A University of Cambridge psychologist has come up with a couple of major categories that people seemed to fit into, and they're based on the kinds of music they listen to. He gave thousands of people a written quiz and then asked about their taste in music. What he found is only a theory but it's interesting insight into how your music may reflect how you're thinking at a specific time.

ELIZABETH COHEN, CNN SENIOR MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT: Oh, it's beautiful. Like very much.

SUBTITLE: What music says about your personality.

COHEN: So, what in the world would musical taste have to do with personality?

DAVID GREENBERG, MUSIC PSYCHOLOGIST, UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE: People who are high on empathy may be preferring a certain type of music compare to people who are more systematic.

COHEN: So, the theory is, is that the world is divided up between empathizers and systemizers.

SUBTITLE: Are you more of a systemizer?

GREENBERG: If you're looking at a mountain, a systemizer may say, "Wow, isn't it incredible that over hundreds of thousands of years this was moving and forming."

SUBTITLE: Or more of an empathizer?

COHEN: What would an empathizer think about when looking at a mountain?

GREENBERG: They might focus more on the order. They may say, "Man, I am really feeling emotional. This is incredible."

(MUSIC: ARCTIC MONKEY'S "DO I WANNA KNOW?")

SUBTITLE: Systemizers prefer intense music that forms complex sounds, like this song by Arctic Monkeys.

(MUSIC: Jack White "Lazaretto")

SUBTITLE: And this song by Jack White.

(MUSIC: RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE "BOMBTRACK")

SUBTITLE: And this song by Rage Against the Machine.

GREENBERG: Yes.

COHEN: Ugh.

(MUSIC: SAM SMITH "STAY WITH ME")

SUBTITLE: Empathizers prefer mellow music that evokes deep emotions, like this song by Sam Smith.

(MUSIC: JOHN LEGEND "ALL OF ME")

SUBTITLE: And this song by John Legend.

(MUSIC: NORA JONES "COME AWAY WITH ME")

SUBTITLE: And this song by Nora Jones.

COHEN: That's beautiful.

GREENBERG: Yes, you like that?

COHEN: Yes.

GREENBERG: What about it?

COHEN: It's just very soothing.

GREENBERG: Your empathy scores were very high. You would be classified as Type E, an empathizer. You have a greater drive to understand other people's thoughts and feelings and to predict how someone may react in certain social situations.

COHEN: The systemizers, how do they look at the world?

SUBTITLE: Systemizers: Greater drive to understand how the world is interconnected.

GREENBERG: They're focused much more on system and interpreting the world in terms of patterns that they can interpret.

SUBTITLE: Or you could be balanced.

GREENBERG: But then there's also people who are Type B, called balance. You have relatively equal empathy and systemizing scores.
