Thread: When you've listened to a CD many times before

    Default When you've listened to a CD many times before....

    ... and you're used to the order of the songs, do you anticipate the first few notes of the upcoming song each time a song ends?

    And if you do, do you find it momentarily disconcerting when you hear Song X [in a mix compilation or something], followed by Song B, rather than Song Y?

    Is this socionics-related?

    I notice this regularily.

    And when I'm listening to a shuffle, the odd coincidence of predicting the right song freaks me out every time.

    Yes to the first part, no to the second part. I often put my iPOD on shuffle so the second part doesn't really apply.

    Well, in this case the soundtrack basically becomes one large song.

    Yes.

    Unless I purposefully have the cd on random continuous play (which is very rare as I tend to listen to a cd's/mp3 player's tracks in order) and I expect the songs to be out of order or I'm listening to a compilation cd of a mix of songs, but then I just anticipate and know the songs that are about to come up from that mix.

    I think it would be more disconcerting if, say, I was listening to a 2-hour trance set which seamlessly weaves in various songs into the set and I'm anticipating a particular song playing but another song plays.

    It's easier for me to just listen through a cd/track list in order. It feels more fluid and seamless to me.

    Yes and yes. I don't think it's necessarily socionics related, I think it's just associative learning. I would think that individuals with greater musical aptitude would start anticipating it sooner, and as far as I know music aptitude isn't type related... is it?

    I also anticipate the first notes and it's normal to do that. Because listening for some times you could remember the order .
