This is some good information for the next time you’re out dancing, and suddenly a circle forms around you and you realize: This is my time to show who I am through the timeless art of dance.
A new study out of the University of Jyvaskyia in Finland has figured out what different dance styles say about your personality. So people are right, I have an awful personality.

If you move around a lot, with exaggerated, energetic movements of your arms and head, it shows that you’re an extrovert.
 
If you tend to kind of “shuffle” . . . jerking your hands and feet with sharp movements . . . it means you’re neurotic.
 
If you move around the dance floor a little more smoothly, swinging your hands and moving side-to-side, it shows you’re agreeable.
 
If you bob up-and-down more rhythmically in a less exaggerated way, it shows you’re open-minded.
 
If you move all over the dance floor and move your hands all over the place, it shows you’re the responsible, Conscientious type.
