Exploring the correlation between our personality characteristics and preferences for different music genres has been, in the past few decades, a topic of interest among researchers. The aim of this study was to explore the link between conscientiousness and its facets with international and regional music genres, on a Croatian sample. In order to do that, we used IPIP-300 as a measure of personality traits. The Questionnaire of music preferences, which was created for the 20th Psychological Summer School, was used to measure the preference for 18 international and 18 regional music genres. The sample included 449 participants aged 20-27 years, with different education. There were 224 female and 225 male participants. The conducted factor analysis revealed identified 3 factors of preferences for international music genres (reflective, intense and rythmic) and 3 factors for regional music genres. (conventional, alternative and reflective). Conscientiousness correlated positively with the international rythmic factor. The intense and reflective factors did not correlate with conscientiousness. There was a positive correlation between the conventional and alternative regional factors and conscientiousness. By analyzing correlations specific music genres and facets, we obtained more information about the link between music preferences and conscientiousness.
