I suspect you live alone and no other human being to think about.

Throughout my erratic career (rotating shifts, double shifts, etc), I probably averaged between 5-6 hours of sleep. Been retired for a little under two years, and find myself sleeping in the 6-7 hour range. No naps (yet).

Why do you believe the above?

Casting a pejorative stance on 10-hour sleepers is wrong. Sleep your 9 hours, and let 10 hour sleepers do what feels best to them.

Why do you think it is necessary to have such a strict unwavering standard without deviation?

(and your 9 hours is not that much less than 10 hours!)

Disapproval and completely unnecessary judgments over other people's sleeping length is unnecessary. And people used to be told 10 hours of sleep is positive and the goal years ago.

And having various medical conditions in one's older years can make more sleep soothing to the body and its maladies.

I sleep from about 21:00-05:00 with about 90% efficiency - 7-8 hrs of sleep per night has been suiting me perfectly since I was about 13

I can't speak for other people, but I almost always wake up and go to bed at the same time each day (and in case I don't, I still have an 05:30 alarm set on days off) just to keep my routine consistent. I just won't allow myself to sleep in too much, and I'm kind of a party pooper sometimes, just leaving between 20-21 so I can get up at the same time and feel rested.

If I go to bed before 20:00, I end up just sitting there, getting frustrated because I'm not sleeping, and end up sleeping less than if I go to bed at 21:00 as normal.

I've never needed the amount of sleep people say people my age "needed" - in late elementary and early middle school, I'd get by fine on eight hours a night even though they said we needed 9-12. In high school 7-8 was what I needed, instead of 8-10; now I still need about seven hours, and getting nine would be a heck of a lot of sleep.

Why do you feel it necessary to ALWAYS get up at 5am, even when like above you are leaving people or events early, as you describe above?

just for very strict consistency? just curious.

(you don't say whether working factors into this habit and whether you are going to work at a certain time)

I get up for work at 05:00 (work starts at 07:00) and I've read it's good for you to get up and go to bed at around the same time so as not to throw off your biological clock. And besides, being asleep during the middle of the day just seems like a waste to me, unless you work third shift or otherwise have to.

I usually do better with 9 hours of sleep or more each night. When I get 6 or 7 hours, it is simply not enough for me.

I couldn't sleep 10 hours even if I tried! In my 20's probably, but I worked a lot and went out a lot with friends so 8 hours was probably the norm. In my 30's I had the kiddos, so not much sleep there. In my 40's I get about 6.5 and I'm good with that.
