Scientists have managed to isolate the songs most favored by psychopaths, according to a new study.
The research has found that your taste in music exposes a LOT about your personality that was previously thought.
Some tunes can, in fact, reveal if you’re a psychopath.
During this new scientific study, researchers discovered that the song that is mainly liked by psychopaths is No Diggity by Blackstreet’s ft. Dre.
A team of British scientists performed a study of over 3 million individuals.
What they concluded is that individuals who scored extremely on psychopath tests were most likely to favor rap music and heavy metal.
The least psychopathic people favored symphonic music and jazz.
However, another group of scientists from NY University chose to dig into this by looking at a particular set of songs.
After studying 200 people and 260 tunes, the research concluded that individuals who scored highly on the crazed test were in favor of 2 tunes:
No Diggity ft. Dr. Dre, Queen Pen and Lose Yourself by Eminem.
Music for people who aren’t psychopaths
On the contrary, people whose score showed them to be the least psychopathic were revealed to favor My Sharona by The Knacks and Titanium by Sia.
The objective of the research study was clear: to find a new method to recognize psychopaths.
After all that the world has been through (events such as the recent Las Vegas shooting), it would be best to discover as many methods to recognize people that might be set off by unimportant things to make them trigger chaos and major damage to humanity.
However, one song is not going to be enough to figure out whether some human is a psychopath; further screening is a must.
Lead scientist Pascal Wallisch said:
“The beauty of this idea is you can use it as a screening test without consent, cooperation or maybe even the knowledge of the people involved.
“The ethics of this are very hairy, but so is having a psychopath as a boss, and so is having a psychopath in any position of power.”
He continued by adding;
“You do not desire to have these individuals in positions where they can cause a great deal of damage.”
According to the sources of this study, if you’re a fan of Sia or The Knacks, you can sing the songs aloud … the CIA will not bother to track you down through your iPhone!
But if you choose those particular songs by Eminem or Dre, keep the volume down…
Just a suggestion…
