I'm getting the feeling there are no particular trends here.
Lol, I'm getting that feeling too - at least, in terms of genre. But in terms of why particular music is chosen, there might still be something. Kind of.
I might as well share mine, though:
I will listen to most things that are shared with me, i.e. there is very little music that I absolutely loathe. My favorite music is music that creative or splashy or impressive in some way, be it instrumentation (e.g. Sufjan Stevens and his oboe/banjo/etc. arrangements), songwriting (e.g. Elliott Smith), instrument technique (e.g. Rodrigo y Gabriela), or structure (e.g. progressive rock/metal and its changing time signatures).
The music that I really hate, though, is music that isn't pleasing to the ears. I know that's a weird definition... but there's dissonance and then there's DISSONANCE, you know? I really dislike experimental music/free jazz/stuff like that, and I really dislike non-melodic metal where all they do is scream.
80s New Wave
60's, 70's and 80's R&B
Funk and Punk Funk
70s, 80s, 90s soft rock
older country and western, like this: YouTube - Is there anyone going to San Antone - Charley pride
Baroque Pop (mid 1960s Brit pop stuff)
New Agey type stuff
(Tangerine Dream, Palamino Duck, Hiroshima, Vangelius)
Medieval music (Especially French and English)
Windham Hill (Especially their seasonal mixes)
Some other stuff like Alan Parsons Project, Art of Noise or this, or this and Quiltman but maybe that counts in the New Agey section?
I like lots of other stuff but the stuff listed above is what my personal playlists contain
I doubt there's much of a trend as to genre. I do, however, think different types likely approach music from a different perspective. My istj best friend, who is an excellent guitarist with plenty of FEELING (yes feeling, istj's are not robots), has broadened his taste somewhat but for the most part picks a few things out he likes about music and listens only to music that fits that profile, be it an adherence to basic precepts of the blues, a particular guitar tone, etc. An esfp female I know likes anything and everything, and an enfp female I know mostly likes quirky indie music and classical.
I can't really explain what it is I like in the music I listen to; I'm attracted to genuine feeling that I can connect to, but I don't think that's always the case. I do like some jazz fusion and avant garde, for instance, that most people just don't really care for, and I think its primary intention is to be a mindf*ck rather than express emotion. There's plenty of heartfelt music I happen to think is shit. I like originality, but that in itself can't make something good. I don't really care for super technical prog metal type stuff, but I can typically find something from just about every genre I like.

Uhhh, yeah thats all I can think of
A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes,
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them,
and now it's left me blind...
I like rock (classic, progressive), metal (NWOBHM, symphonic, melodic, progressive) and grunge, and I'm a huge sucker for movie scores, especially those with heavy emphasis on strings. I was a band geek in high school, so I enjoy listening to classical music, specifically J.S. Bach's works for flute, or Holst's military suites (they're so fun to play on piccolo...). Generally, I love technical/virtuosic pieces rather than emotive, romantic ones. I also love dramatic key changes in all genres of music.
3 Doors Down
I like music that evokes strong emotions, either sad, introspective, joyous, mystical, etc. I don't listen to much pop, reggae, or hip hop. Those forms can be entertaining, but not usually enlightening, not for me at least. I listen to music that enlightens me in some way. The particular bands don't matter, but all the bands I listen to frequently have this effect on me.
I think that is related to type.
However, all 16 types could like the exact same band, but for different reasons. So, once we start naming specific bands without going into the specific reason we like that band, there will be no distinction between types...
