Relating Five Factor Personality Traits to Video Game Preference
HCIL-2013-08

This study examined the relationships between a person's scores on the Five Factor Personality Inventory with (a) how much they liked and (b) how difficult they found it to play four different genres of video games (fighting, racing, dancing, first-person shooter). It was hypothesized that there would be a correlation between personality factors and which genres of games people preferred to play. Participants played one of two games from each genre and filled out the Five Factor Personality Inventory and ratings of their liking and perceived ease for each game. Conscientiousness was negatively correlated with perceived ease of first-person shooter games. Extraversion was positively correlated with both liking and perceived ease of dancing games. Agreeableness was positively correlated with liking of dancing games.
