    Can you "study properly" or concentrate properly while there is environmental noise? Or do you feel incapable of "studying properly" or concentrating properly while there's environmental noise? Time to vote!

    My understanding is people with inferior Se might be the most prone to hating environmental noise ("I can't hear myself think!"). But of course its silly to relate this to a specific type or function. It has a lot to do with the circumstances of the situation, and what the distraction is. In my experience though, Introverts tend to like to shut the world out much more than extraverts (I know some Se-doms who can't sleep unless the TV is on, which drives me crazy). But I don't know that there's any hard and fast rules here, probably varying opinions on the matter depending on the person.

    I can't stand it. I never understood how people could study in cafes or libraries. There's just too much going on. Absolute silence is the best for studying and concentrating.

    Background noise is really distracting when trying to concentrate, especially if someone is talking in the background, the tv is on, or music is playing. I agree that a cafe seems like a terrible place to try to concentrate or work on something.

    When doing something that takes little concentration (like cleaning), I like to have music. In that case, it's not distracting at all.

    I hardly ever notice background noise "that Im not paying attention to.. , unless.... im really tired or stressed out in which case I have been prone to be confrontational about it.. example last night I slept with no problem with a large loud fan on full, a closet light, a noisy laptop, my windows open, and the sound of storm outside with no problems..

    I am highly averse to background noise, but I can deal with it so long as it's something fairly easy to concentrate on.

    I said I liked background noise, but I only like music. I am highly distracted by other noises; I am actually unable to fall asleep at night if somebody else is up and about the house.

    I'm an Se-dom that seriously needs background noise to function. Preferably music or TV but as long as things are moving around me at work I'm good. If we're talking industrial type noises then then answer is probably, no.

    It depends on the background noise. I listen to music without vocals most of the time. The lighting, comfort and ambiance of the room is also important.

    Also I should note that it is said to be an inferior Se thing although as people have pointed out, it varies and depends on the noise.
