A small amount of research has been done on musical preferences and personality, with some kinds of music being linked to antisocial behaviour. The argument is usually that music can sometimes cause antisocial behaviours, through rap, metal, violent lyrics etc, especially in adolescents (similar arguments are made for other media such as video games).


As a joking reply to this idea, people will say things along the lines of, "I wonder whether WWII would have still occurred if the Nazis and the Soviets didn't play video games and listen to metal. Same with Charles Manson.
^
Fallacy for sure, but I think the studies you refer to are deeply flawed.

In regards to violent video games:
Third variables such as the increase in domestic violence, mental illness, crime, lack of child supervision are all dramatically higher in low SES populations.
They also usually can't afford childcare and there's also a higher rate of single mothers.
That means that kids might be placed in front of the TV with video games to keep them from being in need of the close supervision they often require.
And easy to persuade children also have other links that come before being influenced by others or media
The problem wouldn't be the video games.

Also, if we're going to spend a moment in reality, well have to admit the amount of funding studies get, is based on popularity or how people "sell" their research.
^
People blaming media is way more popular than adults (parents, teachers, social workers, funding projects, mental health and addictions workers, social assistance, healthcare...) taking personal responsibility for the upbringing of children.

As for music, pop music and other soft agitates the $#%^ out of me and makes me want to bash my head into a wall (and no I'm not willing to do that for any of you) ------ but when it comes to metal and violent music, I love it and often find it soothing (as I've said at least once before).
There's no such thing as too heavy for me, yet I'm the most harmless and benign person here.

Datura, babe

Why are you talking so much

-- Sun Oct 20, 2019 3:25 am --

Here's the thing--

The study only shows that kids with antisocial behaviours have been linked to certain kinds of music. It doesn't say that the music causes the behaviour or antisocial behaviour means you'll end up listening to harder music. It doesn't take into account that kids in certain cultures listen to that kind of music ubiquitously. You listening to heavy music doesn't mean some kids might be negatively affected by it either. Nor does it mean people weren't bad before that media was available. You mentioned fallacies and there's a couple in your thinking

All I wanted was for some music to be posted and see how people's taste has changed over time. Can we do that?

I always talk a lot.

I also said my own first comment was fallacy.

I was involved in a bunch of discussions about this a while back elsewhere, so in my mind I was responding to that along with this.

I didn't realize that you just wanted music to be posted.
My mistake.

I switched from pop music to harder music during the last year of elementary school.
I went progressively heavier as I got older and I also incorporated classic rock as I got older.

I still listen to it so I'm not sure what you mean.
In early adolescence it expressed sadness or grief or self pity or something and background music to my self-destruction.
Then despair. That's all I'll answer of those early years.

By mid to late teens it was more about hatred and enjoying self destruction.
Now, I no longer particularly self-destruct, but I find aggressive/violent music very grounding.
Same with people with "heavy" energy (obviously not to the extent of a serial killer - which I described as having heavy energy.
Why were you rude to me a couple comments ago?
Do my posts annoy you?
