We all like to think that the music we listen to defines us in some way. Sometimes, the lyrics we hear resonate deep within us and give us what we need to get over tough times. Sometimes, we're given a beat that changes our mood. No matter what music does to you or how you define yourself through music, your personality might borrow from a different genre than you'd expect. If you think that music has meaning or that it can change lives, then you should be able to recognize how you can apply a description of your personality to music itself.
Whether you're a hot-headed person who absolutely refuses to give in to "The Man" or you simply love to cross the imaginary lines that have been drawn by those who draw lines, there's something more to you than your taste in music. If you're wondering what music genre your personality best reflects, answer these questions, and we'll tell you if you're ready to change the image of society, like grunge; if you're ready to take on social inequality, like rap; if you're ready to inspire the masses, like rock; or if you have the soul of an anarchist, like punk.
