So I was working on an essay for one of my many journalism classes with my music playing loudly when one of my roommates tells me that my music is keeping him from concentrating on his work. This caused no drama at all as I simply put on headphones, but it led to me asking myself a very interesting question. Do more people get distracted by music while they work? I personally find that good music allows me to drown out any outside distractions letting me focus better than without it.
All this to simply ask, does music benefit or annoy you during work or studies? Which kind is best/worst?
