Recent Research: January/February 2017

So happy together.

An upcoming study in the Journal of Organizational Behavior finds that employees showed higher degrees of cooperation and lower degrees of self-interest when listening to happy music. Study participants took part in a public goods game that involved choices that were either self- or team-oriented.

Different groups listened to happy music, "screamo" music (a sub-genre of emo noted for screamed lyrics, aggressive sound, dissonance, and unpredictable rhythmic structure), or no music. The no-music group demonstrated the same levels of cooperation as the screamo group, while the group that listened to happy music was more cooperative.Researchers noted the alignment with previous studies that demonstrated positive cooperative effects when people sang or walked in synchronization to music.1
