    Music = Personality

    Post  RyanLiu on Tue Apr 13, 2010 11:48 pm

    Beside math, music is a global language anyone can understand. The first musical instruments found were dated back to 7000 BC showing that music has been a staple of daily human lives even back then, but in this modern world, what does your favorite music tell about your personality? A survey by researchers in the psychology department at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh asked 36,000 music lovers worldwide to describe their personality traits, and then to list their favorites genres of music. The results show a direct connection to what music people enjoy and their personality. For example people who enjoy:

    Indie were found to have low self-esteem and little motivation, but described themselves as creative and extremely outgoing.

    Rock 'n' Roll were found to have high self-esteem, creative, hard-working and at ease with themselves, but not very kind or generous.

    Blues were found to have high self-esteem, creative, outgoing and at ease with themselves.

    Country & Western were found to be hard-working and outgoing.

    Dance were found to be creative and outgoing but not kind or generous, slightly self-centered.

    Rap: were found to have high self-esteem, extremely outgoing, bold, a lot of self-confidence.

    ** Heavy Metal were found to be creative and at ease with themselves and have high self-esteem, but not very outgoing or hard-working.

    ** Classical were found to have high self-esteem, are creative and at ease with themselves, but not outgoing.

    ** The study has shown that lovers of classical music share much of the same personality traits as a heavy metal fan. According to Professor Adrian North (the leader of the study) both heavy metal and classical fans are united, meaning that hard-core Metallica fans have a higher chance to try Beethoven music than Country fans are willing to try Kayne West.

    Music is clearly an important factor in people’s unique personality along with what they say and do on a regular basis. The research has shown that people start to bond with their music because it is profoundly linked to their identity. No matter who you are, you will ultimate prefer one genre of music over another.

    Besides math, music is a global language anyone can understand. The first musical instruments found were dated back to 7000 BC and showed that music has been a staple of everyday life even way back in the past. But, in this modern world, what does your favorite music tell about your personality? A survey by researchers in the psychology department at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh asked 36,000 music lovers worldwide to describe their personality traits and list their favorites genres of music. The results show a direct connection to what music people enjoy and their personality. For example people who enjoy:

    Rock 'n' Roll were found to have high self-esteem and were also discovered to be creative, hard-working, and at ease with themselves but not very kind or generous.

    Blues were found to have high self-esteem and were also discovered to be creative, outgoing and at ease with themselves.

    Rap were found to have high self-esteem, and were also discovered to be extremely outgoing, bold, and have a lot of self-confidence.

    Country and Western were found to be hard-working and outgoing.

    Indie were found to have low self-esteem and little motivation, but described themselves as creative and extremely outgoing.

    Dance were found to be creative and outgoing but not kind or generous, but were found to be slightly self-centered.

    ** Heavy Metal were found to be creative and at ease with themselves and have high self-esteem, but not very outgoing or hard-working.

    ** Classical were found to have high self-esteem, are creative and at ease with themselves, but not outgoing.

    ** The study has shown that lovers of classical music share much of the same personality traits as heavy metal fans. According to Professor Adrian North (the leader of the study), both heavy metal and classical fans like music that is dramatic and theatrical, meaning that hard-core Metallica fans have a higher chance to try Beethoven music than country fans are willing to try Kayne West.

    Music is clearly an important factor in people’s unique personality, along with what they say and do on a regular basis. The research has shown that people start to bond with their music because it is profoundly linked to their identity. No matter who you are, you will ultimately prefer one genre of music over another. So go out there and meet people with the same interest of music as you, because you’ll soon find out that’s not the only thing you have in common.
