every social cirlce with some random standards have some random dude/chic into it just to fit a trend, shout slogans and "act like you're supposed to". that's being human and to an extent very conformist.
to make an example, i have several punk friends. once i was with them i refused to take drugs and they all looked at me like i was crazy or something "i never heard of a punk who doesn't take drugs!" and i was like "never heard about punks being mindless conformists!" and that's how i scored that night ah!
The music one likes have to do with one's personality. My mother once wrote psychology article about music, but it was so controversial no one wanted to publish it, they even asked her to destroy all evidence and never make it public by any means.
I'll ask her if she still has a copy of the file and might share it here, but I believe there will be many users that will be offended (like 80% or more)
Nope. I've never heard of rap being associated with violence or country music being associated with stupidity. I have heard metal being associated with violence (amongst satanism and general craziness).
As far as the metal stereotype goes, I would have to disagree with that one. Yeah, there are crazy metal people, but I don't think it can be fully generalized to produce a correlation. Speaking anecdotally, I listen to metal and am relatively laid back, my roommate listens to metal and is super chill, and most of the people I've met that listen to metal are pretty normal [outside of concerts].
Also, many metal people have a respect for classical music, which is actually similar at its roots. The stereotypes for those are conflicting, leading to an issue.
That goes for many of the music stereotypes-- people may listen to multiple genres. Often times the stereotypes clash with each other, or become so negative it's unrealistic.
So on the whole, I'd disagree. The stereotype becomes so general here that it cannot adequately predict any music-to-nature correlation. They're just people.
I don't believe in stereotypes at all in any sense of the word. I am a death metal vocalist and I don't live up to the stereotype that I should be withdrawn, angry, dangerous, or a freak. (okay maybe a little on some of the things) but I am by far not even close to the stereotype.
