could be possible that getting enough zzz’s could not only help you put on that muscle you want to attract others, but it could make you more attractive in other areas as well.  Should we all only date ‘early birds?’

What do you think of the study?  Let us know your thoughts in your comments below…
