    So to make myself feel smarter, I looked up a study showing what types of music are common among school grades. To my dismay, the results made me feel a little stupid. And others made me feel a bit smart. Anywho, what do you guys think about this?

    Do you agree with this data? Do you disagree? Do you think the education system is flawed and needs changes to truly determine intelligence?

    lol @ nickelback and ben folds being on opposite sides of the retard spectrum

    but im curious how this study was conducted
    maybe i should read over the article in full in stead of looking at pretty colored diagrams

    the positioning of some of these genres seems suspiciously biased though
    look @ me all by myself with my genius-inducing beethoven vynils
    where is the bach & mozart love?

    Doesn’t really mean anything, artists that are popular in poorer/less educated neighborhoods are in the low spectrum, and vice versa.

    I used to think I was too smart for a catchy tune, but it just made me a snobby dumbass. Now that I moved on from that phase in my life, I enjoy the duck out of both some weird avante garde shit as well as catchy tunes like 24k magic.

    Instrumental music has been proven to make it easier to focus on a task. It's interesting how prevalent psychedelic rock is for middle-to-high performers.

    Being mostly a fan of indie rock, I approve of this. Though likewise, it's not really representative of much. Arbitrary numbers, but hey, I'm happy with these results :p

    It's a meta-analysis.

    Correlation does not imply causation. Something, something ice cream sales and murder rates. The article (nonacademic meta-analysis) attempts to conflate SAT scores with music preference. While this could be a factor there are more significant factors at play (social-economical).

    SAT does not measure general intelligence. Look up the history of IQ testing (dam Frenchies) as to why it came about.

    I could go on and on about this stuff but I'm lazy and like not using my brain ;)

    source: I'm a retard. I have a BS in biochemistry & psychology and a masters in biological/developmental psychology. Talk dirty to me about emotional intelligence if you want my number.
