I do not believe that a person’s personality can be determined by the random selection of songs from their music collection. At any point in time different music has spoken to me. I enjoy a wide breadth of music – classical, pop, oldies, country, rap, etc. The first five songs that would be played could be from any number of artists that I may or may not currently care for. The songs would have been selected over many years with just as many different reasons for feeling drawn to that particular genre of music.
Am I rebellious because Eyedea and Abilities is played? Am I bubbly and happy because Britney Spears makes an appearance? Am I dark and depressive because of Lana Del Rey?
Perhaps I am all of those things, but not one song or a random sample of the music I enjoy can possibly ascertain even a partial understanding of my personality. The selection would only provide a snapshot in time. I think a better question would be is why is that song on your playlist? What was going on when you found that song? What draws you to that song or group?
I am a complex creature made up of many different, often conflicting thoughts, hopes, dreams, beliefs, loves, and hates. Trying to personify all that I am in five random songs removes so much of who I am.
