Quiet Environment Is Better for Creativity than Music

quiet environment is better for creativity

A new study suggests that quiet environment or background library noise is better for creativity than listening to music while performing the task.

A team of researchers from the University of Gävle, Sweden, and the University of Central Lancashire and Lancaster University, both in the UK, conducted a series of experiment that included human volunteers.

The authors of the study conclude in their paper: “[T]he findings here challenge the popular view that music enhances creativity, and instead demonstrate that music, regardless of the presence of semantic content (no lyrics, familiar lyrics, or unfamiliar lyrics), consistently disrupts creative performance in insight problem-solving.”
