Rationality around the clock. Sleep and time-of-day effects on guessing game responses
AbstractWe administer a unique online version of the Guessing Game where subject responses are collected across all 24 hours of the day. While time-of-day itself does not affect guesses, when combined with a trait-level sleepiness measure and previous night sleep, adverse sleep states lead to responses significantly farther from equilibrium. These results have implications for shift workers and others whose constraints or choices lead to adverse sleep parameters. Key Words:
