    Do You Have the 'Morning Person' Gene?

    Why are some people alert and chipper in the morning while others can barely drag themselves out of bed? New research suggests that genetics may play a role. Specifically, it's a gene called ABCC9, which scientists have dubbed the "morning person" gene.

    I have found out if I don't get up early in the morning and I am talking at least by 6 am then I am pretty much worthless the rest of the day. I get up at 5 am every morning except weekends which I get up at 6.

    I know from personal experience, I completely and utterly snap if anyone tries to get me up in the morning, and my mom is the same way. So it makes sense that this would be genetic.
