    Well, change loud to a moderate volume and you've described me accurately.

    Yes, music helps a great deal in coping with the boring but necessary stuff. Like cleaning or commuting to work to name a couple of examples. I also like to listen to music while exercising.

    yeah absolutely...it's quite ridiculous really but i hate cleaning with anyone in the house. i like to send everyone away and turn up some super loud house music and get into the zone...cleaning and redecorating...it's fun sometimes if you do it that way...otherwise...it's maddeningly boring and i take a million breaks so as to not go completely loco.

    Same here.

    Music makes the interesting stuff more interesting as well or at least gives me plenty of energy to go after thoughts/things with full force.

    I need it loud enough to where I can hear every little thing or loud enough to fill a room if I'm not wearing my headphones.

    Depends on how much focus I need and how extroverted the job is. I tried studying with music, lol does NOT work for me. If I'm reading the stuff out loud, that obviously gets in the way. If I'm trying to study in 'silence', my mind automatically favors the extroverted, so I end up singing along to the music rather than studying.

    Yeah music helps. I don't play it insanely loud, though... Sometimes I even read listening to music, but then I need to pick familiar music, so that I'm not distracted into actually listening it.

    Hey, me too! Well, I can't send anyone out as they pay the same rent as me, but I try to clean when they're not around.

    Music doesn't help me for very long. But audiobooks are beautiful, wonderful sanity saving things.
    “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.”

    Music with exercise is incredible and really boosts the quality / quantity of my working out (just like suchirony said above). However, studying with it is difficult for me. Increasingly so as I get older.

    OP - any tasks in particular you had in mind?
