Music Preferences and Their Relationship to Behaviors, Beliefs, and Attitudes toward Aggression
Devlin, James M.; Seidel, Steven
Online Submission
The content of violence within media has significantly increased over the years and has been approached using a diverse empirical research representation. Within these empirical attempts, the area of music violence has only been approached through the utilization of randomized experiments and thereby presses the need to explore the alternative empirical methodologies. In the present study, musical preference among undergraduate and adolescents was explored in its relation to behaviors, attitudes, and beliefs toward aggression. Participants were required to respond to a music preference questionnaire and the Music Violence Assessment (MVA) and the Normative Beliefs about Aggression Measure (NOBAG). Results suggest that there are strong relationships between music preference and attitudes, behaviors, and acceptance of aggression. Results also indicate that there are significant differences between the endorsement of aggression by adolescents and undergraduates. (Contains 14 tables.)
