What determines the default viewstyle of 'specialist' folders?

Not sure if that's the correct term, but basically you may notice that if you open a previously unexplored folder containing pictures, videos or music, the default view it starts off in will depend on the types of files.

Pictures (and I think videos too) will tend to display the window in thumbnail mode, and music will make the windows display in Details mode.

I'd quite like to know if there is in fact a way to disable this behaviour as I much prefer to just open and view the files in Large Icons or List mode anyway. Is it related to the "Perceived Types" function I recently learnt a bit more about?
