Tell me what music you like and I will tell you who you are.

I listen to a lot of old songs; songs mostly in the 80s and early 90s. With the exception maybe of Coldplay and Damien Rice which are still doing music until now, but the songs I’m digging are those that I grew up listening to in high school and college.

The research, which was carried out by Professor Adrian North of Heriot-Watt University, is said to be the largest such study ever undertaken. It suggested classical music fans were shy, while heavy metal aficionados were gentle and at ease with themselves. Professor North described the research as “significant” and “surprising”. He said: “We have always suspected a link between music taste and personality. This is the first time that we’ve been able to look at it in real detail. No-one has ever done this on this scale before.”
