Updated 18 Jun 2019 82.0k views11 items

Everyone gravitates toward a particular movie genre. Some people enjoy being swept up by romance and others prefer being transported to another world with fantasy films. Regardless of your preference, personality experts have studied how movies reflect your personality. It's not as simple as the notion that comedy lovers are funny and horror movie fans should be banished from sleepovers. There's a great deal of legitimate research being conducted to determine what your favorite movie genre says about you.

While it's not a direct correlation, scientists are realizing that certain personality types are attracted to the same genres. Someday it may be possible to analyze a person's character based on the films they enjoy. Is it a red flag that their favorite movie is Pulp Fiction, or does that mean they're perfect marriage material?
