Abstract

Previous research has reported that people who feel at their peak in the evening are more prone to depression and affective disorders. In a sample of 194 undergraduate students (54 men, 140 women; M age = 21.6 yr., SD = 1.4), using a simple correlational design, describing oneself as an evening person and scores on Horne and Östberg's Morningness-Eveningess Scale were correlated with higher scores on measures of depression, hopelessness, defeat, and entrapment, but not with a report of past suicidal ideation or attempts, thereby supporting previous research findings.
