The PSYCHOLOGY PRIZE
[AUSTRALIA, UK, USA]: Peter K. Jonason, Amy Jones, and Minna Lyons, for amassing evidence that people who habitually stay up late are,
on average, more self-admiring, more manipulative, and more psychopathic than people who habitually arise early in the morning.

Proper Psychopaths stay up till at least 3am.
Maybe you're just a Narcissist with Insomnia ;)
