Openness to experience/emotion/five-factor model/personality psychology/psychological theories: individuals who score highly on openness to experience seem to be more emotionally sensitive to art and beauty, and to experience a wider range of feelings and emotions than people low on this trait (McCrae 2007(1); Terracciano, McCrae, Hagemann and Costa 2003)(2). Cf. >extraversion, >agreeableness, >conscientiousness, >introversion, >Five-Factor Model.
