The best times to have sex, go to sleep and learn something new, according to a psychologist

According to clinical psychologist and author Michael Breus, there are four types of people in this world: dolphins, lions, bears and wolves.

Which category, or animal, you fall into is determined by your "internal rhythm" - based on sleep patterns and personality.

In an interview with the New York Post, the author explained:

Breus, who has written about his findings in The Power of When, says these are the times different people should be...
