Your Music = Your Personality

I ran across an interesting study indicating that the music you listen to reflects your personality. Adrian North, a UK professor, carried out his research with 360,000 people in 60+ countries and looked at a large variety of music styles. Here are his conclusions:

Blues fans have high self-esteem, are creative, outgoing, gentle and at ease
Jazz fans have high self-esteem, are creative, outgoing and at ease
Classical music fans have high self-esteem, are creative, introvert and at ease
Rap fans have high self-esteem and are outgoing
Opera fans have high self-esteem, are creative and gentle
Country and western fans are hardworking and outgoing
Reggae fans have high self-esteem, are creative, not hardworking, outgoing, gentle and at ease
Dance fans are creative and outgoing but not gentle
Indie fans have low self-esteem, are creative, not hard working, and not gentle
Bollywood fans are creative and outgoing
Rock/heavy metal fans have low self-esteem, are creative, not hard-working, not outgoing, gentle, and at ease
Chart pop fans have high self-esteem, are hardworking, outgoing and gentle, but are not creative and not at ease
Soul fans have high self-esteem, are creative, outgoing, gentle, and at ease

 

I just thought this was an interesting tidbit to pass on to you. For more details, read Preferred Music Style Is Tied to Personality. Before clicking on that link, though, be sure to put on those headphones and rev up your tunes.

 

 

What Our Clutter Says About Us

What part of your home do you feel comfortable allowing clutter to gather?  Care2’s Green Living author Shubhra Krishan suggests that specific cluttered rooms reflect who we are:

  • A packed basement is a sign that you are loyal and emotional.
  • A crowded linen closet shows you are a creative person.
  • A full kitchen table indicates that you are a nurturer and preserver.
  • An overflowing bedside table is a clue to your curious and bright personality.

For her explanation of each, go to http://www.care2.com/greenliving/what-your-clutter-says-about-you.html.

As for me, I now know that I’m a loyal, emotional, creative person who nurtures   those around her, that l long to can strawberry preserves, and that I am curious and bright enough to learn how to do it.  How about you?
