What is a Chronotype?

The concept of chronotype is almost 50 years old and was born with Öquist, who adopted it for the first time in his thesis in 1970.

O. Östberg and J. Horne revised this questionnaire in the following years, publishing the morningness-eveningness questionnaire (MEQ), which is still in use nowadays to understand if a person’s circadian rhythm produces a peak of alertness in the morning or the evening.

You can take the MEQ test here .

What is a Circadian Rhythm?

As all the living beings on Earth, humans developed many internal cycles that follow the day and night rotation of our planet, which lasts for about 24 hours.

These cycles are the circadian rhythms, and they regulate both physical and physiological aspects of our body, like the blood pressure, the body temperature, the sleep-wake alternation, or even the reaction time and the coordination accuracy.

Chronotype 1 - Bear

The most common chronotype is the bear — around 55% of the population resonates with this chronotype.

Between the four chronotypes, the bears’ sleep cycle is the most faithful to the day-night rotation — they hate staying up late, and they have no trouble getting to sleep.

Sleep Cycle: 11:00 P.M. — 7:00 A.M.

Enhanced Productivity: 10 A.M. — 2 P.M.

Chronotype 2 - Lion

The lion chronotype fully embodies the early bird imagery — it likes to get up early in the morning, it has a lot of energy, and it can start working right away if possible.

Sleep Cycle: 10:00 P.M. — 6 A.M.

Enhanced Productivity: 8:00 A.M. — 12:00 P.M.

Chronotype 3 - Dolphin

Dolphins sleep with half of their brain at a time, so it is no surprise if you are having problems resting peacefully. You are always on your toes, and you wake up frequently during the night.

Dolphins also ruminate about their successes and failures, a behavior that protracts overnight, making them socially distant and uninterested. Despite their anxiety, they are one of the most intelligent chronotypes.

Sleep Cycle: 11:30 P.M. — 6:30 A.M.

Enhanced Productivity: 3:00 P.M. — 9:00 P.M.

Chronotype 4 - Wolf

The wolf chronotype, unlike the lion, has trouble waking up in the morning — wolves are more energetic when they wake up late, and they burst out energy and creativity in the evening.

Wolves feel tired throughout the day, but they suddenly wake up when the sun is about to go down. They are introverted and highly creative beings, traits that flare up in two steps, one around noon and one around 6 P.M.

Sleep Cycle: 12:00 A.M. — 7:30 A.M.

Enhanced Productivity: 5:00 P.M. — 12:00 A.M.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
