(Newser) – Our favorite music speaks volumes about who we are, according to a new psychological study. It turns out that Indie fans are miserable, and metal heads act a lot like classical music lovers. The Independent breaks down personalities by genre:  

  • Indie: Low self-esteem and lazy, not to mention selfish and unkind.
  • Rock: Hard-working and creative, but also unfriendly and hardly generous.

  • Blues: Think well of themselves, comfortable, creative, and outgoing.
  • Classical and Heavy Metal: Shy but creative, with a healthy self-esteem.
  • Reggae: Lazy but giving, nice, extroverted, and creative.
