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

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.

First off that sounds like bullshit, 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.

I disagree completely, music taste has no correlation with academic achievement or aptitude on standardized tests.
#87 - 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.

This is bullshit, 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 fucking intelligence

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 shit 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 like dubstep, and rock and metal, but i also kind of like rap sometimes. I get high scores on tests.

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

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

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.

not really, because you just believed something a total stranger told you on the internet. give me a source and i'll believe that

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"

Well a total ban isn't going door to door and collecting firearms. Instead it makes the sale and manufacture of them illegal, which therefore means that the people who already own said rifles will not have their rifles taken away instead after the person dies that rifle will be destroyed. They are getting rid of firearms in a generation.

#116 - sovereignsunkown (02/15/2013) [-]
i'm aware of this.
plus, i don't really see what's wrong with owning a hunting rifle if you also own like, $2000+ of hunting equipment and multiple hunting licenses. i mean, it's pretty obvious you're not buying them to kill people at that point.

on a second thought.
i could be like the last generation's spoilers, you know, they used different colors on the starters to confuse people.
maybe this one is froakie's evo but they modified it to look more like fennekin, because it kinda looks like it, paint it blue and replace all the hair with bubbles...

yeah, MH3U is by far the most popular game in the series so far, and i'm happy about that, but when you compare it's north american success to it's success in japan...it's almost pathetic.
there is an entire section of universal studios theme park in japan dedicated to the series, no fucking joke

IKR I tell my friends about it at school and they have no idea what it is while on a wiki it said its one of the most popular games in Japan!
