some people like to do stuff during the day when they can while others enjoy doing stuff at night like run errands and stuff. which do you prefer and why?

i prefer the day because i don't like driving at night.

what about you?

I am definately a night person.

I find that I am unable to do anything that I enjoy until the sun goes down. Such as listening to music, reading or writing. The only music I can listen to during the day is music that I don't take too seriously one way or another. But music that I actually get into is reserved for the night.
I like chicken
I like liver

I work in theatre so I'm used to getting home from work around 11:30 or midnight. I find it really hard to unwind when I get home, so I'm generally a night person. I wish I could do all my shopping after work because it's when I have the most energy and feel like being productive, but most stores are closed. On the rare occasions that I've been on a schedule of not working at night, being up during the day and going to bed relatively early has been really fun and convenient. But it doesn't happen often for me.

I'm a friendly guy in the morning, I wake up with a song. Night though, especially a full moon, I turn into a real monster. I guess I'll post a pic...

This was my interview question.

I'm a night person because I enjoy working at night time when it's all quiet, cool, and calm.

Night person. I get a lot more done when it's quiet and dark, and no one is around to distract me.

Isn't it kind of disturbing all the people here prefer the night and have a fear of daylight..

I prefer the night. I have excellent night vision.. light is hard on my eyes.

Good, I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets upset by bright lights. What really bugs me is bright lights at night. I like dim lights when it's dark outside.

Definitely a night person. When I can set my own schedule, I stay up until 4 or 5 a.m., then sleep till 11 a.m. or so.
Best job I ever had time-wise was a 3-to-10 p.m. shift (no meal breaks). I'd get home, have a quick meal and a shower, and go out and party till the bars closed at 4 a.m.

I much prefer the night, but my schedule requires me to wake up at 6am everyday of the week, so I rarely stay up past 12 at the moment.

What's with all the night owls?

I do my best work when I'm up at 7. This also includes when I pull all-nighters (drinking). My best thoughts come to me between 5-7am.

Seems to be an age thing. Most people I know start up as night persons in their twenties and then turn into a day person when they're turning 30.

Night! Daylight hurts my eyes and I sneeze if there a lot of glow. That and I also burn too easy. And like most here, I can focus better, etc.

Night person. Only because I'm not a morning person. Which means I'll sleep in all day if possible, which only leaves me night to actually be productive.

I am a night person for sure. My classes start at 11am twice a week and at 3pm twice a week. I generally don't start homework until midnight and I have no problem going to sleep at 5am most nights of the week.

That said when I have real work like when I am home for the summer, I like to get it over with and I work a 12 hour shift starting at 4am, never been late too.

The night is just better for doing work. Dim the lights or leave them off, listen to music and type away for hours on end. Get a snack, back to work, don't have to answer to anyone don't have people asking me dumb questions, no phone calls, its great.

Night person, that is because I am addicted to sugar. So I'm tired when I get up all the way until after 12 when I have my first (but certainly not last) can of pop of the day.

Trying to get off of the sugar drug is a bi*ch man. I went one week without a fix and now I'm back on.

My observations exactly! I'm into that transition for quite some time and like it. The day (time to use) is so much longer, when you're up early.

Hmmm... I guess I'm just an "afternoon" person then.
