A Study Links the Music You “Like” on Facebook to Your Personality




A study shows links between your Facebook ‘likes’ and your personality…specifically your “openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism.”  It was conducted in 2015, but the results were just released.

For example, the “most open” people ‘liked’ Tom Waits and Björk

…the “least open” liked Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean

…the “most extroverted” liked Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame…

…and the “least agreeable” liked Marilyn Manson, Rammstein, Placebo, and Judas Priest.

The “most neurotic” also liked Manson and Placebo, plus The Smiths, Bring Me the Horizon, and Escape the Fate.

(The “New York Times” has more results.  Note:  The “Times” has a paywall, so you may not be able to access it.)
