Well, wouldn't it be a rather biased method to learn about the world  
by studying yourself? ;-))

I think though that my own experiences so far go well with my theory  
that you are born with a certain "blue-print for reacting to the  
world and acting in the world" and that this blue-print also directs  
what kind of music you tend to like. The subjective individual  
quality of listening to music is very similar to "acting in the  
world", but with the difference that it happens on an inner stage. I  
think about this like the social anthropologist theory of how we  
"think" in relation to "the internalized other" (hope I got the  
terminology right there). Even when you are alone you look upon  
yourself in relation to "the others". That's how we have to  
experience music as well, since it is communicative.
