Influence of music on a person’s character and mind
I can’t imagine my life without the music of Linkin Park, NSync, Backstreet Boys, Gubin, Zhigitter and Muzart. I like rock, alternative rock, jazz, classical, Blues and the sound of simple dombra very much.
I noticed that people who have about the same preferences for music as me are similar to me in character. Speech, gestures, social behavior, dress patterns, and other factors indicate that people who listen to almost the same music as me are very similar to me.
I remember asking a hundred people before. Having turned over the list of his music and listened to some of them, I could roughly understand what he was like, I could make an approximate psychological picture of him.
Googling about this topic came across posts that indicate that music also affects a person’s mental abilities. There is even a term like “Mozart Effect”.
“The first experiments in this direction were conducted on rats.
For two months, they were “forced” to listen to the same thing for 12 hours a day – Mozart’s Sonata in C major. As a result, the rats ” got smarter” and began to run through the maze 27% faster and made significantly fewer mistakes (37%) than normal rats.
Probably, few people know that the world-famous actor Gerard Depardieu in the 60s had a strong defect: he stuttered and did not remember much. Fortunately, in his life, a doctor met who determined that Gerard had serious problems with the middle ear, and attributed to him… several months of daily listening to 2 hours of Mozart music. The result was stunning, and we all know it.
Gerard completely got rid of stuttering, improved his memory, which allowed him to become a great actor. Then he will say:
Before I met Tomatis, I could not utter a single sentence to the end. He helped me complete my thoughts, taught me how to synthesize and understand the process of thinking itself.”
