A study by USA

Smart listen to U2 and Radiohead and fools listen to Jay Z and Beyonce

The software developer Virgil Griffith has conducted a study to classify young Americans based on their IQ and their musical tastes. To reach some sort of conclusion, he used the results of the entrance examinations to the University of all of them, and related to your musical activity on the social network Facebook.

 In the final result, entitled´Music That makes you dumb´ check, according to this study, listen smarter with clear difference, Beethoven. In fact, the distance over the rest is so broad that virtually can not be discussed or excess elitism.

Chicha business comes when we see the following displayed on the´lado of the most listos´ (so to speak) are Sufjan Stevens, Counting Crows, U2, Radiohead, Bob Dylan, Norah Jones and Led Zeppelin.

If we reduced IQ, find artists like The Eagles, Jimi Hendrix, Tool, AC / DC, Oasis, Pearl Jam, Bon Jovi, Maroon 5 and many others.

And that´s when we got to the bottom of the study, which refers to students with poor academic record, which seems to be listening to Beyonce, Lil Wayne, Soca, Jay Z … and genres as diverse as reggaeton, pop and jazz (yes, jazz).

The study, of course, has its shortcomings and may be far from desirable scientific rigor, but throws worthy to consider for discussion results. At least that, right?
