Why I don't listen to music anymore
I don't dislike music, but I don't listen to it at all. I don't have any bands or songs that I keep track of. If I choose to listen to something its mostly random and I never remember what it is afterwards. My friends all have their music and I don't know any of them. It makes me feel sort of left out in a way. If you listen to literally no music at all, the no, no it isn't normal.

Everybody loves music, right? Musical anhedonics, however, show no such physiological change to music. A recent study , published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences , took those findings a step further by studying neural responses to music. As part of the study, 45 students from the University of Barcelona where most of the study authors are based were asked to fill out a questionnaire that helped determine their sensitivity to musical reward. The researchers then had them listen to music while measuring their brain activity with an fMRI machine. Meanwhile, in the brains of hyper-hedonics—people on the other end of the musical spectrum—researchers saw the strongest transfer of information between the auditory and reward parts of the brain. Sitting at that musically inclined end is Paul Silvia, who is often immersed in post-rock, shoegazer rock, electronic, or jazz music.

And you always answer with something horribly lame, like: "All sorts! A bit of everything! Just general music! It doesn't bother you when there's music playing in the background, but the thought of sitting down and listening to a whole album is very strange to you. You know that not committing to an answer makes you look desperately uncool, but there's nothing you can do about it.
