Great question, however as Nick pointed out, I don't feel it is a good fit here. I already asked how History.SE feels about it just in case. We'll see what others think ...

It is not clear how the paper by Ylias and Heaven (2003) addresses background noise. They do refer to and discuss another study as part of their introduction, but their study focuses on television distraction effects, not music. It seems more appropriate to reference the old original study in your answer, and also highlight the differences in personality types.

comment Is there a limit to how many skills a person can master?
Welcome to CogSci. We generally expect more scientifically rooted answers. Care to add some references to those statements? Additionally, even assuming the overly simplistic '10,000 hours of practice', what about maintaining a gained skill, what about conflicting skills, what about physiological limits, ...? In your defense, I feel the question is too broad and should be closed.
