PsyBlog has just started a series of articles investigating the psychology of relationships by examining recent research looking at how relationships may do our health as much good as a balanced diet and regular exercise.
Another article discusses why music is so commonly talked about when we’re getting to know someone. Partly, it seems, because we tend to see music choice as indicating something about personality.
Research has suggested that this might have some basis to it, as music choice seems to reliably indicate aspects of personality and reveals information not necessarily available through other sources.
Future articles in the series will explore other interesting aspects of relationships studied by psychologists.
