Inverse: "Brain Study Pinpoints Why Music Can Literally Give You The Chills"

I suspect this reaction to some music, is not the same for everyone, but is tied to possessing certain traits.
Most likely a set of specific emotional traits, perhaps ?

I'm sure many personality types experience zero responses from of any kind of music.
( how sad for them )

Hopefully research into this fascinating direction will continue


ACTIONS THAT FEEL REWARDING typically feel that way because, if we continue them, we are more likely to survive as a species. That's why elements of music puzzle scientists. Music can't make you feel full if you're hungry or help you pass your genes on to the next generation. But music, like all of these things, can still make you feel inexplicably good.

There's something about it that tickles the brain anyway. When that happens, music can ignite literal chills.
