Dramatic personalities turn to - Opera. Che l'orrore!

According to Psychology Today (via our beloved La Cieca at Parterre.com):
Compared with other music fans, opera aficionados are three times more likely to endorse suicide as a solution to family dishonor, says Steven Stack, a psychologist at Wayne State University in Michigan. Don't blame Madame Butterfly. Stack says dramatic personalities are drawn to opera, not influenced by it.
