We know why we get goosebumps – scientifically speaking. But there are a lot of different external causes for our internal response. Everyone has experienced goosebumps from being cold, for instance. And most of us have experienced another oddly-enjoyable sensation associated with the response:

Frisson. Or, those chills you get when you’re listening to a music. Is it because the music is so beautiful? Is it because you recognize it from childhood? AsapSCIENCE looks at another theory that has to do with fear. Fear, you say? Yes.
