This paper introduces a method for classifying humans by analyzing prefrontal cortex electroencephalogram (EEG) activity to extract and confirm distinct response features on listening to music that the user feels matches his/her mood, does not match his/her mood, or otherwise. The proposed method constitutes analyzing EEG signals obtained from monitoring human response features and classifying the human subjects according to the different frequency bands of the power spectrum of the EEG signal. The performance of the proposed method is evaluated using real EEG data. We confirm that we can classify humans into at least three groups.
