Yeah, that's a daft idea. Too many people do poorly in such environments.

My filters are variable. Noise is generally bad for me; I need a quiet environment for best results. I can filter things out. Trouble is, I do it by leaving this universe. Now at the near end of transit, all this does is blot out my awareness of ambient input, which means I won't hear people trying to get my attention until they make a really loud noise or grab me, at which point I yelp and jump. But at the far end, I become invisible, and people trip over me. That happens to my partner about once a month, which he finds very annoying. And I'll drift like that if I simply forget to maintain my focus on this layer of reality. It makes life ... interesting.
