The purpose of this study was to explore potential correlates between music preferences and personality dimensions. Music is an important part of human's life and listening to music is one of the most frequent daily activities. The starting point was research done by Renthrow and Gosling (2003) in which they have set the grounds for further approach to this issue. In our survey 195 undergraduate psychology students completed two personality inventories, MPQ (Multidimensional Personality Inventory; Tellegen, 1982) and IPIP's Inventory for measuring lexical structure of Big Five (Goldberg, 1999). They were also given music cd's made for this survey which they listened at home and then fulfilled check list by evaluating the degree of preference for each song. As it was expected, a latent structure of music preferences was shown- three- factor solution gave us the clearest results. Also, there were significant correlations between measured personality factors and music genres that shaped single factor. However, our results did not confirm findings from the reference survey. Considering methodological and procedure differences, this discrepancies could have been expected. Still, these results opened the way for new hypotheses and problems within the field which was, considering practical implications and importance of music and musical expression in human's life, so far neglected and insufficiently represented.
