Automated Morningness-Eveningness Questionnaire (AutoMEQ)

Welcome to the Automated Morningness-Eveningness Questionnaire1

Our questionnaire gives you advice about your "circadian rhythm type."

There will be 19 questions about your daily sleep-wake habits and the times of day you prefer certain activities. Answering should take only about 5-10 minutes. As soon as you finish, you will receive personalized feedback.

For each question, select the answer choice that best describes you. Base your judgments on how you have felt in recent weeks.

Discrete item choices have been substituted for continuous graphic scales.
