Sept 5th 2008, A study of more than 36,000 people from around the world concluded that musical tastes and personality type were closely related.

The research, which was carried out by Professor Adrian North of Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh in the UK suggested classical music fans were shy, while heavy metal fans were gentle and at ease with themselves.

Fans of Indie music had low self-esteem and were not hard working, fans of Rap music had high self-esteem and were outgoing. Country & Western fans were hardworking and outgoing, Reggae fans were creative but not hardworking, and fans of chart pop had high self-esteem, were not creative, but where hardworking and outgoing.

Which one are you?

I'm the guy that listens to Pink Floyd and is "Deeper" than you will ever be.

And you think you're so clever and class less and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see

I had to do that instead of a real lolstack, because the number of lols would exceed the image limit. But dear god

Worked for me. Rock: low self esteem, creative, not hard working, gentle, at ease, not outgoing.


Thanks,

So pretty much, if you listen to blues you win in all categories?

I guess I like indie, rock & metal... which makes me, lazy, shy, creative etc. Pretty good
approximation actually.

based on this research, it would seem I have a personality disorder.

Same.

I am a fan of many genres of music, that would mean I have that many personality traits, some contradictory. Multiple personality disorder ahoy!

Heavy metal hits the nail right on the head for me. I'm probably the most placid person on the planet.

My ideal woman would be a grossly overweight woman who would happy go jogging, come home all sweaty and let me put my dick under her armpit while she shuffles a pack of cards.

Stay classy, pit.

Making a best-guess interpretation of "indie" .. it fits me. I wouldn't say I have low self-esteem but I'm told that I'm creative a lot, I don't know myself to work very hard and I don't know myself to be very gentle either.
i don't know why i feel so dry
#31
I'm confused, I like dance, rock, jazz, blues, rap, reggae and indie....
So what am I?

So should I. hmmmm......

ROCK/HEAVY METAL Low self-esteem, creative, not hard-working, not outgoing, gentle, at ease


Apart from the low self-esteem, this is me.............

Reggae fans were creative but not hardworking

That means they're stoned constantly.

Yea same here.. I guess I have some issues there.

It seems I may have dissociative identity disorder, as I have so many different personalities, maybe I am more than one person!
Wait.
