AbstractThe research paper concerned itself if understandingwhether the classical and hip-hop has differentimpact on the individuals. The concept is directlyrelated with the extroversion and introversion. It isexpected that the hip-hop music to some extent ispreferred by the individuals who are more orientedtowards extroversion. In contrary, the individualswho are introvert prefer classic. However, this resultcannot be asserted to be completely true as the studyof the topic was in the controlled environment andthere can be many factors which might not have beenconsidered. Apart from that, the researchers haveidentified that there are few who introverts whopreferred hip-hop and extroverts preferred classic. Inthe subsequent study, it was found that theindividuals who have preferred classical music aremore stable thinker and concentrate quickly on theirtasks in comparison to the individual who involved inhi-hop music.Research Topic/QuestionIs the negative effect of classical and hip hop musicon concentration mediated by extrovert-introvert?MethodologyThe paper considered primaryas well as secondary research.The primary research wasconcerned with conducting asurvey by distributingquestionnaire to the identifiedrespondents. The total numberof respondents identified forthe study was 100. Thesecondary research was relatedto understanding what hasbeen stated in the studiesconducted by variousresearchers. The literaturesources have been studied andbased on that, reasonablehypotheses have beendeveloped which were provenlater in through primaryresearch. The use ofconvenience sampling waspreferred due to cost and timeeffectiveness. The SPSS wasapplied on the results obtainedand hypotheses were analyzedbased on them.Literature ReviewResearchers (Cockerton, Moore & Norman, 1997;Halman, Price, and Katsarou, 2002) have found thatmany students prefer listen to music while they arestudying. The reason that has been quoted is thatthe music helps them in study. Moreover, theystudies have also identified that loud music distractsthe individuals’ concentration level (Halman, Price& Katsarou, 2002). The extroversion andintroversion refers to the different behavior typesamong the individuals and it is hypothesized thatmusic preference depends on the behavior type.Moreover, another consideration is that extrovertsprefer loud music such as hip-hop and classical is -preferred by introverts. These assumptions havelimited ground on theoretical arena. Therefore,consideration of primary research is preferable totake the study further.ReferencesCockerton, T., Moore, S., & Norman, D. (1997).
