If someone judged you solely based on your taste in music, what would they think about you?

If someone judged you solely based on your taste in music, what would they think about you?
Let's say that a curious stranger stumbles upon your music gallery and decides to scroll through it. What kind of person would they be picturing in their head by the time they're finished snooping through your music?

  • They would think that I have a severe case of schizophrenia or that I'm simply messing with them.

    First they would be rather unsurprised hearing random hits from the 80s and the 90s. (Jackson, Bowie, Queen, Laura Branigan)
    But then my playlist would hit them with the rubber ducky song, followed by orchestra of Edvard Grieg, a bunch of mind-numbing K-pop, the Pokemon theme song and finally some symphonic metal by Within Temptation and the Lucifer TV show OST.

    I don't really have any genre I like.
    If it sounds nice I will listen to it.

    • Haha, I suppose we're both schizophrenics, then. The content on my playlist ranges from the main hits of the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic periods to everything from the Jazz Era to the full soundtrack of Shrek 1 and 2 to random throw-ins such as the Gummy Bear Song and Crazy Frog.

    • The Gummy Bear song, aah quite.
      The signature of us refined folks, I would expect nothing less of you.

      I had a phase where I went to the official gummy bear channel and started listening to all the regional variants of the song.

  • Well, they'd think I'm weird. My taste is very diverse, it ranges from rock from the 70s to modern stuff from all over the world. Some classics are thrown in there, some absolute bollocks (tunak tunak tun, the seventh element) and some very odd stuff (medieval stuff). Then there are the more civilized things like Coldplay, Luther Vandross but then that's countered with the single biggest abomination known to mankind, Koningslied. It would also be hard to understand why half my playlist is Hebrew, other English, with some German, Dutch, French, Russian and Punjabi thrown in there.

  • They'll get goosebumps based on whatever they listen in my playlist. I have some rock, rap rock, nu metal and all that high rise songs.
    Can't say what they'll think about me but, they'll realise, they have been hearing shit until then.

  • They might think I'm multiple different people ๐Ÿ˜‚ My music taste is so fluid that you'd honestly never think it's all one person's preference.

    m.youtube.com/playlist

    This is my current YouTube playlist! It's all of my current jams all in one spot! You'll see how it'll switch from a rock song to a Mozart real quick ๐Ÿ˜‚ And then from Mozart to techno, and then from that to ambient or some calm and pretty piano music haha.
    My taste is really fluid.. But I'm always one for lyrics, a story, and especially how the music itself sounds! If the lyrics are absolutely horrible and completely meaningless, I most likely wouldn't listen to it unless it has an *amazing* beat to make up for the slack in lyrics.
    The first song in my playlist never fails to get me hype, though! I love that song to bits!
    Nonetheless! Whoever listens to my playlists would definitely find be an interesting and quirky person. You can flip through it if you'd like! In general, however, I have a favoritism towards rock songs! The very first few songs and the last couple of songs on my playlist are my favorite spots currently ๐Ÿ˜
    Nice question!

  • They would think I'm a well-rounded open-minded individual with a fine appreciation for all kinds of music and styles. They'd also probably think I'm depressed because I've been told by @disgustingweebtrash that some of the music I listen to is very depressing so *shrug*

    • Haha, I'm the same way! Maybe they would think that we suffer from multiple personalities or an identity crisis. XD

    • Lol yes! :D its good to have a mix though, never really understand how some people only seem to listen to one category of music and thats it.

  • that I'm Christian, deep, alone, think a lot, and am slightly emo or misunderstood or feel that way anyways. i have a lot of NF, and other artists that have a lot of strong expressive lyrics, and then just regular praise songs or life songs with Christian influences.
