I don't think so, my musical taste is very eclectic, but then again my personality is a combination of lots of those traits, so maybe it does have some truth in it. I really want to believe you can't generalize like that, though.

I don't buy it. I think your taste in music tells something about you, but it's not a reliable way to judge someone's personality.

"They were asked to rate 104 musical styles in the study and were also questioned on aspects of their personality." There you go. Questioning them on aspects of their personality isn't exactly the most reliable method. Maybe if a personality test had been administered I would take this study a bit more seriously.

The write up was terrible. Left a lot to be desired. Any better links?

I haven't read the article, but I suppose it is, to a degree. I know that as my personality mellowed out, so did my liking for hard rock.

I have full faith that your choice of music is your choice of personality. Mood and personality are all affected by music. I choose music based on mood and my mood changes on the music. What I do and think also changes based on music. Though I doubt I am the best candidate for study as music is kind a spiritual thing for me. It's an inseparable part of me.
