Always Running Late? This Is What It Says About You
We all know people who all but pride themselves on being late. However, a recent study may lend some backup to the tardy camp. A study found that there is a strong connection between tardiness and success and creativity. This can be explained by identifying how Type A and Type B personalities, the two groups into which psychologists have been breaking up the human population since the s, conceptualize time. Type A people are more competitive and impatient, while Type B people are more relaxed and creative.
'It's not endearing, it's not cute, it's a flaw'.
Perhaps even bordering on rude. Because according to science, there might be a good reason for their tardiness after all. Business Insider reports that it is, in fact, a common trait of people who are successful, creative and optimistic. It appears that late people, thanks to their positive and optimistic demeanour, often overcommit, as well as overestimate how much time they actually have, meaning it can be difficult to stick to deadlines. Makes sense. Interestingly, one study found creative also known as late people typically perceive time differently. When researchers asked participants how much time had passed after one minute, they guessed 77 seconds has passed, whereas those people who are normally on time guessed 58 seconds.
