Music That Makes You Dumb

Check the data collected by Virgil Griffith that compares the music people listen to and books they read to their SAT scores. He calls it Music That Makes You Dumb. He used Facebook data about the favorite bands and books among students of various colleges and compared them against average SAT scores at those schools. Some pretty interesting stuff. 

For example, people who listen to Beethoven have an average SAT score of 1371. And Radiohead is 1220. Lil Wayne did do so hot though… 889. Another cool stat was that students that listed The Bible as a favorite book averaged 1047, but students that listed the Holy Bible averaged 980.


Turso, thanks for sharing.
