Whether you think this sounds like you or not, look at the clock and think again.

Research recently published in Leadership Quarterly states that, people tend to be much less charismatic when they're at a relatively low point in their circadian rhythms, and much more charismatic when they're at a relatively high point. The Circadian rhythm is your biological clock or the process that regulates your sleep-wake cycle.

In other words, morning people are more charismatic early in the morning and night owls more charismatic later in the day.
