You are what you hear, apparently. 5 September 2008

Or something quite like it. According to the BBC:

Musical tastes and personality type are closely related, according to a study of more than 36,000 people from around the world.

The research, which was carried out by Professor Adrian North of Heriot-Watt University, is said to be the largest such study ever undertaken.

It suggested classical music fans were shy, while heavy metal aficionados were gentle and at ease with themselves.

Professor North described the research as “significant” and “surprising”.

Might be worth a read. My only real question is how you define those who have very wide-ranging tastes, unless we are all “confused”!
