Spotify Wrapped is every music lover's most anticipated annual wrap-up event on Spotify. Each Spotify Wrapped summarises the year of the listener within a playlist, most played artistes, and details on their listening trends. 

This year, Spotify introduces a new concept: personality types based on the listening habit of the listener.

Before diving into what each letter actually means, let's take a look at all 16 of the listening personality types:

To curate your listening personality type, Spotify uses these four metrics to categorise you

Here's a breakdown on what each letter actually means:

  1. Familiarity (F) versus Exploration (E)
    If you listen to the same artistes, then your listening type probably starts with an F (Familiarity). However, if you like exploring new music, then your listening type starts with an E (Exploration).
  2. Loyalty (L) versus Variety (V)
    Listening to the same tracks on repeat may make you an L (Loyalty), whereas listening to a lot of music before repeating them makes you a V (Variety).
  3. Newness (N) versus Timelessness (T)
    When new music comes out and you're first in line to listen, you're an N (Newness), but if you prefer discovering all music, then you're a T (Timelessness).
  4. Commonality (C) versus Uniqueness (U)
    If you're part of the crowd cheering for a popular artiste, then you're a C (Commonality). On the other hand, if you prefer indie or undiscovered artistes, then you're a U (Uniqueness).

While we're on the topic, here's my listening personality type :P
