The idea that character traits may be related to the preference of a particular genre of music or cinema appeared among psychologists in the middle of the 20th century. But a recent study published in the journal Psychology of Music does not support this idea.
The authors of the article are researchers of 379 volunteers aged 18 to 65 years. Scientists have found out what kind of music they like, what character traits they have and whether they have a tendency to psychopathic manifestations.
They eventually found no correlation. Only one weak point: people who exhibit aggressive behavior often turned out to be lovers of country and other "conservative" genres.
