There is a lot of talk behind music influencing the behavior of the listener. Do you think the music that a person enjoys really has something to do with the way that they act?

It can if you allow it. However it doesn't influence me. I listen various types of music and do not feel that it influences me. Aggressive music does not make me aggressive. It is stupid people that make me aggressive. That being said, calm, peaceful music will not relax me. It is up to the individual to allow it.

I have no doubt whatsoever that music influences behaviour. It definitely affects me. It can make you feel cool, it can make you feel sad, it can make you feel angry and it can make you feel other things. Then when you have these feelings it affects the way you behave.

No I don't think that music ca alter a person's behavior, I think that music a tool a person has ...to feed his/hers soul . people listen to music beacose they like it ...beacose of their mood, music can change that mood ...but bot alter behavior . my opinion ..anyhow
