What is Frisson?

  • Have you ever felt a sudden, passing sensation of excitement, a shudder of emotion from an epic moment of a song, or a climax of a movie? That is what is called "frisson", a word rooted from the French word meaning "Goosebumps" or "Shiver". It has been linked to rises in dopamine levels which is, in turn, linked to your outlook towards others.

  • Frisson is a physical reaction, it's not just about "that hit me right in the feels." Unless you get a physical tingle/chills/goosebumps/shudder, it does not belong in this subreddit. Please consider /r/aww for happy submissions and /r/baww for sad submissions if they're not frisson-inducing.
