    Ambient music or a show/movie with a lower volume, whenever I'm studying or working or doing casual things. Then I can't stand silence. But I can't listen to pop, rap, hiphop or rnb when I'm concentrating. However, I like to hear people talk in the background. It soothes me and helps me relax. But if I really have to buckle down, I turn that shit off and it stays off until I have figured whatever I'm doing out.

    Right now, I'm listening to Sex and the City, while talking to my mom, thinking about making my bed and concentrating on writing this post.

    I variate depending on what kind of music I'm feeling at the time, not depending on the activity, except that I prefer faster, more upbeat music when I'm needing to get alot done at work.

    And that I usually listen to more upbeat music unless I'm going to sleep, at which point I'll listen to calmer stuff.

    I can't go to sleep without music, either.
    Same here, but I go with upbeat/more aggressive music in all cases, I rarely actually go for calmer music, right now is one of those rare moments, and I'm not sure what's causing me choose to listen to calmer music

    Anything I have control over, without comprehensible voices. Which basically equals silence.

    Pure silence is ideal, but it's an ideal never achieved. So better go with plan B than to fight.

    The power of suggestion.

    On an added note, I hate conflicting noises when I'm trying to concentrate, and I'm thinking of things like the TV over music or two different songs, etc. Sometimes if I'm not concentrating, though, I might enjoy it or at least enjoy more noise.

    I work at WalMart and our store's been going through a remodel process. I enjoyed the sounds of construction work going on and wish they would continue because sometimes it just gets frighteningly silent there overnight. :eek:

    It's a beautiful thing. The only time I've experienced complete silence, like I've gone deaf, is out on the countryside, at night when everybody else is asleep. Feels like I've entered a black hole or gone under the water.

    I often leave as on much conflicting noise as possible , music versus tv, versus guitar, it's a battle for my attention. I take it that I just like to have everything fast paced, my homework, my reading, my sleeping lol. I think it must be slow down time, time to reassess myself a little bit hmmm... /irrelevant stuff I needed off my brain.

    If I find a problem in mathematics or anything problem solving related, I find that I really need complete silence. There's always a point at which the noise is too much... despite it being comforting.
