Sound, Feelings, And You: An Aural Study of Emotions

For most of us, the sound of a baby crying will either elicit annoyance or glee. For others, the sound of pounding bass brings a feeling of confidence, while others find joy in thunderstorms. You might feel relaxed and content with the sound of rain, because it reminds you of some random summer on that random lake with that random family friend you had a crush on. Ah, memories.
The emotions that certain sounds stir up are complex and unique to the individual, but after completing Amplifon's mesmerizing quiz, you'll find that we're more alike than you might think.
