I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right section, so feel free to move this thread if that's necessary.
Basically, I had a job interview today and they asked me what kind of music I like "because that usually says a lot about who people really are". So I tried to explain my preferences a bit and their reaction was: "Oh, I kind of saw that coming". But then again, I know quite a few people whose favourite artists and genres I never would have guessed (based on personality/lifestyle/appearance), so I guess you can't always predict these things.
For me this was definitely food for thought, so I thought this would be an interesting idea for a thread.
What do others think of this? Does personality define people's taste in music, or perhaps it's the other way around? Discuss!
