NT, anything except horribly sad music, and anything with loud grating screaming in it. Tend to end up listening to more modern music, and electronic music.

I'm an NT and I generally find that I like any kind of music that is "catchy", has a good beat, and "speaks to me" (e.g. reflects what I feel or think). Never liked what I would call "lyrics centered music" such as country or rap.

I do like metal, death metal, dubstep, epica, trailer music, and music that I grew up with (because it makes me nostalgia)

Alternative (especially from the 90s), classic, rock...pretty much certain songs from any genre except for country, gospel, and grindcore. I can't stand those.

SJ - I have a wide range of musical taste, it has to move me in some way, be interesting, and creative. What I generally do not like- Commercial country, heavy metal, pop, hardcore rap. Good luck on your experiment.

NT here.

For listening/enjoyment purposes only I tend to gravitate towards music that is complex/has elements in it that I can analyze and make me think. I also like music that is "grand".

I prefer Progressive Rock/Metal and Romantic Classical Music

Between the buried and me
Dream Theatre
Mastodon
Protest the Hero
Liszt
Debussy
Rachmaninoff
Muse
Radiohead
Jason Mraz (huh?)


Music I tend to avoid:
Bubblegum pop (unless I'm out at the clubs/parties just having fun)
Hip Hop without melody or lyrical depth
Country
Easy Listening

About everything except commercial RnB crap. Most of the time it's metal though. I like it's complexity and passion.

NT

Tastes run the gamut but primarily...

- Melodic Punk (think slower punk of the 70's, 80's as opposed to Hardcore)
- Punk inspired Hard Rock (think some of the Grunge movement, Riot Grrrl movement, or mid 90's bands like The Offspring)
- Melodic Metal (Fan of Symphonic Metal, Industrial, and bands like Metallica who wrote complex songs that were still memorable and riff-tastic)

Dislike
- Country. Just not hard enough for me most of the time and I have trouble relating to the lyrics.
- Hip Hop. Not a fan of people who can't play instruments. Also too vocal & bass focused.
- Screamcore/Various growly Metal. You can do a growl? Yay. Now try singing.

I would say SJs are probably drawn to some classical (not the experimental ones in the 20th century) and country, as well as pop, gospel, rock (again, not the experimental variety). I like metal myself, though not nearly as much as Classical.

Hello, twin. My favorite bands are Symphony X and Dream Theater (right now). As for composers: Beethoven, Mahler, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff, Shostakovich, Wagner, Bach. The dominance of German-Russians is not accidental. Something in their culture really clicks with me.

I'm an NT. I do like oldies, but not so much classical and Jazz. I also listen to country, but I'm from Texas so maybe that's more nurture than nature.

I don't listen to music that doesn't have good lyrics. I mostly ignore the actual nuances of the music and only focus on what's being said. I think that's why country appeals to me. I'd say I'm generally attracted to the overall musical theme, but I'm not the sort of person who can listen to a song and pick out each instrument.

I'm not a big fan of Country, especially the pop sort of Country, but I'll listen to anything if it's well done, and especially if it has more to it than the same damned chord progression IV, V, I.

I usually prefer something on the dissonant side. Unusual metres or polyrhythms don't hurt, but that's a bit hard to come by.

If you're looking for correlations between types and music, I don't expect you're going to find all that much beyond a tendency for introverts to prefer more dissonance.

There does seem to be more than a few prog metal fans here though. It may be a statistical anomaly though.

Thanks, Kisai. I passed them along to our son, so they'll be showing up on the family playlist.

I like inventive music. While composers like Rachmaninoff and Chopin create many beautiful pieces, they're not very adventurous. To be truly inventive is to take unusual elements- and make something so exquisitely beautiful and unique out of it. To me, that's the role of dissonance and unusual meters in my music taste. It's unusual and keeps your brain alive. BUT it has to really work in the piece. Too many failed experiments out there. In this aspect Shostakovich, Stravinsky and Prokofiev really shine.

Prog metal seems to be quite an introspective genre.
