    I enjoy listening to music while studying, but because I'm bored, not because it truly helps. I have a hell of a time admitting to myself that I focus better in silence.

    I have a theory that it has something to do with auditory vs. visual thinking. You know, auditory thinker needs silence so his thoughts are not disrupted, while visual thinker is not disturbed by the noise.

    What do you think? Do you need silence to concentrate or music is welcomed for you?
    Interesting. And, as a visual thinker, I tend to get visually distracted very easily when trying to study. I almost have to have music playing, preferably electronic music with a constant rhythm, that helps to channel my thoughts into a cohesive manner, but have someone pass by my visual periphery, and my attention is pulled away from my subject, even if just briefly, it is.

    I just write my own music

    But being at least half-serious...I don't like listening to music when I am intensively studying, for this very reason. I find it to be very distracting.

    The only way I can listen to music while studying is if it's something with absolutely no vocals and very little variation in intensity. If it has either of those, the music is just too distracting and I can't help but pay attention to it.

    I cannot listen to normal music while studying. Too distracting and disturbing from my focus.

    I either need silence, or Binaural Beats and Isochronic Tones to help me focus. Which I suspect hardly anyone here has even heard of.

    I like all sorts of music while I work and study. Certain songs I really enjoy can distract me though, because I just want to sing or dance lol.

    How can NFPs listen to music while reading words on a page of a (probably boring) textbook? Maybe they're the chosen ones after all.

    I always learn in silence. Otherwise my learning turns mostly turns into listening of music ... and I don't do any real learning in that scenario.

    Music! Silence "invites" to check the surrounding and get distracted. I have a hard time concentrating, so I started trying anything I could to force myself to stay in my seat. Music did. Now it's like a habit: if I have my headphones on, I have to make an effort to stand up.

    About the music, whatever keeps me entertained. Yes, I'm a visual thinker, and as an introvert who doesn't give a crap about the real world, it's easy to isolate oneself from the "outer" noise. When doing creative things, I listen to highly emotional (for me) music, songs I can ing out loud and act with my face. When studying, I generally use music I already know to avoid the Google searchs, and it's often a whole discography of one band whose music is more or less the same, so my brain doesn't think about It.

    But to be honest, I'm the master of multitasking: I can read while listening to music while talking on the phone while checking that the food is not being vurnt while thinking what I have to do tomorrow. I got used to that since little. In fact, the nore hings I have in mind, the better I can perform them.
