    • A lot of people like many different types of music. We do not all like the same type of music but,probably, we all like music. However , a recent study reveals that we don’t have the same feelings when listening to music. This study investigates the impact different types of music on tension, mood, and mental clarity.A total of 144 people completed a psychological profile before and after listening for 15 minutes to four types of music: grunge rock, classical, new age and designer.

    • According to the study , when listening to grunge rock music there is a significant increase of hostility, sadness, tension, and fatigue and there is a significant reduction in caring, relaxation, mental clarity and vigour.
    • In contrast, after listening to the designer music (music designed to have specific effects on the listener) there is a visible increase in caring, relaxation, mental clarity and vigour, and significant decrease in hostility and fatigue.Unlike grunge rock music, which can make people feel like a bear with a score head, designer music can make people feel over the moon. The results for New age and classical music were mixed. But don’t worry. The study does not mean that if grunge makes you happy and relaxed you should stop listening to it. After all we don’t all react the same to different stimuli
