Many would argue that Ludwig Van Beethoven, Sigmund Freud and F. Scott Fitzgerald were some of the brightest people humankind has ever seen. But how did they do it? Experts say that the science of sleep heavily impacts an individual's rate of productivity, creativity and even sanity. In this infographic based off of Mason Currey's 'Daily Rituals: How Artists Work,' the sleeping schedules of various geniuses are compiled to show how their sleep effected their intelligence.

This infographic is cleverly laid out like a clock with the sleeping schedule of each famous individual documented in a colored strip to showcase the hours they rest. Some famous individuals have quite outlandish sleeping schedules, like Balzac who would sleep from 6 pm in the afternoon to 1 am in the morning the following day. It's interesting to see how great minds have such eccentric sleeping schedules. Stats for Genius Bedtime Infographics Trending: This Quarter & Average
