Interested in Language
The following is part of the text I recently came across and have had trouble tracing to a valid, reliable source. Now, regardless of which source it comes from, could anyone please tell me his/her opinion(s) on the writer's word choice in using "incredible," most probably as an idea which is meant to contrast with "pleasant"? I'd appreciate it if you put your opinions in clear and distinguishable terms as I need to decide whether to include the text in the book I'm trying to compile. Thanks.
Studying with the TV or radio on adversely affects your ability to absorb what you're trying to learn. The same goes for any background music which competes for your attention. Choose music you find pleasant, not incredible.

bizi (or Majid?): Please do not post the same question to multiple forums. That just wastes our time. Wait until you get some replies on one forum, and if you are still not satisfied, try another.
If you do decide to post a question here that you posted earlier elsewhere, please have the courtesy to tell us that you'd posted the question to another forum and include the link to that.
So sorry! I didn't know that.
The writer could have said:
Choose music you find pleasant but not exciting.
Maybe the writer was distracted by the music playing In the background.
Many thanks to all the contributors. I got my answer.
Did I phrase my opinion in clear and distinguishable terms?
Yeah, you did Tarheel. I appreciate it!
I get paid in "Likes".
