Synonyms of "Shiver" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between shiver and shudder ?

Shiver is much more about cold.

Shudder is what you do when you think of something really bad or scary. For example, "I shudder to think about what he will do when he hears what happened." It's very similar to "send chills down one's spine." So, it is more figurative than shiver.
