Think back to a time when someone insulted your favorite musician or band. Did you take it personally? Recent research suggests that an individual’s favorite music genre is closely related to their personality traits. Professor Adrian North of Heriot-Watt University located in Edinburgh, UK, conducted a study that shows the correlation between musical tastes and personality type. North is an expert in music psychology and he has carried out extensive research on the psychology of music in the social aspect. Specifically, he has studied the relationship between pop music culture and why some adolescents may behave defiantly y when growing up. Professor Adrian North has been able to also make correlations that connect consumer behavior, and how music plays an important role in our lifestyles.

Over the past few years, Professor North has conducted a worldwide study that links musical taste and your unique personality. North asked participants to rate over one hundred different genres of music, followed by a series of personality-based questions. More than 36,000 people in over 60 countries participated in the survey to find out if there were in fact correlations between personality traits and their music taste.
