The Psychology of Music: Why Music Plays a Big Role in What You Buy

The Psychology of Music: Why Music Plays a Big Role in What You Buy | Psychology | Scoop.it

 

" There are three qualities of music that can influence buying behavior in a retail environment: tempo, volume and genre.  The individual effects we will see in each of these can be explained by Mehrabian and Russell’s model of pleasure-arousal-dominance (PAD). At its most basic level, this model posits that an environment can alter an individual’s mood and therefore behavior by altering levels of pleasure, arousal and/or dominance through different channels."

Lexi Gatling's curator insight, February 16, 2014 10:53 PM

I picked this article because I wanted to know if this was true or not, This articles talks about how three qualities in music influence you to buy merchandise, tempo,volume, and genre.

 

 

Pros:

The Pros of this article showed that playing upbeat music will prompt people to buy more things.

 

 

Cons:

Slow music caused customers to spend a significantly higher dollar amount on alcohol and spent more time eating while fast music led to a faster meal and shorter wait times for incoming patrons.



Playing slow music led to A) significantly more time spent in the store and B) a significant increase (32%) in gross product sales when compared to behavior when fast music was playing.

Nathan Hanson's curator insight, March 6, 2014 2:07 PM

This was an interesting topic on how different tempo, loudness and style effects customers in businesses the softer and slower it is. The more likely a customer is to buy more than if the music is higher paced or loud.

"Some people may actually see sounds, say researchers who found this odd ability is possible when the parts of the brain devoted to vision are small.

 

These findings points to a clever strategy the brain might use when vision is unreliable, investigators added."

New techniques are letting researchers look at the activity of the whole brain at once. Most brain areas multitask, and the brain is dynamic. It can respond differently to the same events in different times and circumstances.

The psychology of being a novelist

Herald Scotland

 

There's something to harvest now." Looking a lot younger than her 58 years, the author of The Death Of Lomond Friel and now Snake Road has travelled down from her home just outside Dundee to sip coffee in the glass-fronted café of Edinburgh's Fruitmarket Gallery on a sweltering hot morning.

 

She's not especially enamoured with the prospect of being labelled as an author who started writing comparatively late in life. After all, it's the quality of her work that matters, not how old she was when she wrote it. But her two novels to date do benefit from a maturity of outlook, a depth of insight and a sureness of purpose that the vast majority of bright young things can only hope to imitate.

Sad music makes us happy

Sad music makes us happy | Psychology | Scoop.it

"Minor music is sad, and major music is happy, right? It's never been that simple - and a new study sheds more light on the link between music and emotions"

 

"Listening to music that's seen as 'sad' might release positive emotions. According to a study by researchers in Tokyo, listeners perceived the sadness in sad music, but felt both sadness and pleasure when the music was played."
