Hi mylotters Does music helps you to concentrate on sumthing or it just distracts you ... I can never concentrate on anything while listening to loud, rock music...somehow i feel that my head is banging on to something ... While studying , subjects like maths,Accounts, Taxation ...I do require a soft music at the background..it really helps me ... While taking decisions , it depends on the situation , the emergency all the factors are needed to be taken into consideration ... what about you ??? Happy Mylotting

It doesn't distract me at all whatever I am doing! I am a music lover and listening to the music when I'm doing something it's actually help me because I feel relax and can concentrate with it.

I'd say it depends what I'm doing, rather than what I'm listening to. If I'm doing something that doesn't need a huge amount of concenration then I prefer to have music on. If I'm doing something very complex I tend to turn the music off and start talking to myself!

"If I'm doing something very complex I tend to turn the music off and start talking to myself!"I do this but aside from talking to myself I also talk to my dog who is always on the floor watching me work. And he seems to be so amuse (or maybe thinking what a jerk am i talking to him) hearing my antics. lols!

Music is always playing in the backround when I do other things. For me, it helps me concentrate. It blocks out other noises that may distract me, and gets me working to a rhythem. It also makes the time pass faster, so it makes me feel like I haven't sat in the same place for three hours.

I like listening to music while I work. It tends to not distract me. Usually it actually helps because the silence drives me nuts!

Music def. helps me concentrate. I listen to it while I'm cleaning the house, cooking dinner, doing the laundry and driving in the car. My favorite is rock. Tool, Type-O, Korn, Seether, Killswitch Engage. They keep me pumped and ready for more. I like to mix it up with some R&B occasionally as well. I'm pretty versatile when it comes to music. I love it all.

I find listening to my favorite music and studying or doing something that really need my attention doesn't mix.I would be too busy singing along with the music. I usually work with the t.v. on though. It is great.

I don't like any noise whenever I am studying, I tend to sing onto it then I forget that I am studying,haha. But whenever I am going to sleep or just relaxing. I listen to some of my favorite songs, mostly the mellow ones or rnb.
