Music psychology examines the effect of music on people. Music psychology is a broad field, combining elements of traditional music science with applied psychology studies. Music can be a source of pleasure and contentment, but there are many other psychological benefits as well. The psychological effects of music can be powerful and wide-ranging.
1. Music can relax the mind; energize the body, and even help people better manage pain specially those who are dealing with depression and stress.
2. Research suggests that your taste in music can provide insight into different aspects of your personality. Observation claims that someone’s personality can determine their preferred choice for the different types of music.
3. Listening to music can be entertaining, and might even make you healthier.
4. Background music, or music that is played while the listener is primarily focused on another activity, can improve performance on cognitive tasks in older adults. One study found that playing more upbeat music led to improvements in processing speed, while both upbeat and downbeat music led to benefits in memory.
