Are you an early bird or a night owl?

Science has shown that those of us who follow fairly routine daily and nightly plans are some of the most productive and successful people out there. They wake up around the same time every day, eat breakfast, do their thing, and maintain a healthy sleep cycle by heading to bed at a regular time each night. For some, establishing habitual patterns feels like most boring minutiae possible, but the truth of the matter is that taking a closer look at how we tend to spend our waking and sleeping hours can reveal serious insights into our personality and character traits, as well as the way we relate to the world and others.

Believe it or not, hidden within the seemingly bland details of your nighttime routine are vast secrets about the real you, including some you probably thought no one had ever noticed before.

The key to cracking this code is breaking down your daily routine and looking for the things you do consistently each and every day.

Believe it or not, your bedtime is one of the most compelling guides to fully understanding who you are. It might sound kooky, but such little details as when you prefer to go to sleep each night, don't only reveal that you're a creature of habit — they're a part of what makes you YOU.

We all have one face we show to the world and another we like to think of as the inner-self that no else ever gets to see. In order to be as fully balanced in life as possible, it's important to get as close as possible to being comfortable with those faces matching up, and to begin that process of self-awareness, learning as much about yourself as you can is key.

Check out the details below to learn what the time you begin your sleep cycle says about your personality and character traits.

1. Between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Going to bed early when you have to get up early makes a lot of sense, but going to bed between the hours of 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. every night of the week — even when you don't have early morning plans — is about much more than logic. If you regularly fall asleep during this time range, chances are that you are a cautious person who craves routine and order. Sure, you love to have fun, but you prioritize your health and your schedule above just about everything else. To some, this might seem a rigid choice to make, but for you, it just works.

Just remember that while there's an old saying that "nothing good happens after midnight,"plenty of great stuff does happens between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.! Don't let your intractable nature keep for you from experiencing new and exciting things in life.

 

2. Between 10 p.m. and 12 a.m.

There's no shame in going to bed between the hours of 10 p.m. and 12 a.m. Hell, there is no shame in going to bed WHENEVER you choose to rest your weary head. However, if you do go to sleep during this time it does reveal something pretty intriguing about your personality. People who fall asleep in this time range are considered to be smart and reliably hard workers, but they also have quite the rebellious streak peeking out from within.

These are people who know that sticking to a routine is the responsible thing to do, but they can't help themselves from feeling the need to push the envelope just slightly, especially if they're concerned they might be missing out on something fun!

While these folks are to be praised for their good intentions, sometimes they do need a solid kick in the pants in order to help them along in successfully accomplishing their goals.

3. Between 12 a.m. and 2 a.m.

Plenty of people consider themselves to be night owls who truly thrive during the darker hours. For this crew, climbing aboard the sleepytime between 12 a.m. and 2 a.m. is simply par for the course. They are creative thinkers of the world — and they are also the worry warts. Sure, they may stay up a tiny bit late because they were involved in yet another whirlwind of social activity, but those hours stretch even farther than they intended because their spirits are full of the restless energy that comes from a mind trying to sort out the whimsies that come from their wandering heart.

People who stay up this late are born searchers, and happiness isn't always easily found. However, if they manage to get the right amount of sleep overall, they can maintain the balance and stability they so desperately crave in life.

 

4. Between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m.

Sure, every so often you might stay up all night for travel or a particularly late special event, but is the absolute norm, but most people don't find themselves going to bed between the hours of 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. on a regular basis. People who do make this their go-to bedtime are free spirits who simply refuse to abide by conventional rules. They are likely to be self-employed, as they refuse to kowtow to anyone under any circumstances.

People who go to bed this late are rebellious, fiery, and quick tempered. They see caving into what the status quo demands of them as the greatest possible weakness, which means they sometimes miss out on what could be promising personal and professional opportunities. I'd tell them to be mindful of this, but no matter what I'd say, they absolutely couldn't care less.
