Researcher Professor Adrian North of Heriot-Watt University UK claims to have documented clear connections between your personality and your musical tastes.
If his research is to be believed, Dance Music fans are creative, outgoing and “not gentle”.
Meow! I think he nailed this study!
Other personality/music links:
- Jazz – High self-esteem, creative, outgoing and at ease
- Country – Hardworking, outgoing
- Indie – Low self-esteem, creative, not hard working, not gentle
- Heavy Metal – Low self-esteem, creative, not hard-working, not outgoing, gentle, at ease
North interviewed 36,000 people in order to come up with these results.
Interesting stuff, but I’d rather know if Aphex Twin fans are really closet homicidal maniacs.
Let me know what you think of this research in the comments!
