The goal of this study was to examine the influence of the stimulating music on the performance on test of intelligence, depending on extraversion level and test some aspects of Eysneck's Extraversion theory. This study included 61 participants which were divided into groups of introverts, ambiverts and extraverts according to the results on Eysneck's Personality Questionaire (EPQ). All of the participants were given the spatial intelligence test Vz-3 (paralel forms) in two different situations, the first time in silence and the second time during listening stimulating music. The data analysis indicated there is no difference between introverts, ambiverts and extraverts in performance on intelligence test in silence neither during listening the stimulating music, but the ambiverts had somewhat better results than extraverts and introverts. Furthermore, results indicated that all the groups of participants were having better results on the intelligence tests during listening the stimulating music than performing test in silence. But the assumption that introverts would have better results on intelligence test in silence than during listening the stimulating music, and extraverts would have better results on test during listening the music than in silence was not confirmed. Therefore the study did not confirmed interaction between arousal value of the testing situation and participants extraversion level.
