Musicthatmakesyoudumb graph by Virgil Griffith
coming back from taking the GREs earlier this afternoon, i wonder if i can blame my low score on my musical tastes. if you matched my itunes library to this chart, i should have gotten somewhere along the 1076 – 1236 range. ugh to the beethoven listeners scoring around a 1300. typical. perhaps the classical music nerd stereotype does hold true. though i also wouldn’t put too much weight on the graph finding that country music listeners usually scored lower, and hip-hop or r&b listeners even lower. if anything, those listening to Queen, Outkast and Lil’ Wayne should be to the right in Beethoven area because they are all genius!
