dc.description.abstractResearch has recently turned its focus on the relationships between music and personality. This study aims to replicate and further this by investigating the effect of music preference on three psychological variables; personality traits, coping skills and perceived scholastic competence. A convenience sample of 108 students in Ireland participated by responding to four quantitative surveys: Short Test of Musical Preference revised (STOMP-R), Big Five Inventory (BFI), Brief COPE and Harter’s Scholastic Competences subscale. Results yielded no positive significant correlations between music preferences and either personality traits, coping skills or perception of academic ability. However results did show that music training increases preference for complex music. Author keywords: Music preferences, coping, big five inventory, scholastic competenceen
