    I do multi tasking sometimes. Talking on the phone while texting, chatting, surfing the net, doing assignment, listening to music and studying. And trust me sometimes it work but most of the time it's a bad idea. ;))

    Yes, but I didn't like it because I rarely had the choice of the station. The kids I used to work with listened to their own current style of cacophony. I preferred music.

    Basically it depends on the type of work--but YES is the answer. It seems to help the day go by faster.

    So does the question mean: Are we allowed to while at work, or can we get work accomplished while listening to music? Either way it's a yes :)

    When I feel compelled I have to sing along. That usually keeps me from getting things done.

    Music distracts me. I end up paying too much attention to it.

    Have you tried instrumentals? Something like classical music or trance?
  • NYCbrit ScottM 2013/07/28 07:58:46
    NYCbrit
    Yes, I have. Trouble is I'm a musician (guitar, a bit of piano) and something like a classical piece always gets me picking apart the arrangement. You're right tho, house/trance music is the one genre I can have on whilst working.

    That makes perfect sense. Since I work for a video game company, and started in QA I had to retrain my brain at home to not pick out the flaws of every game I play and get disheartened with them.

    Also though, if you're a musician....wouldn't you be making music? And wouldn't making music be difficult while listening to different music? lol Well, that is unless you are trying to make mash-ups :D
  • NYCbrit ScottM 2013/08/16 21:13:05

    LoL, yeah, listening to music whilst recording would be a BAD idea! I also do computer work as an at-home job, so that's really what I was thinking of. ;)

    If I am writing I can not listen to music with vocals, it throws me off.

    In fact, I work even better when I can listen to music! I can focus and concentrate better because it makes it less boring. It also gets me into the groove of working. I understand that this is not possible with some jobs for obvious reasons, but I wish that more employers understood that there is a huge benefit to allowing this in more work environments.
