I for one am a fan of tattoos, and oddly enough, I got and eighth note tattooed between an infinity symbol to combine my outstanding love for both math and music. As far as music goes, I am constantly tapping a beat thats in my head while I am in a social context, but when I study I am one that cannot listen to music at the same time. All I think about is the beat of the music and the sounds it is making. I have heard that it is beneficial to listen to classical music at the same time though. How beneficial is it to study while listening to music? Anyone know?
