Default Some people really just don't like music

Glad I'm not one of these people.

Some people really just don't like music

It is often said that music is a universal language. However, a new report in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on March 6 finds that music doesn't speak to everyone. There are people who are perfectly able to experience pleasure in other ways who simply don't get music in the way the rest of us do.

The researchers refer to this newly described condition as specific musical anhedonia -- in other words, the specific inability to experience pleasure from music.

"The identification of these individuals could be very important to understanding the neural basis of music -- that is, to understand how a set of notes [is] translated into emotions," says Josep Marco-Pallarés of the University of Barcelona.

I dunno. If I didn't listen to music as much I might have led a more productive life thus far.

Then again, my CV wouldn't include "Moderator of online music community" so maybe not.

This reminds me of when I went to the dentist. We usually listen to music while she's working. She puts on pandora. She asked me what I wanted to listen to and I just generally said "idk some alt. rock" and she was like "well that's kind of specific." I'm like what?! that's so vague hahaha. I didn't want to be mean to her and actually say that or anything because she was getting ready to go into my mouth and had the power to cause me pain if she wanted lol. She is a few months younger than me and listens to mostly country.

I remember a guy i knew telling me exactly this, that he didn't get Joy from any music.

He is the only guy ive ever met that probably has that musical anhedonia thing.

I've met a few amusical people over the past couple of years, as they were part of studies one of my professors was running, and one interesting finding is that many of them also didn't get any pleasure or other reactions to other everyday noises either. Sounds like people laughing or children playing, which ordinary people's brains react positively towards, they didn't react at all. Got nothing out of it.

Oh. My sister has this.
She doesn't get anything from music.
While everyone else is at least nodding a little to the rhythm,
she sits there and waits for the "noise" to be over.
And it does pretty much not matter which music it is.

Interesting. Would be curious to find out if the sound-reception area of these people's brains were wired different from other folks.

Eh, I've gone back and forth on whether or not to add this to my resume. A part of me kind of feels like it falls under the realm of community service, which always looks good.
