The goal of the study was to examine the link between the dimension of extraversion and musical preferences. The starting point was the study by Zweigenhaft(2008) along with the study conducted on the 20th Summer school of psychology (Butković, Vukasović, Bratko, 2010). This study has been conducted on 341 respondents. It included a Personality Inventory (IPIP-300) and a Scale of Musical Preferences. A 3-factor structure was found for the international music genres and also for regional genres. The results do not show a correlation between extraversion and its facets between the international genres, but, confirming the hypothesis, a statistically significant correlation was found between the extraversion factor and with the regional and alternative genres. The results do not completely confirm previous findings of the refered studies and the factor structure is partially different, but in respect to a relatively small amount of studies in this field, and also considering a strong presence of music in everyday life, these results represent a contribution to the field, especially in the context of this region where studies like this are even rarer.
