The Best Spotify Playlist For Your Myers Briggs Personality Type To Celebrate World Music Day

Exactly what you need to play on repeat.

World Music Day 2018 falls on Thursday, June 2018 (also the official first day of Summer — so many things to celebrate!).

The Make Music festival began in France as the Fête de la Musique in the 1980s as a way to celebrate this enormous impact music has on us and has since transformed into a worldwide celebration of music in all of its forms.

Chances are you listen to music every single day, whether it’s just a song in your head, background music while you work, or a full on jam sesh with your friends. We use fast-paced songs to help enhance our moods, and slow songs to help up wallow. We feel true connections with our favorite artists and the sounds they share.

There are so many different kinds of music and a lot of things that influence the music we’re exposed to and in turn, prefer. For example, you might naturally gravitate toward what your parents listened to during your childhood or the popular music of your culture. But, while it may seem that what you like listening to lands on the nurture end of the nature vs. nurture debate, did you know your personality type plays a role in your love for Drake or sincere hatred of country music?

According to a 2018 study, your personality traits influence your taste in music. Researchers from the University of Cambridge, Stanford University, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and the California Institute of Technology studied over 21,000 people using an online survey to discover how personality traits affect music tastes. The study focused on how the Big Five personality traits correlated with different genres of music.

Researchers found that people who liked mellow acoustic music were more likely to be extroverted. Meanwhile, people who ranked high on openness preferred “sophisticated music” and classical music was more geared toward those with “imaginative and insightful” personalities.

Your Myers Briggs personality type is probably the best predictor of your favorite music. In 2016, 16 Personalities conducted a study of over 4000 to reveal everything about how your personality type listens to music.

What better way to celebrate World Music Day than to blast the music that gets you in every way? Check out the best Spotify playlist for your Myers Briggs personality type.
