AbstractThe research paper concerned itself if understanding whether the classical and hip-hop has different impact on the individuals. The concept is directly related with the extroversion and introversion. It is expected that the hip-hop music to some extent is preferred by the individuals who are more oriented towards extroversion. In contrary, the individuals who are introvert prefer classic. However, this result cannot be asserted to be completely true as the study of the topic was in the controlled environment and there can be many factors which might not have been considered. Apart from that, the researchers have identified that there are few who introverts who preferred hip-hop and extroverts preferred classic. In the subsequent study, it was found that the individuals who have preferred classical music are more stable thinker and concentrate quickly on their tasks in comparison to the individual who involved inhi-hop music.Research Topic/Question Is the negative effect of classical and hip hop musicon concentration mediated by extrovert-introvert?MethodologyThe paper considered primary as well as secondary research. The primary research was concerned with conducting a survey by distributing questionnaire to the identified respondents. The total number of respondents identified for the study was 100. The secondary research was relatedto understanding what has been stated in the studies conducted by various researchers. The literature sources have been studied and based on that, reasonable hypotheses have been developed which were proven later in through primary research. The use of convenience sampling was preferred due to cost and time effectiveness. The SPSS was applied on the results obtained and hypotheses were analyzed based on them.Literature ReviewResearchers (Cockerton, Moore & Norman, 1997; Halman, Price, and Katsarou, 2002) have found thatmany students prefer listen to music while they are studying. The reason that has been quoted is that the music helps them in study. Moreover, they studies have also identified that loud music distractsthe individuals’ concentration level (Halman, Price & Katsarou, 2002). The extroversion and introversion refers to the different behavior types among the individuals and it is hypothesized that music preference depends on the behavior type. Moreover, another consideration is that extroverts prefer loud music such as hip-hop and classical is -preferred by introverts. These assumptions have limited ground on theoretical arena. Therefore, consideration of primary research is preferable to take the study further.ReferencesCockerton, T., Moore, S., & Norman, D. (1997). Cognitive test performance and background music.
