A software developer, Virgil Griffith has undertaken a 5 year research on music and its impact on your intelligence.

He spent a significant amount of time relating a persons intelligence to the type of music they listen to based on average college scores.


His result shows certain music is made for smarter minds while others are favored by people with lower scores.

Songs  by Beyonce, T.I, Lil Wayne, Justin Timberlake get the lowest test scores while listening to Eminem, Kanye West, Alternate Rock, U2, Norah Jones will land you average test scores. His graph shows that the highest test scores are often gotten by people who listen to Beethoven.

Virgil Griffith also has a study that shows which books make you dumb, and shockingly enough The Holy Bible is listed as one of them.
