    Music has to be hypnotic and familiar, so my musical preferences differ when it comes to what emotions I am familiar with and what moods I can get into. I can't exactly listen to antagonistic and aggressive music, overly experimental music(which to me alot of the times feels emotionally void in that they try too hard to focus on interesting and distracting effects rather than mood), simplistic music where the lyrics makes the singer's life seem boring as fuck(this comment is 100% towards Country music) alongside music that is way too verbose and dramatic like metal music where the singers are all white with white beards in a white background (power metal) and they just cheesily yell everything as if yelling is an emotion. I think the common theme with my taste is that it's easier for my imagination and heart to get involved with music that doesn't force you to feel a certain way or is about specific events rather than relatable moods or values, or is just too boring or distracting. I love music that catches your attention but you can just listen to it while doing something else and it puts you in a zone.

    The type of music that would be the polar opposite of what I like would be five guys in pirate costumes screaming the 5 most recent events in the main singer's life where the tempo never changes and he just repeats the same lyrics just so the details of his relationship are etched in my brain. A song like that would give me a headache and It's making me sick just thinking about it. Maybe I am not Fi valuing when it comes to music too personal and too boring


    I listen to simple music too though it's just that it's usually not mundane or meaningless, Like folk music for example. Or anything with a simple melody but has the power of affecting you.

    My favorite music has to be powerful, but not pathetic. I dislike most of Rock and Metal. Singer from ACDC sounds like an eunuch. Singers from metal bands sound like vomiting frogs. Pop tends to be pathetic and insignificant too. I mostly get no vibes from it.

    In the last months I'm really into Wardruna (a band that uses old viking instruments), gregorian chants, and muslim chants. I don't care about the lyrics, it's just about the vibe that matters to me. I also tend to like specific songs, and never listen to full albums. I even like mostly specific parts from a song, disliking most of the rest. For example in this song, until 05:35 it's pretty regular. From 05:35 to 05:40 it calms down to prepare the eargasms caused by the part that starts after 05:40:


    Then I really like music with an upbeat rhytm, but original and relaxing riffs, like this one:

    But even if I like this song, there's a part where the singer just screams too much. I sometimes cut parts of songs and make loops out of them, so I can enjoy just the nice part.

    Other important bands for me have been System of a Down, Linkin Park and Metallica.

    What irritates me of classic rock and metal music is that it sounds pompous. I can't take it seriously. Which is funny, since a lot of people that listen to that music would fins my music cringeworthy and pathetic. It works like this, and I'm conscious about it. When I express judgements about things I dislike, I know it applies only to my taste.

    Oh, big thing I noticed now that I'm reading what I just wrote. All the music I like tends to have a melancholic vibe.

    P.S. I just thought about how useless my post is, since I ain't typed.

    I pay the most attention to the lyrics and how much they resonate with me. I listen to mostly classic rock, 90's and today's alternative.

    My favorite band ever is Led Zeppelin. I love their lyrics and they just have this really mystical and fantasy like band persona, a little more on the darker side, that really calls to me and draws me in, not to mention their LOTR themed songs (). I'm a fellow LOTR enthusiast. I like their more folk-like songs the most.

    I like bands with more poetic, deep, or heavy lyrics, slower, and darker in nature. Simon and Garfunkel, Pink Floyd, The Doors, are among my favorites.

    I also like some lighter classic rock like The Eagles, CCR, Steve Miller Band. I refer to The Eagles as my antidepressant band because they always uplift my mood. Crosby Stills Nash and Young are also a favorite. Love their lyrics and their harmonious vocals.

    I listen to AC/DC when I need motivation.

    I'm also a big fan of The Goo Goo Dolls. I like their lyrics a lot.

    I hate rap and hip hop the most, probably. Some pop songs are 'ok' but I don't really like pop music. Like once in a while is ok. I was raised on country music, and I don't really care for it that much either, maybe I'm burnt out, but I don't enjoy listening to it anymore.

    I really enjoy complex musical arrangements with a subjectively pleasurable harmony. I do not like repetitious song structures, especially dance music. I don't pay much attention to lyrics, probably because they are very specific to the mood and circumstances of the artist, and often just do not apply. I don't really look for music to relate to in this kind of way. I just want something musically enjoyable to listen to and isn't too boring. I like some classical music, like some Baroque, Classical, and Romantic Era composers, and movie scores. However, I find much of classical music unenjoyable. I do love the sound of certain instruments, like the piano and the cello. However, I absolutely love the electric guitar and drums together. I love guitar work that changes tempo and keys, that works up and down the neck, and have complex progressions. I love complex drum arrangements. I am really drawn to hard rock and metal for these reasons. I also like lyrics that more idea based, philosophical, and concept based than sentiment or heavy in personal emotional expression, although I can't help but be influenced by such music from time to time(I'm only human).

    If i had to pick a favourite artist/composer, it would probably be J.S. Bach, specifically his sacred cantatas. The blend of beautiful harmony, a moving, often poetic setting of great passages from biblical texts as well as original poems, the great instrumentation and, of course, the contrapunctal movements. Nearly all of them are absolutely divine, and they never fail to move me, often to tears.
    Heres a few i've been enjoying recently.

    Interesting stuff. By and large I would classify my taste in music as "high stress".

    Most of the music I enjoy has a very strong point-of-view. I want my music to have a biased narrator, basically. I want to put myself inside of the mind of the character of the song. I think that's why I'm a huge fan of musical theater; the music is actually sung by a character. I mean, I like "Kim" by Eminem, and that's, like, not even basically a song, it's just a one-man disturbing acting performance with a beat and rhythm. It all relates to what entertains and engages the Ni-Fe within me, mixed with a need for Se energy. Sort of the equivalent of an animal play-fighting in comparison to my normal "serious" use of the information elements.

    I think this is a good example of a typical song that I would enjoy. Driving instrumentation, some punk influences, "high-stress" song themes, clear character point-of-view. As a bonus, it uses the "repeated and/or unfinished-sounding final lyrics" trope, which I absolutely adore (the end of "London Calling" is another example: "I never felt so much a like a like a like a...").

    I'm interested in hearing how other people feel like their music tastes "entertain" their valued functions, or if they relate to that concept at all.

    I'm always looking for ways that change the original music into something unusual and challenging to the headphones/ ears.
    It's manipulating the audio until it seems like it's played elsewhere, creating room/distance. It's something you have to use your imagination with.


    • 8D versions (the music is going around you in circles, it's best to figure out which way doesn't make you dizzy. For me it's better counterclockwise)
    • underwater versions (very soothing)
    • empty arena effects (sometimes with added "weather sounds" or similar)
    • next door audios.


    It's not stretching the entirety of what you can do with existing music. Any fancy EDM remix proves that wrong. But it does go into some possibilities or let's say interesting things for one's experience.


    Unterwater



    8D



    Empty arena



    Next door + thunder/rain



    (Imagine Harry Styles is your neighbour!!!! Or a Harry styles fanboy or fangirl and they're just blasting it lmaoo)

    Here is one with added shower sounds even: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOtNoCz3ABw

    People think I'm weird because I rarely listen to music intentionally. I agree, especially because I'm a musical person. I was in band all throughout school and I enjoy singing. I just don't see much appeal in passively listening to music. Even when driving long distances, I usually sit in silence. As long as I have something interesting to think about. Otherwise I'm more likely to listen to podcasts/talk radio/stand-up comedy than music. I find it hard to concentrate on anything else when music is playing and I get little enjoyment from it other than singing along.

    So when I DO listen to music, I prefer it to be music I know already. I like to know the words so I can sing along. Or if I'm using it as background noise it must be purely instrumental. Preferably classical (I especially enjoy big, dramatic Russian Orchestral stuff), but not necessarily.

    And if I am actually listening for pleasure, I prefer music that is more cerebral than emotional. My personal favorites are Rush and Phish. Tbf, my SEI sister introduced me to both of them. But Phish really works for me especially. I like my music a little weird.

    I also enjoy really over the top loud, inappropriate music sometimes. Mindless Self Indulgence is a band I loved as a teenager and haven't quite grown out of. It's the only band I've ever seen live and it was awesome. I came home with a black eye. (To compare, I've been to many comedy shows. I usually wouldn't think to get tickets to a concert.) Their music involves a lot of high pitched screams/moans and most songs have sexual overtones. But not necessarily in an appealing way.

    I don't enjoy country or hip-hop very much, but there are exceptions. One thing I hate is fucking ballads or anything slow. Every Rose has its Thorn for instance. It's IMO the worst Poison song. I have no idea why it is so popular. I actually love Poison for the most part though.

    I also secretly enjoy musicals a lot.

    And for some reason I get a kick out of Bluegrass. I mean I do live in Missouri so I guess it's not that surprising.

    The songs I listen to tend to be simultaneously somber and elated, and follow a flow of emotion. A few examples:

    I'm impressed how some people are so educated in contemporary music styles. Like alternative industrial indie pop or something like that. But I guess it's just as normal as saying that someone is a Ni-H-LSE sx/so 9w1-7w2-8w8

    Classical music is such a broad field. I'm constantly learning what really exists there. Some nice stuff:

    Wagner, Bruckner, fresh baroque music, Mozarts late symphonies, beethoven, Sibelius, impressionists, or Bach brandenburg concertos, Haydn quartets (great!), Just discovering Mahler (not that easy but I have the rest of my life to explore it), Mozart opera ouvertures.

    But it depends a lot on life situation, mood, current ability to concentrate

    I recommend Schuberts late string quartets. Especially the 15th is a masterpiece, one of my favourite pieces of music.

    Nice. I will listen to it.

    If you like Bach vocal music then I recommend Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied. I used to sing it in a choir, and it still gives me goosebumps as I am listening to it.

    It is a very beautiful piece. That Herreweghe interpretation was new to me, thanks!

    I got basic internet dwelling couch potato taste: dubstep, glitch hop, industrial, trap, EDM, and pop...occasionally I listen to reggaeton ...don't judge me .l.

    I am drawn to music that is lyrical and balanced. I strongly dislike randomness, and prefer the music to evolve organically in a directional manner from a few themes, rather than have a number of different themes jumbled together with unrelated episodic material. I love fast-paced, chromatically embellished runs, for the instruments and voices to call and respond to each other within the music (exchanging the melodies, reversing, and inverting them between themselves), and I love any melodic hooks that can reverberate around my head. I believe melody is the most essential aspect of music, and all the music I like will have noticeably singable melodies even if it isn't scored for a voice.

    Three composers whose scores I find very easy to follow (the means by which they "grow" the music is similar to how I would naturally, without studying) are J.S. Bach, Schubert and Dvorak. A few small themes are stated and then expanded, repeated and transformed in various ways throughout a piece.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zbfhpQ6FNg
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRjKo0QEIuI
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NE39fBORcNY

    By contrast there are some other composers whose scores I find very confusing: these include Haydn, Beethoven and Brahms. It is not clear to me how their music is tied together, because there are a lot of leaps, or a lack of smooth movement that makes you feel like all is connected. Maybe this is a personality trait?

    Lol for real. Maybe if I knew that stuff I'd be able to identify a pattern with the music I've liked. I prefer heavier sounds I guess, I don't mean metal (which can be really good or really bad) but like blues or rock > disco or jazz? Seems like that's a sort of pattern. But that's not set in stone either. I go through periods of time where I only really listen to one type of music. Maybe a constructivist thing. Lately it's moody girl singers.

    The only type of music I think I pretty much uniformly dislike is 80s hair metal. Like having a bratty 16 year old yelling at me about how they shouldn't have to listen to their mom. The rebellion has no depth and the sex is just porn. It's like a plastic mockery of the ethos and it sounds like shit.

    This is so embarrassing, but I went through a stage when I was around 16 where I started experimenting listening to a bunch of different music, trying to find exactly what I liked, and I even got into the classic 80's hair bands. I particularly liked Twisted Sisters song, We Aren't Going to Take It. I went to a ton of different stores searching for that CD and I still have it @ashlesha 's post reminded me of that lol.

    Ah, here it is in all its glory:



    Bahaha. I feel like such a dweeb.

    As an IEI, I listen to a lot of heavy metal and rock music, I don't think it's uncommon among IEIs. I like folk metal, melodic death metal, progressive metal, industrial metal and metalcore, generally I prefer bands that are heavy, but melodic. When it comes to rock, I like hard rock, alternative rock, grunge, 90's music is my biggest music crush, mostly bands like Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden. I also have to say that I can't stand 80's hair metal, but other than that I like most of the rock and metal scene. Art rock is something I've lately gotten into.

I believe melody is the most essential aspect of music, and all the music I like will have noticeably singable melodies even if it isn't scored for a voice.

    Three composers whose scores I find very easy to follow (the means by which they "grow" the music is similar to how I would naturally, without studying) are J.S. Bach, Schubert and Dvorak. A few small themes are stated and then expanded, repeated and transformed in various ways throughout a piece.

    By contrast there are some other composers whose scores I find very confusing: these include Haydn, Beethoven and Brahms. It is not clear to me how their music is tied together, because there are a lot of leaps, or a lack of smooth movement that makes you feel like all is connected. Maybe this is a personality trait?

    Well done, Mercutio. This is an excellent example of how a correlation does not imply causation.

    Default still mega incomplete

    Rhythm, energy, all kinds of depth, and no bullshit!

    First two Megadeth albums were fucking great. First album by The Crown too -- live-as-fuck drums, vocals on fire, guitar leads out the ass. Anything Overkill did from Horrorscope on forward. Kreator on Hordes of Chaos! And when Exodus was on, they were unreal. Gary Holt's musical vocab changed my world!

    Aphex Twin's Syro gets played through at least once a week, ever since I first heard it. Teebs and Biosphere for the vibes and layers! Amon Tobin's Foley Room gets play here too.

    Ol' Dirty Bastard! Return to the 36 Chambers. Whole thing is ALIVE, and if/when your situation goes shit ass crazy, it'll be the most right thing to have on hand. Ja Rule covered a shit ton of styles I like on The Last Temptation.

    Hole rules, and The Distillers's second album roared. NOFX! SLATFATS is the tour de force. Major key w/o cheese/sap/shit! Catchy w/o tons of repetition or dull spots!

    My hard drive nuked a ton of my music, and most of the really good shit survived on my phone

    Country has excellent guitar tones, and the layers are crisp and great, the lyrics can kill the experience. Don't be sad on purpose, not in that dull shitty being/grey way that has no path to grandeur, wtf! Any rap that is actually instructions on how to do a dance which serves to promote the initial instructions = dumb imo. And fuck all of that 90s coffeehouse weinerless-bro acoustic guitar sad sack shit to hell and beyond! Big exceptions made for Goo Goo Dolls and Spin Doctors (the drummer rules). I still have that non-rock dumped on me when I enter some stores; when the intercoms start raining diarrhea, it's time for me to get out!

    New wave can rule, and Duran Duran has one of the greatest bassists ever! 2000s hipster relaunch of the genre sucked (like The Killers and stuff) because no one was good on instruments imo. Sonic Youth has amazing moments, fav to play straight thru is Sonic Nurse. Crazy Town was fucking underrated -- what world kills Crazy Town and ups Nickelback? Heavy mass music in late 90s and early 2000s was great until the Nickelback showed up; cool bands vanished, semi-cool bands got rid of their cool shit and filled the empty spots with Nickelback, and the decade sucked more.

    Way too much to cover, and I like more stuff than I don't

    It's higher masculinity. Partially disconnected from the body.

    But really, some classical music is actually very masculine.

    On the other hand, pop/rock music with it's African roots often sound more matriarchal.

    I simply dislike the style. It seems too theatrical, artificial and fake. I also dislike high pitched voice in men and most of the 80's singers sing pretty high. The only 80's band I'm ok with are Guns'n'roses, but that's about it.

    An interesting observation i made, based on my last post, is that the Ni-dom types showed distinct preferences for music with an ethereal, wall of sound like quality, like Shoegaze and Dream Pop, where ILI liked the more rock sounding music (Shoegaze) and IEI liked softer, more mellow versions of the same conceptual style of music.


    ILE showed preference for experimental types of music, which is interesting because Ne-dom types are depicted as the most innovative, creative thinking types. IEE, the other Ne-dom, showed preference for Art Rock, a blanket term for more experimental or offbeat types of rock music.
    LIIs, who are Ti-dom types and Ne creative types, showed preference for progressive rock, a complex and brooding sort of music, which may cater to complex understanding of systematics, such as music theory. EIEs showed the same preference for progressive rock, but even stronger. EIEs may like the expressiveness and gradiosity of the instrumentation and the lyrics. SEI and SLI showed preferences for music which is a bit more laid back, albeit SLI also liked abrasive music such as experimental hip hop. SEI seemed to prefer more easygoing styles to SLI. LSE and EII seemed to compliment each other, with preferences for folk and acoustic rock, and i imagine that the Fi-Ne axis likes music with a clear, and complex narrative style, or another sentiment shown through lyrical means.

    I don't like emotional dissonance i.e. if the contrast between my mood and the music is too wide then I feel unbalanced, so I think there's a lot of mood management involved. I love music that makes me feel calm, like a continuously smooth transition from sound to sound, and I like experimental sounds, especially if the sounds don't immediately make sense together. hip hop and its stylistic variants probably comprise the sum of my playlists. I gravitate toward alternative and experimental hip hop, which comprises dozens and dozens of mini-genres, and I have a strong affinity for instrumentals (especially of the foreign variety) and I enjoy a mix between electronic and ambient with an experimental edge (downtempo, trip hop, nu jazz, chillstep, jazz rap)

    here's an example of music that makes me feel calm [x] followed by some nujabes which is high up there for me [x] [x] [x] and I love tracy chapman [x]

    hip hop is difficult for me to flesh out in terms of illustrating my tastes because it's so expansive, but I think I might have a slight preference for semi-modern midwest hip hop (atmosphere is my #1) and I love the dirty south. I don't know why but the energy is just so contagious I can't resist, whereas midwest hip hop is slicker, more smooth in comparison. what's interesting about the "east coast vs west coast" debacle, is that in terms of geography alone, I like the west coast, but I'm a way bigger fan of east coast hip hop. I like conscious rap in the realm of artists such as mos def, common, talib kweli, lauryn hill, aesop rock, which includes def jam poetry (I don't know if this falls under music preferences?) but there's a lot of overlap between those artists and the aforementioned subgenres, so it's hard to place them anywhere perfectly. partially because I don't care, but mostly because it's too hard.

    I love the 40s-early 60s (?) so genres such as swing, variations of jazz (i.e. bebop and hard bop), rhythm and blues, even some 50s rock, but I don't like rock and roll from the late 60s-70s, aside from blues rock and psychedelic rock (namely jimi hendrix) but this is all fairly light listening for me. I wouldn't consider myself too knowledgeable outside of the knowledge that if you were to play music from the aforementioned genres, I'd probably welcome it.

    with foreign music, it's always been hard for me to remember specific artists or groups from this category. I just know I have a natural affinity for spanish, irish, and traditional japanese music, I like some indian and I don't know which specific area, but different variations of arabic music are pretty. essentially if it's foreign, there's a high chance I'll like it, especially if it's more traditional and folk-y, but europe is slightly less enticing than the rest of the world.

    I don't usually listen to albums all the way through (with a few notable exceptions) but I do think the music I listen to follows a certain flow while I'm listening. most of the music I like doesn't inspire a strong urge to listen to anything and everything created by said artist or group. I just listen to music as I find it and if that results in me listening to more of that specific artist or group, then that's cool, but if not then I don't get too hung up on "covering all my bases" so to speak. my music preferences have changed a lot over the years, but it's more like branching out from my original genres of choice into slightly different territory, like it expands slowly, sometimes it seemingly breaks away from the original genres, but there is probably still an underlying pattern to my likes/dislikes since there are quite a few genres I haven't even bothered checking out, or I have and it was just a traumatizing experience.


    tl;dr after quickly skimming my post, it seems that I almost exclusively enjoy music made by black people, but I can enjoy music made by white people as long as they're not american, which I don't think is entirely accurate because I like female folk singers who tend to be white americans, so it might be more accurate to say that I don't like music made by white american men, especially when they come in the form of rock bands from the 60s/70s era

    Fi/Ne : techno, ambient, classical, not that atracted to lyrics aside if poetic. Not that attracted to rock (sometime more due to too much stereotipy than actual music)

    Typically a things that I think is not that type related. Ive an INFP friend who listen only punchy music and lyrical stuff (french rap), and another one who listen to many thing but like disco and related stuff that the first one would never touch ^^, and globally, yes, type unrelated. Perhaps in this forum, but this forum is sectorizatism post nazism ^

    I would think that Delta types, especially the intuitives, would enjoy music with a narrative evolution and a general focus on the combination of narrative and sound - Bob Dylan style.

    Can you elaborate on how you see this as a Delta preference? I think this thread has pretty much proven that genre is independent of type, but content-wise there might be some trends.

    I'm 200% leaning Ni based on this, I am super perfectionist about sound and its feeling and meaning. So far the only category that seems to be focused on sound texture rather than lyrics or having a definite theme is Ni, and maybe Si too... I guess my music taste is IP.

    @Stellafera
    People with Fi-Ne ego block, in my experience, seem to prefer music with subjects that touch on a sort of phenomenological narrative experience, where relations between not only people, but things and concepts are thematicized and expounded upon. My EII friend, for example, is incredibly moved by the subjects of a particular song, not the musical content per se. Especially if it has a moral or political touch. It is especially the preservation of a kind of relational setting, that seems to click with the Fi-Ne axis.

    Of course, you're right. There does not seem to be any real correlation, but the observation and perception of these assumed trends are interesting nonetheless.

    I'm a big music person. Socionics got that right about SLEs at least. I don't care about music for its "artistic value" or "cultural significance" or who I am because I like the artist or other vague detached stuff, which no offense I feel like many people do but it could just be different tastes. I just like the melody, beat and sometimes lyric meanings. Lyrics should be direct and easy to understand or infer or not; those that have hard to relate to, intricate backstories are uninteresting to me. I feel a deep spiritual connection with the face value. I listen to a lot of different genres. Among my favourites are: trance/EDM/dubstep, house, rock, post-rock, lounge/bossa nova, jazz, rap/hip-hop/RnB, "world music", reggaeton/Latin American pop, eurodance, electropop, speed metal, etc, all in various languages. I like it loud.

    for whatever reason I don't like human screaming like death metal but I like intense electronic/bass effects that otherwise seem "aggressive", and it's very cathartic to me e.g.





    ^ one of my favourite artists KSHMR blends a lot of these aggressive or "cruel" sounding beats with some benevolent ridiculousness in a way that seems really beta to me, I think he might be EIE. Anyway he has a video tutorial series for music and beatmaking and I think he's pretty hot.

    I also think his sense of timing and progression is excellent as in this song:



    I guess my music preferences sort of reflect on my worldview which is: words or not, tell a story, make it have some good rythmic visceral effect, have it be as loud, wild and free as it needs, and get to the point, have it accomplish something.

    I've also noticed that I've always liked a lot of Christian rock even though I'm not particularly theist or religious. I think this is probably because, beyond being catchy, the lyrical content's themes cater to my Ni seeking a lot. Themes of seeking to have faith or for things to come in the future, or strong devotion to the invisible/unknown.

    E.g. lyrics from a song I found recently that I liked (Something to Believe In by Parachute):

    "You walk the streets at night still looking for your reason
    But you don't wanna try
    You swear the world has got you backed into a corner
    But no one holds your hand to walk into a fight
    You swear the light is gonna find you
    But it can't find you when you're waiting all the time
    You say, "keep my head from going down"
    Just for a little, just for a little
    Watch my feet float off the ground
    Just for a little, just for a little
    Love, if (love if)
    You can (you can)
    Hear this (hear this)
    Sound
    Oh, just give me (give me)
    Something, something to believe in

    You spend your days alone still hopin' for the truth, oh
    But all you hear are lies
    But no on else is gonna tell you what to do now
    No one else is gonna help you hold the line
    Sometimes it's hard to keep on living
    But you're the one who's got to know just when it's right
    You say, "keep my head from going down"
    Just for a little, just for a little
    Watch my feet float off the ground
    Just for a little, just for a little
    Love, if (love if)
    You can (you can)
    Hear this (hear this)
    Sound
    Oh, just give me (give me)
    Something, something to believe in
    Love, come take me now
    Love, come take me
    Love, come take me now
    Love, come take me, take me now"


    ^ This could apply to life in general or love, any general life themes like that.
