People who experience goosebumps or “shivers” from listening to music tend to experience much stronger emotions in response to music and are more emotional in general. Music tends to be a much more important part of daily life for these people.

Experiencing goosebumps when listening to music is a rare condition that’s the result of a different brain structure. People who get goosebumps from music have more fibers connecting their auditory cortex to the areas responsible for emotional processing.
