Scientific studies and reported in media. We all know how it works. The findings from last week are squashed by new findings this week. And next week will bring yet another study with completely different answers.
With that in mind we present a study where over 36,000 people from all over the world were asked to rate 104 musical styles. They also answered questiones about aspects of their personality.
The goal? To find out if there is a connection between what music you like and what type of person you are. And the answer? Yes!
Like listening to reggae? Then you'll likely not a hard working person, but you're creative, at ease and outgoing.
Chart pop? High self-esteem, not creative, hardworking, outgoing, gentle, not at ease.
Jazz? High self-esteem, creative, outgoing and at ease.
Read more about various musical styles here. And remember; if you don't like what the study says, chances are another one will be along in a couple of weeks to refute this one.
