--Are sensitive to the sounds and rhythms of words as well as their meanings.
--Feel a strong connection between music and emotions

I think this fits perfectly. While my career isn't in the music field, it fits well especially with the first two descriptions. I am a copy editor, and I spend a lot of time evaluating the rhythm and meaning of written language.

this quiz was pretty darn acuurate. I am always thinking about the meaning of life, or my role in the universe, how Karma has and will continue to affect me, both here and beyond this reality. pretty heavy stuff for a professional hairstylist/ semi-pro musician. but brains only get ya so far. sometimes I need to let go and be at one with the energies that make the universe keep on keepin' on.
