The STOMP [above] is a 14-item scale assessing preferences in music genres. It assesses four broad music-preference dimensions. …
The present research examines individual differences in music preferences.
The data indicated that people consider music to be an important aspect of their lives and listening to music as an activity they engaged in frequently.
[A]nalyses of the music preferences of over 3,500 individuals converged to reveal four music-preference dimensions:
- Reflective and Complex,
- Intense and Rebellious,
- Upbeat and Conventional
- Energetic and Rhythmic.
Preference for these music dimensions were related to a wide array of personality dimensions (e.g., Openness), self-views (e.g., political orientation), and cognitive abilities (e.g., verbal ability). [source]

After a week of testing and scaling, adding batches of users and improving our infrastructure, we’re happy to fully open Digg Reader to the public!
To give you a sense of scale, last night we were crawling over 3.3 million feeds. We’re now up to 4.5 million. That’s a lot of data – and it’s growing quickly – but (at the risk of tempting the cruel and unforgiving Fates), the site has remained speedy and stable.
We’ve spent a ton of time this week talking with early users and have identified a few urgent feature needs that we aim to add quickly:
“View Unread Items Only” option for feeds and folders
“Mark As Unread” button
Accurate unread counts for feeds and folders
To try out Digg Reader, please visit digg.com/reader.
Oh, and don’t forget to download the iOS app! (Android coming in the next few weeks)
Thanks for your patience! As always, we’re looking forward to hearing your feedback.
If you’re in the business of using social media for business then, like many, you’ll have faced a specific problem: how do you measure ROI?
