Abstract

The current research aims at studying the music preference with the quantitative method of psychology and economic science. A set of hypotheses that stipulate the relation between music preference and personality orientation will be tested. We also examine the relation between music preference and economic judgement. The sample that we will study is university students (n = 41) whose music taste, personality and economic inclination would be revealed by questionnaire. Correlations corroborate the hypotheses that personality and economic judgement could be reflected in one’s attitude toward music. The research may indicate the intertwined relationship of different dimensions of human beings, namely, aesthetics, personality and as a member of economy.
