Welcome to r/science!

You may see more removed comments in this thread than you are used to seeing elsewhere on reddit. On r/science we have strict comment rules designed to keep the discussion on topic and about the posted study and related research. This means that comments that attempt to confirm/deny the research with personal anecdotes, jokes, memes, or other off-topic or low-effort comments are likely to be removed.

Because it can be frustrating to type out a comment only to have it removed or to come to a thread looking for discussion and see lots of removed comments, please take time to review our rules before posting.

If you’re looking for a place to have a more relaxed discussion of science-related breakthroughs and news, check out our sister subreddit r/EverythingScience.

The peer-reviewed research being discussed is available here: P. S. Blagov, K. Von Handorf, A. T. Pugh, and M. G. Walker, Maladaptive personality and psychopathy dimensions as predictors of music and movie preferences in US adults, Psychology of Music (2019).
