Could a person’s taste in music offer hints about their personality?

Music is the greatest creation of man, which touches the soul and also helps man to sympathetically manifest unspoken desire and humanity in him. The effect of music in man is what that separated him from other animals. Due to the high effect of music in the life of human being, it is capable of breaking boundaries to unit people from different background and cultural heritage. In fact, music can best be described as wonderful force that is capable of bonding people together and instituting international brotherhood, love as well as peace. The project is aimed to understand if a persons taste in music is able to offer hints about a persons personality. Music is in all aspects of human life and could give us a further insight on human personality. Hence, this will be an interesting study to disclose if an individuals personality can be predicted by a particular type of music that they listen too. For this QUANTITATIVE study, a target sample of 150 participants above 18 years old will be recruited. A complete submission for the Project is two soft bound copies of the Project, an electronic copy (complete with SPSS file if it is a quantitative project) and an Evidence box. If any of these are missing, then it is an incomplete submission. The word limit for the project report is 5,000-9,000. This includes Introduction, Method, Results and Discussion. It does not include the Abstract, Contents, Reference section or the Appendices. Fictitious or fraudulent data is UNFAIR PRACTICE, as is plagiarism and is likely to result in the disqualification of the student concerned. The suggested outline below will provide a useful model to use: Abstract Contents page List of tables List of figures Introduction Method Results Discussion References Appendices N.B. Page numbering starts with the first page of the first chapter, all pages before that (with the exception of the facing page which is not numbered) are identified using small Roman Numerals, e.g. i, ii. Instead of actually going out to give questionnaires doing an online questionnaire is easier and quicker.
