Study: Hitting The Snooze Button is a Sign of Intelligence

Something you do in the morning can be a signal that you are more intelligent than other people. 

I think it's safe to assume we all set alarms on our phones to wake up in the morning for work or other commitments. We learned from previous studies that people who tend to stay up late are smarter.

Well, now we know that people who hit the snooze button to sleep in later are also more intelligent than those who don't hit the snooze button. The study says that hitting the snooze button can be linked to signs of creativity and intelligence.

As soon as my alarm goes off, I am up (for the most part). I suppose that if I had only a few hours I may be able to do the whole sleep between hitting the snooze button.

Generally, I find those who repeatedly hit the snooze button to be annoying. Just get up already!
