Default Drum Set Personality Types?

I have a partially theoretical question.

Does personality type correlate to the kinds of drum set and cymbals one purchases?

Even more, it seems like some people buy certain pairings of producers(such as Pearl and Paiste), or innately believe or feel that certain kinds of sounds match up.

I was looking through the Your Gear section and read through some "Show Off your ____!" threads, and found that no matter what I saw I found it hard to imagine myself behind any of those kits. I had no real desire to play them, and I didn't consider any of them, no matter the quality, better than something I would like to buy. Obviously, this is getting into some objective things, but the main idea is that I'm sure others feel this way.

So is it just subconscious brand loyalty, or is it psychological?
