If thats how anybody listens to music, they are definitely smarter than me.
Regardless of how complex it is.

do you not listen to music and think wow this is a similar feeling to learning math? following along to music is similar to following along to a spoken riddle or story. stupid people cant solve riddles or remember enough to follow along.

I'd say it the music you listen to has very little or nil to how much intelligence you have. I would assert that, although different types of music can point towards a more "intelligent" viewpoint or topic of discussion, a person's reaction to each niche of music and it's context show the intelligence of someone. Now, this isn't pointing to people who are like, "Well, I'm open to everything. C:", not at all. I'm talking about someone who can listen to some songs from a certain genre/sub-genre and say they don't like it yet appreciate the goal it sets out to do and/or judge it based on it's core premise.

I still don't think there's any correlation between a person's intelligence and the way they view music, instead it sounds more like they are able to offer their opinions in a rational and concise manner.

Short answer: nah

I like how a good amount of people who like classical music are elitist snobs who think you need a higher intelligence to enjoy it.

Like a riddle or story, yes. But like a math problem, no.
And since most people don`t listen to music for the stories, it doesn`t really change what they like. So I don`t see how whether or not a song has a story would be able to determine how smart people are.

There is a genre of music made by some math formula. I forgot what it was, but it was really really bad.

Math and music are both abstracts, both utilize formula, patterns, etc.

i didnt mean it like that. im talking about following along with the chord progression, listening for fills, trying to hear key changes, actually critically thinking about the music rather than listening to it as background noise. now, only a musically educated person can really follow along, as any subject. i guess the only thing you can say is that smart people like to use their brain more than the average joe, so a smart person would naturally listen to music that requires a little more thinking to understand, rather than generic pop music.

I`m sorry, I don`t see what your pointing out.
Or are you just saying they`re similar?

Gotcha.
But I was just trying to say you don`t have to be particularly smart to like any kind of music.

I don't see how the two have anything in common. It all really depends on the person's personality. And depending on the person's environment, as previously stated a few times, is absorbed a bit into your personality. And everything past that is based on what the person decides.

That, and I don't think you're really taking into consideration the word "intelligence".

Intelligence is correlated to understanding.
Music is correlated to entertainment.

Do you see any relation? No. So stop making weird theories.

I think it does to an extent. Intelligence is usually caused by the enjoyment of thinking and the pursuit of knowledge so people with both of those traits are usually going to have a more refined taste that intrigues them intellectually more often than a person without those qualities.

I think intelligence effects openess of and general view of musical genres. Not sure what would classify someone as smart but I got a score of 98% for year 12, and I listen to everything from Skrillex to Periphery to Dave Weckl.

Don't think it affects the listener, but to musicians it does... If you have about three braincells you're most likely to play punk because it's really easy, but you have to be pretty smart to play super fast prog metal because you need to have a good sense of rhythm and be good at maths etc...
