There are many genres of music. Pop, rock, classical, jazz, healing, reggae, ambient, EDM, etc. Just as each person likes different foods and clothes, so does his favorite music. For the genre of music, we know that the music that an individual likes reflects his or her personality traits. There is interesting data from a university study that there is a link between musical taste and personality.
Music taste and personality
Professor Adrian North of Heriot-Watt University divided over 36,000 people around the world into 104 music genres and investigated his favorite genres and his own personality. Announced the results that types are closely related. We know the relationship between people who like each music genre and their personality. Furthermore, since this survey is conducted regardless of nationality, region, or race, it is a tendency that can be said for all human beings. These characteristics are said to have universality that transcends cultural and ethnic differences.

Music when a teenager
The New York Times, an American newspaper, reports that the music genre that most people listened to when they were teenagers had a major impact on their lives. For men, the music you listen to between the ages of 13 and 16 affects your future life, and for women, the music you listen to when you are 11 to 14 years affects your later life. The genre of music you listen to as a teenager influences a person’s life, personality, and characteristics.
A data survey by Japanese research firm NRI Insight Signal has shown that music preferences change over time. Rock and pop tastes are common to all ages, but we’ve found that some genre tastes are clearly different.
They like anime and game music, and They tend to like introverts, negatives, and one person compared to other age groups. He likes adventure, but seems to have anxiety somewhere. Furthermore, there are many generations who like EDM.
Many people tend to like folk jazz and classical music, and they tend to be more positive than other age groups and prefer tradition and security. You can see that we do not want too much change and want to maintain the status quo. They also tend to like soundtracks and ambient music.
