Music and personality
In a study that involved people getting to know each other through personal playlists of 10 songs, researchers found that the music choice of individuals proved to be pretty reliable when it came to predicting their personalities. Although the study was only done on young adults, the results were still pretty interesting. Here are a few examples of what they found:
Jazz Listeners: Creative, high self-esteem, easy going.
Rap listeners: Outgoing, high self-esteem.
Country listeners: Hard working, outgoing.
Soul listeners: Creative, high self-esteem, gentle, at ease.
Now of course these are just a few examples in one particular study, but it is interesting to see that, at least to a certain extent, our musical tastes can give people clues to our personalities.
