Aim of this study was to explore relationships between personality traits, absorption in music and uses of music. Data was collected on student sample (N=200) from various colleges and faculties. Questionnaires used in this research were BFI-10 as self- and other-report measure, Uses of Music, and Absorption in Music. Self- and other-reports of personality were aggregated. Results showed that females were higher on neuroticism, emotional and background use, while males were higher on cognitive use of music. Gender differences in patterns of correlations were found between personality traits, uses of music, and absorption in music. Correlations of cognitive use and openness, and absorption and agreeableness were found on male subsample. Correlations of background use and agreeableness was found on female subsample. On the whole sample significant correlations of emotional use and neuroticism, cognitive use and openness, and background use and agreeableness were found. Correlations of absorption and all three uses of music were found. Correlations of absorption and agreeableness, and absorption and openness were also found. Results of hierarchical regression analysis showed that gender and absorption were significant predictors for emotional use; gender, engagement in music and absorption were significant predictors for cognitive use; and absorption was significant predictor of background use. Absorption in music accounted for largest amount of variance in all three uses of music.
