Music and relationships have been closely related for a many years. People could become friends because they are fans of similar music, similar lyrics, or even similar beats. As the friendship develops, it could lead to something greater, love. In this article, we are going to discuss how the soul meets the body when it comes to music. We are going to look at how music and relationships are connected.
Why is music important? Many people think that just because they have similar tastes when it comes to music, they have similar personalities, these similar personalities in turn blooming into love. In reality, that is not the case at all because it has nothing to do with similar personalities, but rather similar values and ideals. This is according to 3 studies by psychologists. When the people participating in the study viewed the profiles of other people with similar tastes in music, it led to the belief that they had similar values, leading to social attraction. A person’s music preference reflects their core values, and this brings about a bond between people since they have the feeling that their values and ideals are similar. In short, music preference = value similarity = social attraction. You can get to know the personality traits of your partner by sharing your music collection.
