The purpose of the experiment was to help the participants better understand
themselves. The participants were be able to evaluate their own Meyer’s
Briggs personality type and what type of movie genres they are interested in.
The objective was to make the test and survey beneficial to the participants by
extending their knowledge on their personality. It is always helpful to know
what kind of personality the individual has. For example, having the
knowledge of that type of information can benefit the individual by helping
them determine their career choice.
It is predicted that your personality does affect what movies you like
Parts of the Experiment
Independent variable – People that participated in the experiment
Control – organisms or things that do not receive the variable
Experimental group-organisms / things that do receive the variable
Factors held constant- The Meyer’s Briggs Test and the movie genre test.
No less than 25 people
Computer or Device
Meyers Briggs Test
Favorite Movie Genre Test
Human participant form
Social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.)
Get human participation forms.
Create a google form asking what type of movies the person is interested in and what personality letters they got on the Meyers Briggs test.
Go online and find the Meyers Briggs Personality test.
Go on Facebook or any kind of social media and make a new post.
On the new post, upload the human participant forms and Copy/paste the links of the Meyers Briggs test and the google form you made.
Write on the post that you need as many people as possible to fill out all 3 surveys/forms and that they need to print the participant form and give it to you. Post the post that has all off that information on to the social media. Wait till you have all of the data you need.
There were no trends observed. The movie genres were spread throughout different personalities and there was no correlation with the movies and personalities. The data table shows every personality has a different favorite movie genre, thus making no correlation at all. For example, the action movies are favorites amongst ⅝ of the personality types. This shows that the type of personality does not affect what kind of movies a person likes. It just depends on what the individual enjoys. In conclusion, since there is no type of correlation in the data, it depends on the individual and their likings. A person could have the a tough personality but still enjoy romance movies. Having a tough personality does not mean the movie genre has to match their personality.
The hypothesis was incorrect. The objective of this experiment was to analyze whether or not there is a correlation between personality types and movie discretion. Through this project, there was no trend observed, meaning there is no connection with personality types and movie likings.
Sources of Error and Inaccuracies
The Sources of Error and Inaccuracies can result from computer malfunctions or
a lack of options when selecting a favorite genre. When submitting data from the
survey, the computer might glitch, causing the information to possibly not send.
With the possibility of having the data not submit, the subject might re-submit and choose a different result. Another possibility is that the subject thinks it didn’t
submit when it actually did. This causes extra data. Also, some people may have
to go with different choices than what they actually like to watch because their
favorite genre was not an option. Lastly, others may choose not to participate
honestly and they select random options on the survey.
Part of this experiment consists of learning your personality type. Learning your personality type helps with your future and understand yourself. If you’re an Extrovert, exploring jobs that consist more of speaking may suit you better. Learning your personality type will also show where your weak spots are. Doing this will allow you to practice and become better well-rounded. Knowing the personality type an individual is can help determine one’s major or minor. This is very helpful and important for the future.
The experiment could have been better prepared by making a more organized procedure. A procedure that can assure that every person returns the human consent form is highly recommended. One must maintain efficient time management when working with human participants. One can expand on the experiment by comparing different genders, their personality types, and movie discretion.
