    When I'm at home or in my car, I always have music playing. It just seems incomplete without it. The only time I turn it off is if I'm writing an article (too distracting) or watching a video with sound (obviously)

    But sometimes I'm at a friend's house or in someone else's car, and they don't have any music on. One friend in particular, it seems like he only listens to music when he feels like hearing a certain song. He'll just listen to that one song, then turn it off when it's over. I understand that some people need silence to totally concentrate on something (and so do I, for certain tasks) but I don't get how someone can just sit around and relax in dead silence.

    I can't have an MP3 player at my 9-5 job, and I find myself whistling or singing out loud a lot. Luckily, I work in a really loud factory, so nobody else hears me :p I guess I'm just a very musical person.

    What about you guys and gals? Do you have to have music playing all the time?

    Majority of the day, maybe 50-75%.. I listen to music while working in my office, at the gym, in my car, even when im out with friends - we are normally at a bar/club so there's music going on then too. I mean, even if your shopping at the store you normally have music in the background playing.

    Really the only time i'm not is if i'm on a call/meeting with a client or watching tv/movie. :O

    I dunno what it is but music helps me stay focus; I tend to not day dream about other shit or get bored as easily.

    Usually when I'm working on IM or working out I've got the music going.

    Pandora is running constantly until it times out. Then I restart and keep going. So 18/7?

    Background music or actually listening to the music and mumbling the text? I only listen music when I need to relax the mind after hard work/studying or when I'm commuting. When at parties, music should be always on.

    all the time at my PC
    all the time outside until I broke my mp4...

    Living without music would be a mistake!

    I listen to music while I'm cooking, on the bus or train, while I'm working, in the bath - this could go on for awhile...

    I listen to music pretty much when I'm doing anything that doesn't need my undivided attentions.

    I only listen to music while I work. It keeps the crazy little man in my head busy dancing and not hopping onto my train of thought mucking up the progress.

    I never listen to music in the car. I also don't text, eat, or use my phone either... I'm driving. I should probably focus my efforts on steering the multi-thousand pound high-speed death machine barreling down the street instead of rocking out to the new Miley Cyrus jam.

    I have music playing all the time at home - just mute if it need be, no stopping.

    I like things quiet. Silence helps me think better.

    Not as often as I used too. I have kids now and my music is too hardcore.
