Previous research relating personality and music preferences has often measured such reported preferences according to genre labels. To support previous research, the current paper has expanded investigation of the relation between personality and music preferences to include direct measurement of music listening behavior. A study (N = 395) measured participants' personality, reported music preferences, and their listening behavior, which was tracked while using a music database for a minimum period of three months.

Results also indicated issues when using genre labels to measure music preferences, which are discussed.
