Higher IQ people stay late on EF!

Extensive research by Satoshi Kanazawa and colleagues at the London School of Economics and Political Science have uncovered significant differences in sleep-timing preferences among people, depending on their IQ scores. People with higher IQs are more apt to be nocturnal night-owls. Those with lower IQs tend to restrict their activities primarily to daytime.

I know why I stay so late on EF

They hang around in the hope that someone else with a high IQ will come and join them?

While reading your post, I got this vision of a person with a fishing rod, sitting by a pothole.

Re: Higher IQ people stay late on EF!

When we say late, it's according to swiss timing. We should not take into account the ones from the other side of the pond. *

*: not thinking about someone in particular though.
