The Chenmark Pump Up Playlist

In an ironic twist, note that many of these songs are NSFW.

In 2016, Northwestern professor Dennis Hsu researched the connection between music and confidence, and found “the effect of music appears to manifest itself not only in its ability to entertain, but also in the ability to imbue humans with a real sense of power.”

Techniques vary widely, but their efficacy is real. So whether you bolster your confidence by tuning into your inner alter ego, listening to comedy, meditating, or rocking out to some music, there’s no right or wrong answer, just a variety of highly personal approaches. This was evidenced at a recent team meeting, when we asked teammates to name their go-to pump-up song. Answers ranged widely – from Win by J-Rock to Shallow by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. So, if our readers are in need of some self-confidence boosting music, we are happy to present the Chenmark Pump Up Playlist.
