I suspect this subject might have already been discussed on here, but I am curious if any of you know more about the experience of frisson, and how it relates to cognitive type. There are several articles on it, most are just summaries and don't actually demonstrate the science behind the studies, and the data collected. It has been suggested that people who experience frisson when listening to music, looking at art, or watching a moving scene, have the trait of openness to experience. So, I am curious how many of you also experience the physical reaction of frisson? How often, and during what type of aesthetic experience/s? Thanks guys and gals! 😊
Aha! So that's what it's called... I definitely experience this while listening to certain music... and kinda wondered if anyone else around me was. Good to know I'm not completely crazy. Openness to experience... hmmm could be Se or Ne, right?
Wow, interesting.. This is the first I'm hearing of the word but to answer your questions: This feeling essentially determines my taste in music. If I'm really into something I'll almost invariably experience this the first time I hear it, and then each time I hear it until I've adjusted and just like the song at that point. I get this sensation a lot when I see physical performances (dancing, perrformance art, etc.), there's something really moving about watching people express emotion through their bodies so directly. It happens with beautiful visual stimuli (natural or rendered) also, but not nearly as often as with sound. I experience this in response to internally generated imagery sometimes too.
