Apart from differences in circadian phase position, individuals with different morningness–eveningness levels vary in many more characteristics. Particularly consistent relationships have been observed between morningness–eveningness and mood. Eveningness has been associated with disadvantageous mood, e.g. depressiveness in healthy individuals, and mood disorders. A concept of social jetlag suggests that evening subjects function in less advantageous environments due to discrepancies between… 

Wise “birds” follow their clock: The role of emotional intelligence and morningness–eveningness in diurnal regulation of mood

The findings suggest that individual differences in circadian variation in mood reflect several factors, including an endogenous rhythm in energy, the distribution of social activities throughout the day, and the person’s awareness of their own energy level.

The Role of Morningness and Endurance in Mood and Attention During Morning and Evening Hours

Abstract. This study aimed at testing the effects of morningness-eveningness and endurance on mood and selective attention during morning and evening hours. University students (N = 80) completed the

Chronotype and time-of-day effects on mood during school day

It is suggested that it is not shortened sleep duration responsible for decreased mood in evening-oriented students, and regardless of chronotype mood increased throughout the school day from the lowest morning levels.

Cross-cultural comparison of seven morningness and sleep-wake measures from Germany, India and Slovakia.

The hypothesis was that Indians should be earliest chronotypes, followed by Slovakia and then Germany, because of higher temperatures in India, and the fact that Slovakia is located farther east compared to Germany, to assess differences in morningness-eveningness between Germany, Slovakia and India.

An in-depth look into the association between morningness–eveningness and well-being: evidence for mediating and moderating effects of personality

Results demonstrate the importance of investigating both chronotype and personality in studies of well-being, and show that morningness, the two personality traits, and satisfaction tended to be mutually positively correlated.

Emotional states in adolescents: time of day X chronotype effects while controlling for psychopathological symptoms and sleep variables

ABSTRACT The present study primarily aimed to investigate the interactive effect of chronotype and time of day on adolescent’s emotional states. Chronotype influences behaviour throughout the day,

Angry night birds: Emotionality, activity and sociability temperament in adolescent chronotypes

The results suggest that evening chronotypes can be temperamentally inclined to anger, and the possible mechanisms of this association are discussed.

Morning affect, eveningness, and amplitude distinctness: associations with negative emotionality, including the mediating roles of sleep quality, personality, and metacognitive beliefs

Findings indicate morning affect/alertness, and a stronger amplitude of diurnal variation, may both be more strongly related to negative emotionality than is eveningness preference, and that these relationships may involve aspects of personality, sleep quality, and also maladaptive metacognitive beliefs.

Evidence for the validity of the composite scale of morningness based on students from Germany and Poland – relationship with sleep–wake and social schedules

Morningness–eveningness preference can be measured by questionnaires, such as the Composite Scale of Morningness (CSM). Here, we used data from a retrospective sleep–wake diary including many aspects



Morningness–eveningness as a dimension of personality: Trait, state, and psychophysiological correlates

Personality, mood, and psychophysiological correlates of Home and östberg's (1976) Morningness‐Eveningness Questionnaire (MEQ) are reported. State data were collected at both morning and evening

The results indicate that eveningness might be an unspecific risk factor for mental and physical health in adolescents.

Morningness–eveningness and temperament: The Regulative Theory of Temperament perspective

A self-assessment questionnaire to determine morningness-eveningness in human circadian rhythms.

Although the questionnaire appears to be valid, further evaluation using a wider subject population is required, as sleep habits are an important déterminant of peak time there are other contibutory factors, and these appear to be partly covered by the questionnaire.

Circadian variations of self-reported activation: a multidimensional approach.

Self-reported activation measures through adjective checklist measures has been shown to be a valid method of revealing Self-reported circadian variations, and to assess individual differences in terms of their circadian typology or morningness.

Relationship Between Depressive Symptoms and Sleep Duration/Chronotype in Women

There are few studies suggesting that chronotype or morningness-eveningness (M/E) is a predictor of depressive symptoms. A sample of 277 women (university students) of a mean age of 22.25 years ±

Depression Scores Associate With Chronotype and Social Jetlag in a Rural Population

The results indicate that misalignment of circadian and social time may be a risk factor for developing depression, especially in 31- to 40-yr-olds, and these relationships should be further investigated in longitudinal studies to reveal if reduction of social jetlag should be part of prevention strategies.
