This research seeks to determine the personality and relationship between current moods of individuals at Louisiana Tech University by conducting a sound test of a can opening with a pre and post mood assessment, Brief Mood Introspection Scale (BMIS). The real question is “Can a sound test change mood?” Using one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), the study is intended to examine the relationship between the pre and post (BMIS). The results indicate that there is a statistically significant relationship between both BMIS assessments. To determine if the data is significant, we must show the analysis of both BMIS and its outcome. Concluding this study, the personality assessment, Big Five Factor Inventory extra short form (BFI-2-XS), results will be shown in context while the pre and post BMIS assessment will be compared.
