I am ALWAYS late to work.Â
However hard I try, I cannot be on time. And when I reach the office, everybody welcomes me with judgemental looks, probably making a mental note to themselves â€“ â€œlate again!â€. I have got so many â€˜last warningsâ€™ from my boss, but that hasnâ€™t helped either. Itâ€™s not like I do that deliberately, but thatâ€™s just the way I am.
Feel the same?
Well, Science has an answer to this chronic habit of getting late. According to Science, habitually late people are more optimistic in life.

It makes them bad time estimators, but it proves very useful for them in the long run.
Another research conducted by San Diego State UniversityÂ professes that lateness is associated with Type B people (people who are laid back and more easy going).
In short, these kinds of people see the bigger picture in everyday things and donâ€™t fret over smaller things in life.
Diana DeLonzor, a Management consultant and the author of the book â€˜Never Be Late Againâ€™, states:
Most late people have been late all their life, and they are late for every type of activity â€” good or bad.
Surprisingly little scientific research has been done on tardiness, but some experts subscribe to the theory that certain people are hardwired to be late and that part of the problem may be embedded deep in the lobes of the brain.
You being late is nothing but a result of your psychology and personality.
Smiling already, arenâ€™t you?
