Chronotype: Evening – Animal Wolf

Wolf Chronotype

“Just like their real-life counterparts, wolf chronotypes are most productive at night. The wolf needs more time to hit snooze in the morning to get all the energy they need to sustain their two bursts of creative energy: the first around noon, and the second coming around 6 p.m. when most others have finished their work for the day. 

Similar to what is considered a “night owl,” this chronotype doesn’t get going until the sun sets, and they may have difficulty waking when it comes back up. Wolves are often happy to go to bed at midnight, or well past it, to help fuel their creativity.

The best schedule for a wolf is:

  • 7:30–9 a.m.: Wake up
  • 10 a.m.–12 p.m.: Focus on lighter tasks
  • 12–2 p.m.: Complete deep or creative work
  • 2–5 p.m.: Focus on lighter, less intense tasks
  • 5–9 p.m.: Engage in creative tasks 
  • 9–10 p.m.: Unwind from the day
  • 10 p.m.–12 a.m.: Prepare for bed
  • 12–7:30 a.m.: Sleep

Only about 15 percent of the population identify as wolves. This type of person is usually more reserved and introverted.”
