Stereotype.fm tries to determine what personality traits, political stances, and life experiences fans of certain musicians are most likely to share by using data collected from over 100,000 surveys conducted on its sister site, Tastebuds.fm.
When a user types in the name of a musical artist, they're shown which characteristics are most common among that artist's listeners. These are presented as responses to questions like, "Do bad things happen to you on Friday the 13th?" and "Do you prefer to date people of the same ethnicity as you?" The answers, which are often surprising and/or hilarious, offer a look at how our musical tastes intersect with the rest of our lives.
