Was musing about the various musical ranges of instruments and why they are used in music composition. Found something:

Music. Now available to mankind at a level never known, heretofore, in terms of the sheer quantity, the diversity, the types, the complexity, the range. But why? How has it promoted survival to reproduction? It is not a semantical language. It does express, communicate, and elicit emotions. Perhaps that has been critical in some way in our evolution.

I am certain of it.

An interesting clip about the connection between types of music and personality of the listener.

You must have an empathic personality then. A well developed MNN. It;s a good thing.

What a load. It’s a bunch of Barnum Effect BS.

I am not sure what "Barnum Effect BS" conrtibutes to the discussion. I went through three pages of the Barnum Effect on wikii, seeking any reference to emotional responseses of certain types of people to certain types of music. Alas, that was a waste of my time. Can you clarify your knee-jerk comment? .
