People who wind up to wake up in the morning are smarter, says study
If you already was called lazy to postpone the alarm clock several times in the morning, it's time to turn the tables. According to a study by psychologists Satoshi Kanazawa and Kaja Perina of the Department of Psychology at College London University in England, this habit is actually a sign of intelligence and creativity.

The study explains that virtually all species in nature , from microorganisms to mammals, including humans, work according to a daily cycle called the circadian rhythm. This, in turn, determines the interval of 24 hours based on sunlight, temperature, tides and even the wind.
However, unlike other mammalian species, humans have the unique ability, consciously and cognitively, to replace the internal biological clock. In a study of more than 20,000 young Americans, the researchers found that those who slept late during the week and on weekends, waking up late during the week, but not at the weekend, have a higher IQ than the young people who slept and woke up earlier than ever. Thus, those with an IQ of less than 75 would go to sleep around 11:41 PM in adulthood, while those with an IQ of more than 125 would go to bed at approximately 9:30 AM.
Analyzing participants' schedules and IQs, researchers concluded that people who sleep later demonstrate intelligence by reinforcing that they need not be in sync with sunlight as our ancestors did. In addition, admitting you need more in the morning demonstrates good problem-solving skills, high creativity, and independence.
Everyone knows someone who is afraid of cockroaches. There is even a name for it: catsaridafobia. But we know that fear always exists to protect us from something that might be dangerous, and not cockroaches, right? So why are we afraid of cockroaches? The problem is that often, the system of "protection" internally identifies something as a danger erroneously.
