Factorial Structure and Differential Features of Aesthetic Preferences

Bilyana Yordanova, Lyudmil Krastev

Abstract


Factor analysis established the structure of aesthetic preferences and identified three factors explaining 48.09% of the total variance (KMO = 0,761, Bartlett's Test p < 0,001). At the first factor, aesthetic assessment, differences according gender (t(218) = 2,753, p = 0,006), education (t(218) = 4,309, p < 0,001), and occupation (F(2,218) = 3,916, p = 0,021) were observed. At the second factor, aesthetic activity, differences were found according age (F(2,212) = 4,427, p = 0,013) and education (t(217) = 2,626, p = 0,009). At the third factor, aesthetic potential, individual differences were established in terms of gender (t(218) = 3,884, p < 0,001) and occupation (F(2,214) = 3,628, p = 0,028).
