Hello everyone in this post I will be talking about how some music can make you sad.
Even if music does or doesn't make you feel like crying it can reveal information about your fundamental personality, and that is different for every personality types. Researchers Katherine Cotter and Paul Silvia at the University of North Carolina and Kirill Fayn at the University of Sydney came together to research the emotions that people feel when music makes them feel like crying. Evoking emotion is one of the main points of music, so we probably shouldn’t be too surprised when songs can make you want to fall into a puddle of tears. Crying is a essential human behavior that can go alongside a variety of intense experiences. Crying can be provoked by grief, for instance at a funeral but also by the opposite extreme happiness, for instance at a wedding. But gratitude and love and other emotions can also make you want to cry. What emotion do most people feel when they are in tears by music? The researchers surveyed 892 adults and made them listen to sad music 89.8 percent of the people in the study said that they had experienced feeling like crying by hearing the music. The adults were asked to rank their emotional feelings, across a spectrum of 16 emotions, including euphoria, happiness, awe, anxiousness, sadness, depression, etc. The researchers figured out that people who had been moved to tears by music could be separated into two groups, those who felt sadness and those who felt awe. 63 percent reported feeling sad when music made them cry, and 36.7 percent reported feeling awe. Maybe this is the result of people's different personalities.
