Top 10: Music to Help be Productive

reading time: ca. 1 min


Having written a term paper on the effects of background music on the human brain, i can tell you that it is proven not to be productive to listen to overly loud music or complete silence. Instead you should surround yourself with a moderate ambient noise ("easy listening") that will induce processing difficulty, leading to abstract processing and, consequently, to greater creativity. In other words: a moderate ambient noise (around 62 to 70 decibels) enhances creativity by prompting abstract thinking. The only thing i wonder though is: how do you find out the decibel level of your music on a pc or mobile?
