Getting goosebumps to music = creativity, openness to experiences

Science Daily:

Most people feel chills and shivers in response to music that thrills them, but some people feel these chills often and others feel them hardly at all. People who are particularly open to new experiences are most likely to have chills in response to music, according to a study in the current Social Psychological and Personality Science.

I never knew that some people don’t get goosebumps or chills listening to music they like, whether from some sublime melodic passage or brilliant lyric. Talking about it last night reminded me of this article, which I wanted to find and share.
