Science Fair Project:

Do People Prefer Singers of the Same Sex?

4.3 based on 23 ratings

Research Questions:

Do you prefer male or female singers? In this experiment, we'll compare a group of men to a group of women in order to find out which sex they prefer to hear singing.

Materials:

  • 25 male test subjects
  • 25 female test subjects
  • Pen/paper for notes

Experimental Procedure

  1. Survey your test subjects and ask them to list that last five songs and the last five CDs they've listened to. Please be specific that they should omit instrumentals or non-vocal music from their answers--we are only interested in songs with vocals!
  2. Code their answers as either having male or female singers (you may need to make sure!)
  3. Record your findings and compare the male and female groups. Do you see any patterns?

Terms/Concepts: Psychology; Behavioral Science; Singing; Sexes (Gender)
