The Science Behind Dance Moves

Published by at 1:00 pm under Oddly Enough

Oh science, what can’t you prove? We should probably be studying cancer or something, but some people are studying dance moves and what they mean for your personality. See if any of the findings relate to you and your stylings.

  • Extroverts move around the most, with big head and arm movements
  • Neurotic people do the “shuffle,” jerking their hands and feet
  • Agreeable people are “smoother” dancers who move side to side
  • Open-minded people bob up and down
  • Conscientious people move about the dance floor the most
  • A lot of this depended on the type of music played. For example, rock music naturally inspired headbanging and Latin music made everyone more confident. Extroverts and neurotics loved rock while open-minded dancers loved techno. Still, the study found a strong correlation between personality types and dancing styles.

    I mean, that makes sense to me, though what do “normal people” do. Or is that the “agreeable” people category? I’m neurotic to a point, but I don’t do the shuffle. A missing category is “whore” best known for touching the ground with their hands frequently while dancing.
