Re: No Correlation, I think!
@dmason361- Glad you enjoyed it. I try to give everyone a fun read every Friday. Maybe the fact that you enjoyed all the music is a sign that you are right that the study is a bit flawed. I think we can get more detailed with this without working too hard. That's what big data is for.

Re: why labeling everything?
@wolfram- Well, I don't think we're categorizing everything for the sake of it. We're trying to learn what makes people be the people they are. Learning how people and brains work seems like a good idea to me. Though I agree that paying too much attention to it takes away soem of the romance.

Re: No Correlation, I think!
I agree that people listen to different music depending on their moods and music tastes change throughout time.  I think it will be very interesting to find out how music enhances and minimize certain emotions.  This might be able to help people whom have emotional problems

Re: A different take
@yalanand: I agree mate. I would be so happy if these studies actually separated violent people from the rest.a music app that notifies the police and sends you to jail is the first thing we need. Haha.

Re: No Correlation, I think!
I think now music playlists should be configured based on mood. The phone will determine what kind of mood you are in by judging you when you listen to the first two songs. Suppose you are sad and start listening to thrash metal, your phone then adjusts the playlists in a way that the songs go from sadness to songs that makes you happy. It would need lots of previous usage statistics but it can be done.

why labeling everything?
Do we really have to label and categorize everyting? We should accept that people are very different, diverse and colorful. Why do we have to put all these black or white only labels on them? And actually, these labels seems to be permanently tattooed on our foreheads. Once we are categorized, it is hard to change the label we got.

What gives?
I work in IT, but I picked up all the first choices, well except the Morello one (if that one counts); where I chose the second. What gives? Maybe I'm a systemic thinker that cares about your (IT) related problems?
In any case, I would like to point out that none of these songs will make in my collection.

No Correlation, I think!
However, the post was a great read and all the music posted was excellent.  I was entertained throughout.  I agree with the author in that this may require a more in-depth study.

Too Simplistic
Southern Cross and Thunderstruck are actually two of my favorite songs, I have all the AC/DC and CSNY albums. But I suppose I'm much more prone to throw Southern Cross on these days.

I really like Wasting Away Again in Margaritaville, along with everything Buffet and Bob Marley do. I'm pretty sure that means I hate work and wish I was partying on a beach somewhere warm. I'm a complex guy. ;-)
