I truly believe there are night people and morning people. It is just how we are wired. I've always been a night person. Even in grad school, I could still pull a few all-nighters in a row and in fact that's when I did my best work.
 
During much of my working life, we had flex scheduling. Some (many) came in to work at 6:00 AM. I came in about 7:30 AM (and didn't even like that) but stayed later. When left to my own devices (ie: not having to go to work in the morning such as during vacations) I can easily stay up until 3:00 AM and sleep in until the stock market opens at 9:30 AM (did I mention I am an active investor).
 
Anyway, I do post on HW late, but I rarely see other posts after 10:30 PM.
 
If you are a night person, feel free to post -- you won't wake me!

I am really a night person but my job (working life) forced to me change to a morning person.

Since I have been out of work and fighting PC the past 2 years, I never ever get to sleep before 3-4:30 in the morning. Despite that, I am still up and going by 9-10 in the morning. During my entire adult lifetime, even when working difficult jobs and working 50 plus hours a week, I am one that can get buy on 4-6 hours of sleep tops. So yes, I am always up most of the night.

OK, results are in.

 

Clearly, being a  morning person causes PC

I hate to put a damper on your conclusion - "Clearly, being a morning person causes PC"....but I have a least an exception to that rule!

My husband is the ultimate night person. The only times he sees 4AM is when he hasn't been to bed yet - which is fairly frequently.

I've hoped he could reset his biological clock to something resembling normality but after 40 years of marriage and many attempts, have come to the conclusion that he is in his own time zone.
Husband DX @ 64; 7.5 year survivor colon cancer; father had PCa @ age 65
