Revealed: The Type of Music That Makes You Feel Most Powerful

Post by Guest on Mon Aug 25, 2014 3:40 pm

If you want to get pumped up before a big event, what type of music should you choose?

Music has already been shown to have all kinds of effects on the mind, like making you happier, reducing pain and bringing people together.

Now a new study finds that music of the right kind can transform the listener’s sense of power.

The study, published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science, was inspired by the pre-game routines of athletes (Hsu et al., 2014).

Dennis Hsu, who led the study, explains:

“When watching major sports events, my coauthors and I frequently noticed athletes with their earphones on while entering the stadium and in the locker room.

The ways these athletes immerse themselves in the music — some with their eyes steely shut and some gently nodded along to the beats — it seems as if the music is mentally preparing and toughening them up for the competition about to occur.”

But which type of music is best for boosting your power and what is it about that music that makes you feel powerful?

To investigate they first had to identify some pieces of music that made people feel powerful.

After testing 31 clips they found that songs rated the most powerful were:

Queen’s “We Will Rock You”
2 Unlimited’s “Get Ready for This”
The least powerful songs were:

Fatboy Slim’s “Because We Can”
Baha Men’s “Who Let the Dogs Out”
Through a series of experiments they ruled out the effects of some components of the music on feelings of power.

For example, the lyrics seemed to have little effect on how powerful people felt.

So what tunes get posters pumped up?

How about a bit of 'Montagues and Capulets' by Prokofiev.  It's The Apprentice Music if you're not familiar with it.
