According to Metropol, the musical genres were divided into five groups. “Soft” (contemporary music with soft rock, R&B and romantic lyrics and low vocals), “intense” (classic rock, punk, heavy metal and power pop), “contemporary” (electronic music, rap, Latin and Euro) -pop), “sophisticated” (classical, opera and jazz) and “fuzzy” (comfort and country music).

The researchers found that extroverts tended to prefer “contemporary” style songs, while more organized and lovable individuals preferred “obvious” group songs. It seems that anxious and pessimistic people listen to more “intense” music.

David Greenberg, the study’s lead author, told Metropoles, “We were surprised by how much these patterns between music and personality were replicated around the world. People can be divided by geography, language, and culture. But if an introvert in one part of the world enjoys the same music as an introvert in another, it suggests that music can be a very powerful bridge. Music can help people understand each other and find common ground. does.”
