    Not really.

    The music I enjoy are usually integrated to something else that I like (e.g. a movie or a video game) so that I'm induced to like the music that comes attached to it.

    I am a casual music person. I am picky about what I listen to, but not because I have a clue about music or have refined tastes or anything. I just like what I like. Mostly, though, I use my iPod for audiobooks and don't listen to music all that often.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Of utmost importance. It's one of the very few interests which has proven un fleeting.

    Probably more listen to it as it comes along. I don't go out of my way, though I can be kinda picky with what I listen to.

    Then other times I'm like 'whatever' and I listen to Kesha, Rihanna, and their kind.

    It depends on how critical the activity is, but it's mostly background, I seldom put on a record and just sit back listening to it. The closest to that would be a youtube video/playlist.

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

    I spend way too much time looking up music. Pretty devoted. It's hard to imagine life without music. I also take classes for making music at my college, thinking of making it my major.

    I'm an electronic music fan, and listen to and follow "hipster" music more than I should. Chillwave, witch house, vaporwave, glo-fi, hypnagogic pop, etc.

    I would without a doubt choose to lose my sight over my hearing. It would be very hard to live without music or communication.

    I also test highest on musical intelligence. I played piano and guitar and sang in choirs growing up, used to sing constantly even as a very young child, have spent countless hours listening to music of all kinds all my life -- yes, it's the one thing that remains constant, and I'm not sure how well I'd function without it.

    Not in the sense the OP is asking. I don't explore the darkest realms for new musical experiences, I don't go out of my way. But I'm always up for hearing something new.

    However, one thing I've never personally liked is the idea of "background music" as being the only use for music. When I "listen to music," it's my main focus, not a background. If I'm doing something that causes the music to slip into the background, I turn it off / change to something different. Still, background music has its place--it's just that using it that way shows, to me, less respect than Active Listening.

    My favorite thing to use music for: to see inside others.
