My favorite new female singer...

That is an interesting question - what series of notes move one person and do zilch for someone else.

Not only personality types but cultural backgrounds. I live in Hong Kong and Cantonese speakers/listeners are born into a 9 tine language that requires a person to listen very closely to be able to understand exact pronunciation and intonation. If the word MA is spoken differently it will mean something completely different.

In English - often the meaning is the same no matter how the word is spoken (though you might miss sarcasm or something. But this is quite different.

So you have your first language, your personality, your cultural belief system, religion, political opinions (as to what you take from the meaning of the songs) predisposition to liking or disliking them based on that.

Then I wonder about the very shape of your ears. They're not all the same.

I can't answer your question - just adding more variables to it.

My favorite singer lately is Aurora Aksnes if we talk about pushing my emotion buttons. I hope you get some interesting answers as to understanding and predicting what we will like based on personality and all perhaps all the other factors. I believe that a person's spoken language can be influential here - Some languages are guttural with a lot of sibilant S. So music systems that play that and perhaps shout that will be preferable than to perhaps someone from France or England. This may also influence a composer or musician to interpret a given piece of music differently.
