Do you play music in your office? If so, how? With or without headphones?
If it’s without headphones, how do you and your co-workers agree on selection (if you do agree)?
Is there a place for music in the workplace?
Here’s my take:
- I can’t do headphones. Not even one in one ear. They obscure my hearing too much for anything else like a phone or other co-workers.
- I can’t work well in silence. At all. I guess this is the real music dork coming out, but unless I’m having an involved conversation with someone I almost always need music.
- Music selection is usually up to me since I’m the oldest back here, but most of the time I trying and play something that everyone won’t hate. Fridays are filled with Tropical Fantasia (latin music) and every other day is usually something different. Plus, my music isn’t loud enough for everyone to hear the details of, it’s just playing.
What say you?
