    This is a response I wrote at a different forum, I don't feel like rewriting my opinion:

    Part of the issue with this is that it's impossible to define the genres. What is rap? What is country? What is rock? What is jazz?

    For example, NWA may be angry rap, but Will Smith or Black Star is not, Black Star falls more in line with the sociable, innovative description given to jazz.

    Swing jazz is a lot different from bebop or cool jazz.

    Mettalica is different from Black Sabbath.

    The Beatles are different from Rage Against the Machine, ect.

    Indie music could be almost anything...

    And people may even argue that some bands arn't of that genre (i.e. some people consider Led Zeppelin metal, wile others do not.) I read some of a book about music and music genres and it pointed this out. Does each genre have a prototype that fans of the genre can agree on, and if so, how much can a song differ from that prototype and still be the same genre? If Sing Sing Sing is a prototypical jazz song, is John Coltrane jazz? (which was actually debated when he came out, by the way).

    And as I mentioned before, what if you listen to all those genres, like myself? I would say the soul music lover's description describes me most, but soul isn't my favourite genre.

    So while I did find the study interesting (hence posting it) it's still mostly B.S. due to crappy methodology and vague definitions.

    and I guess it's perfectly in keeping with both the article and MBTI, that I like literally ALL types of music... in my car I have homemade CD's and on one of them could be everything from obscure Arabic folk music to Noel Coward, Janis Joplin, Deep Purple, Ella Fitzgerald, U2, Madonna, A Perfect Circle, Slayer, a Chopin piano etude...

    Well, I do indeed like classical music and some opera -- I'm also going to guess that film soundtracks are considered classical music. I don't mind metal. I absolutely hate jazz and country. Pop, rap, and soul are just dumb.

    The study didn't say anything about people who like William Shatner music.

    I seem to fit the description of the Classical music fan.

    I don't know..I listen to everything pretty much. And I know that I'm not a lot of things as a person in general, lol.

    That's exactly what Pierre Bourdieu said, and he studied this sociologic field during many years. Congratulations.

    And yes, I would really doubt that music taste could ever define personality, since it is mostly inherited through social surroundings.

    which proves that the entire correlation is bullshit.

    What if you have something like this on your iPod and listen to it in your car?
