According to this research, young people who get tired and sleepy around noon are more likely to commit crimes!


The data shows that these teens are more likely to lie, cheat, steal, and be violent.

York University and University of Pennsylvania researchers worked together to examine the habits of these people over a long period of time.


According to the researchers, in 15 years, it became clear that the young people who get sleepy and tired are 4.5 times more likely to commit crimes.

At first, they looked at the data from three different schools, 39 years ago.


The data set consisted of 15-year-old males. The question asked was how sleepy these kids feel between 1 pm and 3 pm.

For the same students, they collected info on anti-social behaviors they displayed, from both the students themselves and from their teachers.


Then they look at the criminal history of the same people at the age of 29.


The researchers chose to ignore the misdemeanors and focused especially on violent crimes. According to the data, 17% of the people had some kind of a criminal history on their records.

Researchers agree that the results indicate a significant relationship between being sleepy and committing crimes.


But still...


The results don't mean that if you are tired at noon you will commit crimes in the future. It just points to the fact that there is a correlation between the two. 

Stay scientific and energized, people!
