Another of those reports from the wilder shores of science to remind us that the expansion of the universities was perhaps a waste of money. Partly because the subjects being studied in that desperate race to publish and rack up the research credits seems so marginal, partly because the conclusions drawn are so at odds with obvious reality. What type of music you like listening too is a guide to your personality:
People who like easy-listening music are likely to be talkative and energetic, while opera lovers are more insightful and imaginative, according to scientists.
Two major studies conducted by psychologists from Cambridge and top US universities have found your personality type can be accurately predicted from your musical tastes – and vice versa.
Well, no, not really. Easy listening music encourages being talkative to cover the dross up, we’re all only interested in opera when we’re being imaginative – you need to be so to think it’s worth listening to.
