    No

    Personally, I think that whatever different individuals find appealing in music (and all art for that matter) is so complicated, that personality types couldn't really predict any preference accurately.
    Yes

    (However, maybe F types might get a little more nostalgic over certain songs that they associate with certain people, times and places, do ya think?
    No

    Do any NF's out there NOT like Enya (I'm honestly wondering, and not being sarcastic in the least)?

    My NF mom prefers Lyle Lovett and James Taylor. She's not an Enya fan. I have a male NF friend who might like Enya if he heard it, but his favorite genres are techno and drum & bass.

    Also, I like almost all music. My favorite music is complicated music (though I like uncomplicated music most of the time, too). This includes:
    *Progressive rock/metal (as long as it's melodic - that is, Tool or The Black Mages or Isis, but not not NOT Meshuggah... also, not Dragonforce, because they're so cheesy and yet take themselves so seriously!!)
    *Rock operas (Quadrophenia, Thick as a Brick, Karn Evil 9, The Hazards of Love, etc)
    *Concept albums/concept songs (The Power and the Glory by Gentle Giant, The Island by The Decemberists, 10,000 Days by Tool, etc)
    *Anything that changes time signatures a lot
    *Anything that breaks ground, and seems to have taken a lot of skill, musical knowledge/training and creativity to create (music by Radiohead, Sufjan Stevens, etc)
    *Music by incredible artists (Jimi Hendrix for amazing guitar, Ben Folds for amazing piano, Elliott Smith and Paul Simon for amazing lyrics, Emerson Lake and Palmer for amazing EVERYTHING, etc)
    *Good "classical" music (including baroque, etc). I'm a huge fan of Bach and Ravel.

    Least favorite genres:
    Mainstream hip-hop ('cause it's rude and sexist and many other things)
    Mainstream country (see above)
    Redneck hard rock, e.g. Buckcherry or Kid Rock (see above)
    Mainstream R&B ('cause it's so effing generic!!!)
    Metal with too much yelling

    Kind of like INTPs and their automatic dismissal of anything that sells more than 12 records?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Dunno about that. I know INTPs that absolutely ADORE the Grateful Dead, and collect their live albums. And how many of those ARE there, anyway? Hundreds? Thousands?

    EDIT: Just realized that I totally skipped the point of this thread! Whoops! But anyways, I don't really notice a type-music correlation, except that, since NTs have more of a tendency to be nerdy, they would be more likely to 1. listen to nerdy music (cough dragonforce cough), or 2. listen to techno/electronica/house/drum&bass. Fs might like sad songs more, but I have no factual evidence to back that hypothesis up. There are pretty much NO similarities between the musical tastes of SJs, since they might tend to, with regard to music, follow with someone's preestablished tradition, and that someone could like ANYTHING, from Metallica to Chopin. (Also, see my above post. Does that look like traditional music to you? Probably not! But 90% of the music I like is music that my parents like (or like OKAY) too.)

    ^ Just a little joke. I know a lot of INTPs who are really pretentious about music, but it's not just them.

    Well I don't know about correlation to type, but I definitely choose music for (1) its emotional impact on me and (2) its complexity.

    Regarding (1), I really, really like melancholy music. Not sentimental or nostalgic, just general melancholy. I like it to be sad and reflective. Regarding (2), I really like music with odd instrumentation and abstract noises. I've grown less accepting of music groups who limit themselves to the typical drums, bass, guitars, vocalist routine. Give me sitars, harps, brass instruments, any ethnic instrument, electronically generated noises.

    Also, I'll add a (3)rd dimension. I like for the music to minimal. Music that is TOO decadent can get on my nerves. It needs to be balanced and elegant. This is mostly why I avoid metal and certain types of rock.

    This is more personal than anything, but I tend to prefer female vocalists and I guess you could say "feminine" style of music. Not in that it's girly, but that it has more of a personal, vulnerable style to it. Like a revealing of the psyche.

    - Ti types are predisposed to analytical/satirical music.
    - Te types are predisposed to powerful/commanding music.
    - Fi types are predisposed to heartfelt/passionate music.
    - Fe types are predisposed to charming/persuasive music.

    By this rationale, the fans incarnate of the following bands would be:

    - Bloodhound Gang: XXTP (Full disclosure: I once dated an ISTP megafan.)
    - Rammstein: XXTJ (Enough said.) (Although the band might have to be categorized differently for German speakers.)
    - Depeche Mode: XXFP
    - U2: XXFJ

    There is no need to post disconfirmatory data of the "I listen to <insert band> and I'm an X" sort as I am fully aware that no one listens to only one kind of music. However, disconfirmatory data of the "I'm an X and I don't listen to <insert corresponding kind of music>" will be appreciated, as will refinement of this quick 'n' dirty hypothesis.
    Many primitive fans of Rammstein are ISTJs but in general Rammstein fans are intuitive because the lyrics are so abstract.
