A new study has found that your taste in music can reveal how intelligent you are.
American software writer Virgil Griffith charts the musical tastes of various US college students, with their intelligence levels measured by their average SAT scores.
He claims that the study unearths a ‘correlation between musical tastes and dumbitude (smartitude too)!’
Virgil used Facebook to find the most ‘liked’ artists by students at particular colleges and matched it up with the average SAT scores for that college.
As a result of this study, he found that students who listen to Radiohead and Beethoven are smarter than students who listen to Beyonce and Lil Wayne are allegedly less intelligent.
Counting Crows, U2 and Coldplay are also supposedly popular among smart students.
RnB, Rap and Hip Hop all fell to the less intelligent side of the chart.
That means that according to him EVERY SINGLE PERSON i know is dumb.
Good one Virgil.
