Needless to say, Listening to music can spirit up people. While some people believe listening to music and concurrently doing something even you're expert in it can really rebate your efficiency, Others think it's completely wrong.
What do you think about that? What advice do you have for someone who is doing both, listening to music & working(e.g. reading, writing, driving, working with computer & etc.)?
I really think it depends on the type of music... This is something I've thought about for awhile, I test myself while I'm studying: what genre of music am I the most efficient with? What volume? What mood? From what I've found, for myself I am most efficient with classical music at a lower-softer volume. This helps especially with when I'm reading a book. However, when it comes to languages, I found that with Russian, it helps me to listen to "alternative" genre Russian music... I think this is perhaps because when I first started learning Russian it's what I did while I studied, so now the music helps retain and recall memories and words.
Of course this is psychologically proved, you can recall something better when you stand with same or similar situation. but question arises is, Do you think if you were studied for example Russian language without music, your learning could be more progressive or not?
