The OP sounds a little pretentious, but maybe I'm reading his post differently. While I do agree that you can learn a lot about a person from their taste in music, it is pretty shallow to use that one characteristic to judge a person as a whole. Most of my friends don't share my taste in music or what I consider "good", but good taste in music is very subjective. I can find other things in common with people, such as LSU, sports, movies, hobbies, etc, and enjoy the company of people with these characteristics just as much or more than those that have the same taste in music.
Like someone else said, many people that like the same music as me can often be pretentious dicks, so why would I want to hang around them?
