With less in-person socializing, less time in cafes and less casual chats, there has been less opportunity to have your music taste scrutinized, and ultimately ridiculed. In todays episode of ‘robots are are coming for yor jobs’ is the quasi-friend, barista or ‘hip’ co-worker. From Mashable:

The process is simple: Log into your Spotify, answer a few questions, and patiently await your results as the bot makes fun of your taste in music along the way. At the end, it gives you a full report based on things like which tracks you listen to too much, the “artists you stan to an uncomfortable extent,” and a few other notes that might make you cry.

But seeing as how this bot has been “trained on corpus of over two million indicators of objectively good music, including Pitchfork reviews, record store recommendations, and subreddits you’ve never heard of,” it clearly knows best. I’m sorry, I don’t make the rules.
