“Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.”
Genres And Our Personalities
There’s been a lot of research about different music genres and how it reflect the individuals personality. A research carried out by Adrian North of Heriot-Watt University, of more than 36,000 participants around the globe, proves that one’s music preference and personality type are closely related.
“People do actually define themselves through music and relate to other people through it but we haven’t known in detail how music is connected to identity,” 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.”
