IF picking a playlist was your first step when studying, you’re more likely to have had a high GPA, according to new research.
A survey of 2,000 Americans looked at the tie between music and study habits and found those who play music were likelier to have a GPA above 3.2 (84 percent vs. 78 percent).
Results showed that half of respondents recall regularly listening to music while studying (49 percent), and 60 percent said that they were able to study better with sound on in the background.
Further, this percentage is likely to increase for younger students.
A total of 58 percent of 18- to 25-year-olds noted they listened to music while studying, compared to only 41 percent of 58- to 76-year-old respondents.
And this trend continues beyond the classroom and into the workplace.
Currently, two in three Americans listen to music while working. Most of those respondents feel more productive at work when listening to music (89 percent), and said that it makes them look forward to working more (84 percent).
