    Who feels chills while listening to music? People “open to experience”
    by Clive Thompson

    Excerpt:
    Do you ever experience chills while listening to music? Recently, scientists have gotten interested in this question, and they’ve found some fascinating stuff. While most people experience chills some of the time, a small minority experience them very frequently — and about 10% say they never feel chills.

    What accounts for the difference? Is it based in the type of music you listen to — like punk or country or hip-hop? Or the type of person you are? Or maybe some complex combination of the two — i.e. maybe the type of people who listen to, say, mainstream pop are also the type of people most likely to feel chills in the presence of art they heavily dig?

    To try and figure it out, Emily C. Nusbaum (a scientific name that totally freaked me out because it’s almost precisely that of my wife) and Paul J. Silvia decided to survey 196 students at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. They asked them how often they felt chills while listening to music; then they profiled their personalities using the “big five” scale (i.e. how they scored on measures of neuroticism, extraversion, openness to experience, agreeableness, and conscientiousness). And finally they asked the students to describe how much they liked or hated various types of music based on the way music is categorized in the STOMP scale — which, for example, slots classic and folk music as “Reflective and Complex”, and rock and metal as “Intense and Rebellious”. (I kind of cracked up reading those STOMP categories. I mean, sure, yeah, technically Rachmaninoff is classical music — but it’s easily more “Intense and Rebellious” than, god save us, Nickelback. Meanwhile, Pachabel’s Canon, having become the go-to processional music for about seven trillion weddings, has been taxidermically drained of any serious reflective value. Anyway …)

    The point is, once they crunched their data, no music genre trumped. There is no particular type of music you can listen to that will reliably impart chills. The truly big predictor? Your personality. Specifically, how open you are to experience — because this affects how frequently and deeply you engage with music. People who are more open to experience are also likely to interact with music in specifically intense ways:
    In particular, rating music as more important, listening to music for more hours per day, and playing an instrument significantly predicted aesthetic chills.

    Interesting thread! I'd say I often seek out music or movies that would give me chills or in general stimulate an emotional response.

    Perhaps more readily. But not necessarily are the only ones. However, I often equated enneagram type 4's to seek out more intense music.

    agreed!

    I'd say it's unpredictable. It could vary depending upon your own mood... something may just strike you... a voice, a lyric, a music note... I'd also have to say your full attention has to be on the music... being actively engaged. Headphones or a good set of speakers are a must!

    Generally I don't have much of a visceral response to music. There are some types of music that give me sort of a "swept away / flying" mindset, like fast-paced rock or a particularly resonant and loud classical piece, but not "chills". Well, except for that darned Olympic theme during the opening ceremonies, when the athletes start coming into the stadium *shame*. That gets me every time.

    I listen to many multiple hours of music a day, as well as play a few instruments, and I definitely do get major chills.
    Music affects me emotionally far more strongly than any other artistic medium.

    I'm not one of those people who gets chills all the time when I listen to music. But I do have them, sometimes. And I'm the same as Metaphor, in that...

    It is rare for me. But any chills are usually when I hear something fresh and original that I happen to like very much.

    I get chills frequently from music. I'm also a high scorer on openness to experience. Very interesting article.

    This one has accompanied me for years (especially roughly 07:00-08:30)

    And this one also has a major impact, probably linked to some very distant childhood memories

    The historical context definitely adds to it, but I always found this moving.

    I should add, though; I'm not really so sure that I'm any more "open to experience" than average... Maybe even less than average.
