The Automated Morningness-Eveningness Questionnaire

If you have trouble falling asleep and waking up sometimes, it may be because you're working against your body's natural circadian rhythms. The MEQ-SA (morningness-eveningness self-assessment) questionnaire is an old but still useful test to help you learn more about your internal clock.

Specifically, answering the 19-question quiz will tell you if you're an "evening type," "morning type," or "intermediate type." While you might already know if you're a real lark or a night owl, the questionnaire also can estimate when your brain starts producing melatonin to help you fall asleep easier and when your "natural" bedtime is.
