I must admit that I enjoyed taking the new BBC Radio 3 Musicality Test.
In a series of questions both written and based around audio, your musical knowledge is tested. Not in the sense of who composed what, or who was in which band, but whether you can determine melodies or tempo, as well as the importance of music in your life. A fun way to spend twenty minutes or so.
For the record, here are my results:
51% for Enthusiasm
69% for Musical Perception
34% for Emotional Connection
20% for Social Creativity (i.e. I don’t play an instrument)
94% for Musical Curiosity (I do like an awful lot of different types of music. Thrash metal must be that last 6%)
And I was particularly good at detecting melodies.
