I do want to point out one thing associated with this article. The point is that the noise level, up to a point, stimulates creativity. I suspect it's also the reason that a lot of creative types use music at what may fit in the decibel range.

However, productivity is a separate issue, as a discussion between myself and my husband made completely clear. I know for myself, productivity and creativity are yoked, and I do well in noisy environments such as malls, restaurants, and coffee houses. Other people, not so much. I once knew a screenplay writer who could not get anything done except in the dead of night with his wife at work and the AC/furnace/refrigerator turned off. Absolute silence. Barking dogs ruined his night's work.

It all comes back to knowing where you work the best. The article tells me that what I experience isn't just me, that there's a reason I work well in those places. At the very least, I now know that when I'm stuck, it's time to visit a noisy public place.
