What is your Personality?

What is your Personality?

Music is the soul of life – and in today's digital life, music permeates every aspect of our lives. We are hooked onto music – plugged in or not – everywhere we go. Most of us define ourselves through the type of music we listen to. They reflect the type of personalities we have and thanks to the researches conducted by psychologists, we have empirical backing when we claim to be introverts or extroverts.

If you want to know more about yourselves, here are a list of type of music and the type of characters attributed to them.

Pop – Extroverted, honest, conventional, hardworking, high self-esteem, less creative and more uneasy.

Rap/Hip Hop – High self esteem, outgoing. It is actually not true that they are more aggressive or violent.

Country – Hardworking, conventional, outgoing, emotionally stable.

Rock/Heavy Metal – Gentle, creative, introverted, suffers from low self-esteem

Indie – Introverted, intellectual, creative, less hardworking, less gentle, passivity, anxiousness and low self-esteem.

Dance – Outgoing and assertive.

Classical – More introverted, at ease with themselves and the world around them, creative, good sense of self-esteem.

Jazz, Blues and Soul – extroverted, high self-esteem, intelligent, creative, at ease.

Researcher Adrian North of Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh who made this research famous said that people sometimes get defensive about their taste in music because music reflects their personalities, and thus is something close to their heart. Subconsciously, we do define ourselves through the music we listen to and these are the identities we wear in public.

They dominantly play songs that are known as “indie dance rock”.

Singapore Grand Prix – Formula 1

Singapore Grand Prix – Formula 1

Yes, yes we know it's happened but just to recap. The annual music event has been masquerading under the car racing event, the Formula 1. Every year, thousands of people throng the pit to squint at the F1 cars that would race by at an average speed of 321 km/h. Sponsors and forward-thinking companies maintain the event each year – everyone is happy and it is indeed an extremely lucrative race.

One of the highlights though (other than the racing event) is the music concerts that are held. Since the beginning of its inception in 2009, the entertainment highlights have been impressive and is getting more and more amazing each year. Music lovers congregate in this once-a-year event and head bang to their favorite artists.

With the tagline “one night only”, the 2011 line up featured Linkin Park, Glee cast, Charice and Mr. Shaggy with his unforgettable bass voice in Mr Bombastic. Different artists were invited to cater to the heterogeneous music groups and each Zone has fun-filled attractions that would keep ticketholders wanting for more. In 2012, Jay Chou, Katy Perry, Big Bang made the list – wowing fans even more while in 2013 we had Rihanna, Justin Bieber, the Killers and again, Big Bang.

A definite success, one wonders what Singapore Grand Prix – Formula 1 2014 will bring to us. Super early bird tickets are out already, aren't you waiting with bated breaths as well?
