“You can’t just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood,” said Calvin. “What mood is that?” asked Hobbes. “Last minute panic!” replied Calvin. This is something all the procrastinators swear by. They are always on the run. From springing up from the bed to brushing and taking a bath simultaneously to dressing up and rushing out till they reach the place, they are always running.

If you also belong to the tidsoptimist (a person who is habitually late because they think they have more time than they do) clan, you’ll relate to these few things;

* You are that friend who tells your friends you will reach somewhere in ten minutes and turn up an hour late.

* You know all the shortcuts; be it reaching somewhere or getting some job work done.

* Your skill at making excuses are out of the world.

But science has an explanation (consolation, rather) about this chronic habit. According to studies, people who are always late tend to be more optimistic in life. And not just that, they are also generally good at multi-tasking and are always hopeful.

A recent research conducted by San Diego State University found that lateness is associated with Type B people; those who are laid-back, easy-going, not stubborn and adaptive to surroundings. So, basically, it is how some people are wired; something psychological. Rejoice procrastinators, for now you have a solid, scientific excuse!
