Who do you think you are?


Well, according to research done by Dr. Jason Rentfrow at Cambridge University, your taste in music says a lot about your personality.
Our personalities influence the types of music we like to listen to and those we avoid.
So be careful about letting a new love interest look at your iPod collection, because this is what your taste in music says about you.

People who like classic/folk and jazz are creative and imaginative, with good verbal ability.
(Though the classical music lovers are perceived as less attractive and a bit boring)

Pop music fans are sociable extroverts who are warm, chatty and dependable, but less intelligent.

Rock fans are natural rebels who are artistic, imaginative but emotionally unstable.

Rap fans are more hostile than the rest, but are energetic, self-respecting and athletic

Electronica fans are a bit neurotic.

(Having confessed to liking Pendulum on my blog a few weeks ago I think I’ll keep quiet about my taste in music after this!)

I like the way most outcomes have a positive and negative aspect, e.g. you're either dependable but less intelligent or artistic but emotionally unstable. All except for those who like electronica who are simply 'neurotic'
