Hmm, I have to have some sounds to concentrate. I turn the TV on if I want to read or work on the computer. OTOH, other sounds, the clock ticking, chimes, things I can’t control distract me. In my shop, some days I’ve got to plug in a Queen tape and crank it up, other days I say “I’m sick of all the noise, I want complete silence. And in my shop, it’s pretty quiet.

It almost seems to be a control or choice issue for me – if I can choose the sound, I want it. If I can’t, then I can’t get it blocked fast enough. Does that make sense?

Sometimes riding in a car with other people – I just want to say – can’t you just sit here in the car and not talk? (while I try to listen to my music)
