CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom — In today’s divisive times, maybe all we really need is music. Musical preferences unite personalities worldwide, according to new research involving more than 50 countries.
A team from the University of Cambridge shows how different singers and songs appeal to similar personality types across the globe. For example, Ed Sheeran’s song “Shivers” appeals to extroverts while neurotic types are likely to be into Nirvana’s “Smells like Teen Spirit.” Agreeable people tend to have Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” or Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow” on their playlist. National borders cannot stop open sorts listening to David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” or Nina Simone.
