According to new research by the American Psychological Association, an organization that seems fascinated by non-human primates, chimpanzees have definite preferences when it comes to music. In fact, they’re rather picky.
This new study says that chimps love Indian and African music but aren’t much for Western-style pop. In fact, they prefer silence to listening to music like Justin Bieber. Maybe they’re even more intelligent that we give them credit for.
The findings were discovered by accident. Researchers were looking to pinpoint certain acoustic properties by using music and the chimp playlists slowly revealed themselves.
My first thought? Poor Bubbles.
