Recent scientific research shows that your favorite music genre is closely related to your personality. Professor Adrian North from Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK, has done a lot of research about musical tastes and concluded that people really define themselves through music and treat others through it. For example, many people believe in the stereotype that fans of such genre as heavy metal are depressed or overly aggressive. In fact, their character is very close to that of those who prefer listening to instrumental and classical music.
