Hey guys, Does studying while listening to music affect your studies or makes it harder to study? In a condition where you don't have to memorize anything, just writing some code for schoolwork.
I believe it depends, although there have been research on it.
Personally, it distracts me, whatever the genre.
Depends on what im doing, if im trying to revise and memories stuff then i cant have music. But if im writing essays i usually have music quietly on in the background
I can't listen to anything with words, or anything classical with interesting bits in (I am from a musical background so end up analysing chord patterns etc). I can cope with background piano music, but white noise is the best for me.
For me it helps! Can't focus without it, and just end up procrastinating.
