Does music represent who and what you are in life?. Eg ive known a lot of gothy kids to grow up and be quite good at technical work because they are calm and rational and get decent jobs (and kick out the foundation and lipstick at the weekends!), and a few punk loving people i know are so rebellious they end up working in bars and stuff and not having a lot of money. Some people i know who only listen to pop/chart music work 9-5 and try to fit in the crowd a lot.

That's just silly.

I represent who I am, not one singular interest.
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.

Another time I was watching lesbian porn and masterbating, when my mom walks in. Like, right as I climax. She's just standing there with her mouth wide open and I'm like "I was curious...go gay rights!" Fu.cking awkward...

It gives me self-confidence at times, as I've got a taste quite different from almost anyone else I know, so I use that at times when I'm feeling a bit poopy
And also, to be fair, Motley Crue for party rock is pretty awesome It's like what could've happened to rum DMC if they were white N' Hairy

Music, whether I make it, see it, or listen to it, is not the sole important factor in my life, but a life without music is not a life I can see enjoying.
#10
i think so, i like to listen to music according to mood,

for example, happy songs when im happy?

sad songs when im depressed.

But to represent who someone is may be pushing it.

And according to my research, ska fans end up becoming high school physics teachers!

I'd like to see how you compiled these observations, because I haven't noticed anything along those lines, aside from maybe top 40 listeners being a little less involved in hunting for music, which is a chicken and egg sorta question anyway.

To a certain extent, yes, I think it does.

then you are a music *****, which is good.

im talking about people who are deeply influenced by the music and who talk the talk and wear the clothes etc. Another example a lot of jazz musicians i know are pretty introverted but sociable in their own circles and can be seen by your office working pop listening person as a bit wacky
#14
it does to the extent that a specific taste in music leaves you open to be stereotyped more ofetn

To some extent it can shape who you are. Most of us are first consciously exposed to music in our teen years. I got in to it a lot earlier than most of my peers because of my older brothers, and I was in to all the 90's pop music when I was 12/13. At this age your real social ambitions begin to appear.

I didn't stay like that though, I quickly moved on to more unpopular music. I think this distanced me from most of my peers. Music is a way to bond with people. If I was still in to pop rock I'd probaby be a lot more extroverted. I could talk about how much I love My Chemical Romances' new album, or go to a Fall Out Boy concert with a bunch of fanatic teenage girls, but that's not me.

It somewhat defines me. I listen to alot of Beatles, The Who, Pink Floyd, and The Grateful Dead. I'm a pacifist, and I enjoy cannabis and LSD. So, I guess you could say it defines me, or is a big part of my life to say the least.

Well, I listen to just about all genres with the exception of folk, country, contemporary adult top 40, 80s pop, and trendy music like Persian groove, but my identity is certainly not some mass conglomeration of all the other music cliques out there. Lots of them are inherently opposite, like punk vs. classical and metal vs. pop, so in a sense I've probably just gotten to the point where music simply doesn't affect me anymore.
#19
i think people try to associate with their music but it doesn't define who you are. I lov hard metal rock stuff, pantera for example, but if you looked at me it would be the last choice. I think that people try to look like that they see their genre as. if that makes any sense
