I've read often that gifted people need less sleep than normal, especially as children, but I'm definitely not one of them. Generally, the more sleep I get the better I look, feel, and behave. Sometimes I can get involved in a project or reading a book and keep going for hours and hours getting lots and lots done. But I always, always pay for it with melting brain for the next couple of days. Finding a balance has always been a challenge.

Interesting point regarding sleep. I generally function on 4-5.5 hours a night and only feel the need for the standard 8 hours maybe every once every ten days or so.
New ideas or creative work tends to " rev" my system, even if I had been previously feeling tired and I can become absorbed working nonstop for hours afterwards.
