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. Encouraged to see this community growing. I’ve had ASMR sensations since I was young, mostly triggered by important moments in life, or the hight of a story in a movie when accompanied by music. I notice the trend of people looking for ASMR “triggers” but I also experience the ability to conjure the sensations even when I’m alone, in the quiet, meditating or thinking about stories of how people survive hardships. For me, the concept of human survival is what often moves my ASMR sensations. I think this is some exciting stuff!

  2. I have been experiencing this my entire life, I’m 27 now. I have told friends about it and they did not understand what I was talking about. Currently I know 2 people in real life that cause the sensation. I only have it when people are talking, nothing else causes it. One of them speaks Dutch, the other English and French. There is also a youtube video that causes it, that guy speaks French: http://youtu.be/M0qanlnnN-c?t=4m19s This is unintentional, I have not found a single ASMR video on youtube that works for me though… No one can explain this to me. I’m not worried, but I do find it weird.

  3. Regarding the age skewed results, a large portion of your ASMR-experiencer respondents may send the survey to older relatives if needed. I know I would in the name of research.

  4. I heard a story on NPR recently about this and was astounded. I’ve experienced this as long as I can remember. It is triggered mainly by people doing things for me. For decades I never mentioned this to anyone. It just seemed too unusual, and I figured that if I weren’t alone, someone would have mentioned it before.

    I had a powerful experience today after a physical therapy session that involved following simple instructions to do some stretches and exercises.

    I think my wife thinks it’s a little wacko. I told her about it after the NPR report.

  5. Delighted to find this website as I had wondered for 60 years how widespread the tingles were. The skewed age range of your respondents probably just reflects smaller internet use in the older population.

    • I agree with Mary Quite Contrary. I am 61 and have experienced this ever since I can remember. I remember I would lay in bed as a small child about 5 years old and the sound of the nearby train would start to trigger the tingle and I would fall asleep. All through my life I had this feeling. I can make it come whenever I want. Sitting at my computer at work I can start the trigger myself and take a break. It is so wonderful. I have also been able to concentrate the tingles on a painful area in my body and it would make the pain go away. I would like to know more about this. For a long time I thought it could be something spiritual and I still do think it might be along with the biological aspect. I have taken a class in healing touch and it really works with that on other people. I think it would be great to be able to transfer this feeling onto others. More research should be done.
