The goal of this study was to expand upon previous studies that investigated the relationship between personality type, physiological response, and music preference. We developed a multidimensional instrument that allowed subjects to select, explore, and manipulate musical styles in real-time with an interactive music system called the Affective Musical Instrument. The objective of this project was to test if personality type is correlated with musical preference, and if that preference could be indicated by high physiological arousal when presented with musical stimuli.
