From which one would predict that APers would make especially poor

From Parncutt & Levitin, Absolute Pitch: (abstracted)
They, AP possessors, may work out integrated qualities (intervals
and chords) by reconstructing them from the notes (note names),
rather than perceiving an 'integrated' sonority (Miyazaki, 1992,
1993). There is the proposition that "melody" is not heard, but
rather a string of pitches passing by.
APers hearing melodies as "a string of pitches" also doesn't account for
the fact that many APers do enjoy music.
