What's your theme song quiz results
I am a 17 year old male from North America. I am not a very gregarious person, to be frank. I have friends, and enjoy the company of them, but I do not feel particularly pushed to make new ones right now. I enjoy jazz and latin music, quiet, the rain, reading philosophy, and being alone in my basement. I am also a fitness enthusiast and I regularly engage in strength training, running, and swimming.
This back story is to give you an idea of what type of person I am. Simply stated, I am laconic and a loner. So when browsing the internet on a rainy Thursday afternoon, I was in my comfort zone, listening to jazz as usual and emailing a close friend.
A little whiIe before that day, I acquired a new interest, which involves facial reading and the way the mind works. As a result, I was taking many psychological tests and reading a lot that day. Most of the quizzes went according to my predictions and I learned a lot. I was tired and in the process of dozing off when THAT quiz came up in a link.
The quiz was titled, “What’s your theme song?” and I raised my eyebrows a little, but thought little of it otherwise. I browsed through the questions, answering them as they corresponded with my personality. There were questions about my character traits, interests, preferences and the like. I predicted that the quiz would spit out some kind of song with the intention of “By myself” – linkin park, or something else with that genre and taste, based on the way I am and the answers I provided to the questions. However, I was greatly surprised by the results.
Apparently, this computer determined that in spite of the answers I provided that I enjoy pop music, which I dislike and that I liked music by female singers. No offense intended to anyone, but I have noticed that most of my favorite music has no vocalists, and when it does the vocalists are male. I have nothing whatsoever against female artists, but I am just saying what I have noticed about my taste.
I have also noticed that I prefer dark, slower music. I don’t like fast, loud or screamo music. Its just what I am, or not. And seeing as I am a loner, I prefer my music not to be derivative, dance or “kid’s music”. I want something relaxing. Regardless, the computer spat out a song I had not heard of, by an artist I am not familiar with. My theme song was, according to the computer, “Soak up the Sun” – Sheryl Crow.
By this time, I was seriously intrigued and wondering why the computer had made such a stupid choice. I had to see what this was about. I went to youtube.com and listened to the song, once. And then again, and again. And another time.
