honestly? i feel like claims that people are listening to music more "just" as background noise comes across as really old-man-yells-at-cloud. i wonder if anyone has any evidence of this that's more than anecdotal. sure, spotify markets a lot of their playlists that way but i wonder how accurately targetd any of that marketing really is.

i've always listened to music while doing things like reading or working. and the key word there is "listened" because i'm not just having it as background noise but acticely appreciating the music. to put it as drily as possible i guess lol, i'm enjoying the intellectual stimulation that music provides, and that gives me a feedback loop to increase the enjoyment or productivity of my current task. granted, this might be an adhd or autism thing, but i doubt i'm alone in this pattern.

then again, maybe i'm the minority, who knows. until i see some actual numbers i'm not gonna buy it though.
