Can you tell something about someone based on what kind of music they listen to?
Some suggested this in response to my post wondering if there were better questions to ask than "What do you do?" when trying to learn about someone.
Cognitive Daily blog suggests that it can be revealing, especially in young adults, who have stronger tastes.
Some readers have emailed me asking what kind of music I listen to — I list books and movies, but no music. I’m not a music buff, which is why I don’t write about it, but I do have some 500 songs on my iPod and listen to a very eclectic mix. Which is, indeed, a good reflection of my overall interests and personality.
