It produces an adrenaline rush, and puts the nervous system in a state of excitement. That's why people get whipped into a frenzy at rock concerts, whereas that's much less likely to happen at a performance of chamber music.

I honestly wonder if men like rap more because of testosterone (like how they're more likely to be vulnerable after sex because of a drop in testosterone).
    I feel the same way about rap.

    Not sure what you mean about testosterone drop in relation to it tho.

    Testosterone makes people more competitive and aggressive. Supposedly after sex men are more vulnerable because the drop in testosterone allows oxytocin bonding (therefore the stereotypes of women being more sentimental or romantic). I have long thought SP women may have higher testosterone making them more competitive in sports, business, arguments, fights, sex, etc.

    In a completely unrelated note I decided today that "style" is the SP way of making reality more tolerable. Is it possible no type really has a better handle on reality? Se types use style to make reality more tolerable, to make the disturbing more bearable, the hyper real is actually a blend of Se/Ni, making the real too real to be real.

    It's nice to listen to someone else scream furiously. That way, I don't have to.


    I FEEL ALRIGHT

    I don't have the answer myself, I've never noticed this in myself before.

    But, maybe it could be the person sort of living through the band or singer, and that said band or singer is releasing all of that emotion and bad energy for them.

    They will feel calmer as a result, of course.

    It's a similar effect to when someone validates you emotionally and empathizes with you. It can not only clarify a feeling (instead of a cloudy bad feeling, it is clearly "anger" now), but also help it subside so you can be more clear-headed again (the emotion releases, and now the trigger can be dealt with calmly).
    I experienced this a lot during my high school years and up until I was about 20. Learning how to process anger is something that I've only been consciously doing for about 3 years. I recognize now that I had tons of repressed anger as a youth, but back then I didn't even realize I was angry at all, let alone what I was angry about... I just didn't recognize what the emotion was when I felt it in my body. I started listening to a lot of metal around freshman year of high school and I remember what I first loved about it (aside from some of the ridiculously impressive musical talent) was that it seemed to reflect all these deeply intense feelings that I had been feeling but wasn't able to express. It was like a weight had been lifted in that moment because it was ok to feel that way.

    I'm 25 now and in a much more positive place emotionally. I still enjoy a lot of instrumental metal stuff but screaming/vocals annoy the crap out of me (I wouldn't have preferred screaming/vocals in metal songs before, but they wouldn't have hindered my enjoyment of the music either, like they do now). I think that I enjoy hearing some of those songs still because it makes me happy to reminisce about my childhood, but recently I've come to the conclusion that I just can't relate to that message anymore. I am very grateful to have had that music as an outlet at the time, and I am very grateful to not relate so much to it anymore as well, although I will always have a fondness in my heart for those days

    Angry music doesn't "calm" me, but I often find it to be more complex, and thus, entertaining to my brain.

    It just depends.
