What Does Your Taste In Music Say About Your Intelligence? by BabaAlabi: 1:42pm On Oct 23, 2013
A good friend of mine loves listening to songs by Terry G while another is into rock. Guess which one is writing JAMB for the 4th time?
I found an article which said that students who loved listening to Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj performed lower in IQ tests. Does our musical preference correlate with intelligence?

Its Plain Rubbish. grin

Jamb itself is a flawed means of trying to get students into university. Complete waste.

Lol...But does the kind of music you listen to matter? For example many Nigerians don't care about meaningful lyrics in a song, na only dance dem wan dance. Does it have an effect on exams and reasoning?

Its hard to explain. The type of music you listen to does not show how smart you are. well, what i think anyway

Smart and Dumb people can enjoy the same type of music at any time.

Just because one does not pass Jamb does not mean he is not intelligent. Different reasons can be the cause. Definitely not music

I think it does. Maybe it's because I don't really like lil wayne but I think it matters. It's not as if people should avoid the music entirely but it should be a once in a while affair. Take a look at this
"According to a recent study, Lil Wayne fans
are as dumb as a rock. If you enjoy Beyonce
and T.I., you're not too far behind. If you
listen to Beethoven, you're practically a
genuis.
Data for the study was gathered from
Facebook. The study's author found kids
from different colleges across the US, and
compared their favorite music to the
average SAT scores from those schools.
According to the results, Lil Wayne fans had
the lowest SAT score at 876, giving his fans
the dreaded title of "dumbest fans," while
fans bands like Radiohead, Counting Crows
and singer Sufjan Stevens ranked in the
1200s. Fans of Beethoven ranked the highest
at 1376. A perfect SAT score is 1600."

True...but do you call the crap Lil Wayne sings 'Rap'? Generalization is dangerous but the facts are there. Majority of people who love listening to Lil Wayne or Terry G are not that bright.

just because someone is writing JAMB for the fourth time doesn't mean he's got an abysmal I.Q. And did you just say lil Wayne's songs? damn! the manner at which that guy plays with words is simply incredible! If u don't like his songs it's because u have a low I.Q already

Rather its the IQ that determines what kind of music one listens to, I think.

A man's higher IQ may lead him to listen to Ebenezer Obey. A man with lower IQ might consider the lyrics/thoughts in the lyrics dull, so he opts for Obesere.

Well, intelligent or not we all have right to live and enjoy life through music, so to each his own. Intelligence doesn't guarantee u 100yrs on earth undecided

well well well music atimes affects our morale. As for me anytime i want to do mathematics, i like listening to a very fast and high tempo music. But normally slow musics affect some people's morale.
Re: What Does Your Taste In Music Say About Your Intelligence? by vivaciousvivi(f): 5:20pm On Oct 23, 2013
I have heard this argument before. Some pals of mine were arguing about Jazz and Hip Hop and its possible effects on one's intelligence quotient. I beg to differ here simple because I don't really like generalizations and also because population samples taken for Studies such as these are most times, flawed. Nevertheless, the facts seem to show it but I still disagree. undecided
