I want to say yes, but then musical taste is subjective and environmental. So, its related, but not the only factor. However, I feel like people with higher IQs more frequently listen to intelligent music, verses others...

Put simply, no. Does intelligence affect a person's taste in food?

But there are people out there who want to come across as intelligent and as such their taste in music is possibly or deliberately skewed.

Yes. Intelligent people will eat healthily where possible. They're exercising discretion in their choice of food.

Deciding to eat healthily is a different thing to a person's 'taste' in food. A person's taste in food simply indicates the food that they like the taste of, for example, a person can like the taste of sweets but recognise that eating sweets is unhealthy. Likewise a person can dislike the taste of vegetables but decide to eat them anyway because they are healthy to eat. Their intelligence hasn't altered their 'taste' in food, just what they decide to eat and what not to eat.

Explain this please.


He's probably making a connection between the fans of label produced pop acts and bands and their own maturity. Generally, those fans are young with very little life experience.

Now, if he's talking about bands and genres outside that, like say, AC/DC or Three Days Grace or Kenny Chesney then he doesn't have much of a case.

If you're 52 years old and still listening to punk songs about high school rejection, then....
It was my privilege

Most of the other people in my chemistry and physics labs listened almost entirely to modern folk. Not sure what that means.

A 52 year old man listening to songs about high school rejection are little different than a 52 year old man listening to the Rolling Stones on occasion because he still thinks their music is fun.

It means they're trying to be hipsters.

Probably because actual punk songs were more about how screwed up society was/is.

Mhm. Similarly, a person can like the sound of metal, but recognize that it's terrible and so make the decision to abstain from listening to metal.

Your counterexample was just terrible.

I'd say a better analogy would be someone who likes listening to metal at full volume but makes the decision to abstain from doing so because of the risk of hearing damage.

Why do you sign your posts off? Your username is right there.

****ing stop.


I like to sign my username because this was what I did when I wrote letters to people. It is a habit that I developed and it creates a sense of "formality" to the entire endeavour.


That is why.

somewhat i guess. i'd say whatever you're intelligent in/at/with may influence your music taste. though to me it seems someone's taste is more affected by their personality than anything else.
#142
No, what would people with a high intelligence listen to then?

And I'm pretty sure that for every genre of music, there are several retards that enjoy it.
