Another personality analysis
Personality analysis is fun. That, and ancient esoteric slogan, gnothi seauthon (know yourself) led me to try a couple of these methods. I know we had here already MBTI, but from these four letters (INFP/INTP for example) it's diffcult to tell who's what in detail, unless you do some reading. Which is not that fun, unless it's you.
Yes, personality analysis is maybe for narcissists, but as the Tibetyan (DK) writes, a disciple should make effort to assess precisely his assets and liabilities, or pros and cons, to decide how to invest himself in service with greatest effectivity. What a pragmatic guy. So that's about it, we're not that selfish in all this navel and mirror gazing, it's after all for a good purpose. So, here is my diagram:
Of course, that's not complete, it's just forum picture for embedding. There's supposed to be a big Cautious element on the other side of Free spirited. The Open side means practically the person's brains. The violet one means responsibility, plus or minus. The green one means emotions or lack of thereof.
Signal Patterns is also offers a music preference assesment web application. I have to say, it sucks... Or it works only for mainstream listeners. It's hard to tell where my favorite psychedelic ambient music genre belongs, it evolved from fast, electronic psychedelic dance music, when the DJs accumulated too much THC from potent indica in their bodily tissues and mellowed out into rather downtempo genres. (which is even more trippy, IMO)
But I have to say, the web application got the basics right. It's instrumental, with voice just as another instrument of many. It's relaxing... Well, if you call mindblowing relaxing. It's sad. Well, not exactly sad, but there's this somewhat melancholic peculiar key of music, which is very typical for this genre and which I adore. And which is damn hard to find in most of other genres. So it got the basics right, but it won't recommend me the right music. Nevermind.
Anyway, I had read into the book "This is your brain on music - The science of human obsession" by Daniel J. Levitin. Perhaps there I will discover what is this special psychedelic key or pitch that works for me like something between sacramental wine and soma. Or what the hell is my brain doing when I'm all tripping on something like this:
My best guess is, that this would fit into the reflective and complex cathegory, even though it already contains jazz, piano and baroque classics.
I had just recently read some scientific studies on music and personality correlation. Surprisingly, classic and heavy metal fans are very similar. Country, rock, hip-hop, indie and dance music also have their stereotypes. Too bad that nobody evaluated psychedelic music - what must be the shady and delirious mind of those, who lurk around with poised synthesizer and shamelessly rob the global cultures off their wealth and mix it into their totally historically inaccurate hypnotic collages in best hippie legacy?
