Polls about ASMR

Scroll down to take some polls related to your thoughts and experiences about ASMR.

After you make your selection and click “Vote”, you will see all the data from prior visitors.

If you have already voted and just want to see the data then click “View Results.”  The data from the polls are specific to the visitors to this website and may not represent the general population or other specific populations.

 

 

 

Note about the poll above when viewing results: because it is “Select All That Apply” the total votes does not equal the total voters because each voter could vote more than once.  To get an estimate of the number of voters, look at the total votes on other polls which were not “Select All That Apply.” because those total votes = total voters.

  1. I have experienced ASMR as long as I can remember. Light touch and the sound of someone’s voice literally makes me extremely tired, but very much at peace – like the best feeling in the world. I have searched for years trying to see if anyone else experiences this – it wasn’t until tonight that I found other people have the same feelings as me.
    Also, live music and dance performances give me goosebumps and sometimes the same feeling but not usually as strong as touch.
    So glad to hear I am not alone.

  2. I’m often triggered by someone doing something for me. I wonder if it goes back to infancy. In the past, I would have been afraid of telling anyone for fear they would think I was crazy.

    • I’m a 51-year old woman and I’m pretty sure I’ve been experiencing this since I was a little kid (like probably when getting my hair brushed or being read to), but my first definite memory that stands out was when I was a senior in high school and looking for a college/business school… a visiting recruiter sat down with me one-on-one and something about the sound of her voice (I think it was soft and melodic with a southern accent) or her seemingly genuine concern for me just gave me this definite “warm fuzzy feeling” the entire time… I felt like it was a sign that this was where I was “supposed” to go, and I knew it was stupid to base my decision on something like that, but I kinda did, lol.

      Since then, I’ve noticed it happens pretty much every time a bank teller counts out money to me, lol… and I don’t feel like it’s so much about the money itself, more about the personal attention/service, which always seemed weird to me too and embarrassing enough not to mention it to most people, lol… but now that I just learned the term ASMR and have been reading up on it, I see how bank tellers’ soft “library” voice, the sound of crisp bills, and the repetitive hand movements probably all contribute to my reaction. That’s a lot of common triggers at once, so I’m actually surprised I don’t see the money thing come up in testimonials of listed online as a trigger more. But I did google and found ASMR money videos, so I’m not the only one! I haven’t watched any yet but will when I have time, as I’m curious if a video is enough for me.

      I had forgotten until I read others’ comments, but taking taking polls on the telephone usually do it to me too, and it makes me unable to properly concentrate on the questions and answers options, lol.

      Getting my hair cut and/or brushed often does it too. Also unexpected acts of kindness. Personal attention/service is almost always involved for me.

      I wonder if people with sociopathic, psychopathic, or antisocial behavior disorders experience ASMR at a lower rate than “regular” people do? I just can’t imagine people like that getting the “warm fuzzies”, lol.

      Also, I read it’s now being used in advertising, which makes me wonder if salespeople, scammers, users, etc deliberately incorporate common triggers into their presentation… if not, it will probably soon be a standard part of their training, so beware! Oh and then there’s romancers/seducers, I’m sure ASMR would help them get what they want too!

  3. I’ve experienced this for as long as I can remember. When I was little me and my best friend invented a game where one of us would sit while the other stood close in front gently describing an imaginary outfit and hairstyle for the seated person, with lots of hand gestures but no actual touching. It was awesome!!
    As an adult I get it watching someone do something very carefully, especially if it is for me. Once I half watched someone through a window carefully making a cup of tea and plate of biscuits for me while I raked their lawn and I got the feeling. My mum and bro get it too. Before we knew the official name we assumed there would be a German name for it and asked a German cousin who knew exactly what we were talking about but had never talked about it before and didn’t have a name for it.
    My boyfriend has no idea what i’m talking about when I describe it and assumes it’s something weird or kinky!
