My problem is does music help you study?
my opinion before reading articles
Personally I think music is just a distraction. While I'm rocking to my favorite song i totally forget about the task at hand and an hour later my mom asks me if I'm done and i haven't even started.
proof of my position
For some people listening to music can be a distraction also if your writing a report you can accidentally write the song lyrics."Surprisingly, the results actually found no significant difference between test scores with liked music, disliked music, and changing state speech" says mind the gap science.
opposite of my position
Listening to music can definitely make homework fun and can encourages some people. Some studies show that music helps you focus and can raise your IQ by 10 points. "Some students can study effectively with music playing." says the University of Phoenix
my opinion after reading the articles
I think that it depends on who you are and what your listening to, Skillex and Mozart make a difference on how well you study. In the end i can't decide if it is good or bad to listen to music while you study.
