And lucky for these folks, Breus tells mbg, “They usually do not report sleep problems–in fact they rarely report many problems at all.”
Lions tend to be leaders, or chief operating officer types, he notes, adding that they also like to make daily lists, going from step one, to two, to three, in order. “They are natural early risers, driven and focused, and highly productive in their careers,” Breus explains.
Socially, however, the lion chronotype can have some difficulties. According to Breus, they tend to be “intense,” and because they like to go to bed early, they’re not much for the party scene. “It is very difficult for them to change their schedules successfully,” he adds.
