A study also found that people who get their sources from "wtf-fun-facts.tumblr" scored lowest on the SAT as well.

I am just uploading this because i stumbled over it in my long forgotten reaction folder,   
   
and i have no idea of what i intended to use this reaction for.

But those who scored highest on the test, what was their kind of music?
User avatar #42 to #7 - sammyjankiis (02/15/2013) [-]
Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata.
#10 to #7 - anon (02/15/2013) [-]

Graph of a study done on this.
User avatar #155 to #71 - metaol (02/16/2013) [-]
This graph doesn't really add up with previous statements.
First of all, it has listed The Killers further to the right than Tool.
I'm not here to tell you which of these 2 are better, but there is little discussion that the songs written by Tool have complex lyrics and composition. Also, Frank Sinatra is far to the right, and his music isn't exactly considered as complex.

Not implying that you have argued for any correlation between intelligence and music complexity.
User avatar #179 to #155 - nickytheawesome (02/16/2013) [-]
Ah, but the graph itself represents the comparative intelligence of the music listeners (based on american SAT scores) as opposed to the composer, hence intelligent lyrics and composition does not necessarily relate to intelligent listeners.
User avatar #11 to #7 - sovereignsunkown (02/15/2013) [-]
generally, people who get high scores on tests like that tend to listen to complex music, like classical, progressive metal, progressive rock, and forms of electronic music.
it has to do with the brain's ability to process complex patterns and fluctuations in the song or whatever
#119 to #11 - ericzxvc (02/16/2013) [-]
First off that sounds like ******** , and also don't believe that causation = correlation. I think it would more have to do with their surrounding social situation rather than their intelligence level. They're probably much more socially reclusive and therefore don't party and by extension don't listen to that kind of music; but rather are much more influenced by their parents who listen to classical music and such other forms. Because assuming that your intelligence level is roughly decided when you're born, it would not influence the situation you were placed in or the factors that caused you to experience and like certain music.
But you also have to be clear on whether you mean classical music in general or rather the classical era of music, the classical era of music was <100 years and included composers like Mozart, Beethoven, and Handel. Because the classical era was very simplistic in design, preferring grand homophonic symphonies and was relatively non-complex rather than the more complex forms as favoured in the romantic and early 20th century.

I believe the most music that is suited for work is baroque music.

And more specifically, the favorite of the people who scored the highest was Beethoven.

Source?
User avatar #44 to #35 - sovereignsunkown (02/15/2013) [-]
yeah, beethoven is amazing.
although, i'm more partial to vivaldi.
i've also got a huge thing for neoclassical guitar players, like muenzner, becker, malmsteen and suicmez. those guys are all really damn awesome
#153 to #44 - anon (02/16/2013) [-]
totally agree with the Vivaldi statement
#129 to #11 - kingpongthedon (02/16/2013) [-]
Interestingly enough, after accounting for socioeconomic differences, this isn't the case at all. When adjusted, there's little evidence to support any relation between complex music and learning ability. There just isn't any reason for the auditory sensory parts of your brain to strengthen the math and language areas. However, there is a very strong correlation between rap/hip-hop and language skills, due to the lyrical orientation of the genre. I must stress this again though; this is only the case after adjusting for differences in socioeconomic levels.
#95 to #11 - pcirby (02/16/2013) [-]
I disagree completely, music taste has no correlation with academic achievement or aptitude on standardized tests.
#77 to #11 - anon (02/16/2013) [-]
This is ******** , it's just sovereignsunkown's way of acting like preference of music makes you smarter, & just because lil wayne sucks doesn't mean that genre sucks, there's a lot of rap out there that DOESN'T suck, & music doesn't even come close to defining your ******* intelligence
User avatar #85 to #77 - meganinja ONLINE (02/16/2013) [-]
You're incorrect in the respects that nobody said people who like rap music scored low, just people who like lil Wayne. Also while preference in music is highly unlikely to change your scores on a test (unless the music motivates you to do **** on the test somehow), I could see where preference in music could be an indicator of how well somebody could do on an SAT. Not saying I trust this fact, but I can see where it's coming from.

I hate all music and I'm in the top 5% of grades in my year
#87 to #11 - anon (02/16/2013) [-]
I don't think this is true. But, that's mainly because that was exactly the answer I wanted to hear.
User avatar #25 to #11 - didactus ONLINE (02/15/2013) [-]
Interesting, since I like lots of electronic music, and some progressive metal, while my friend is the opposite, lots of metal and a little electronic. I'm not saying we are geniuses but we are above average in each of our favorite fields, His being math and physics, mine being Chemistry and Biology.

Just learned something new, it also seems that i score top on the intellectual chart.
#17 to #13 - anon (02/15/2013) [-]
not really, because you just believed something a total stranger told you on the internet. give me a source and i'll believe that
User avatar #26 to #17 - sovereignsunkown (02/15/2013) [-]
There's been multiple documentaries made on the subject.
CBC had a really good one where they spent a lot of time interviewing Sting, although the main focus was on what made certain musicians "sucessful"

>implying their isn't hip hop songs with complex lyrics, metaphors, and wordplay
User avatar #180 to #144 - sovereignsunkown (02/16/2013) [-]
that's not what i'm trying to say.
the human brain "hears" music 4 notes ahead of what your ear hears, your brain likes to "predict" what's coming. more highly capable brains can predict more possible outcomes, and this allows them to find constant, unpredictable changes appealing, because their brain is capable of "predicting" enough permutations of notes beyond the major scale (which our brains are naturally attuned to) to "predict" that outcome, among others. it's specifically the note structure, not any lyrical value

Whenever anything claims that any group of people scored lower/higher on an IQ/SAT test, you can automatically assume it's fake.
User avatar #133 to #131 - hydraetis (02/16/2013) [-]
actually it was a proper poll/study.

most scientists don't seem to spend a lot of time doing useful things.
User avatar #140 to #133 - HumbertoL (02/16/2013) [-]
I just wasted a few minutes doing research. I found the source that the news stories used:

"Get a friend of yours to download, using Facebook, the ten most frequent "favorite music" at every college via that college's Network Statistics page on Facebook (manually -- as not to violate Facebook's ToS). These ten "favorite musics" are perhaps indicative of the overall intellectual milieu of that college.
Download the average SAT/ACT score (from CollegeBoard) for students attending every college."

Facebook, and collegeboard. Yes, VERRRY scientific. Not prone to error or oversampling at all....
