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. So glad I found this site. Until yesterday I thought I was all alone in this experience because the few people I had mentioned it to in my lifetime (I’m 61) didn’t know what I was talking about and I have never heard of it mentioned by anyone else. My trigger comes when someone shows me an unexpected kindness, particularly if it is a stranger. An example would be when the doorbell rang and a youth from a local church handed me a small gift bag at Easter time. This site is wonderful! So happy to know that others experience this sensation also.

    • One of my triggers is also when a stranger shows me an unexpected kindness, that’s why I started to think it could be something like a spiritual bonding or feeling, but now I have read this website I would agree with the biology origin. Glad to hear about that trigger, it felt quite weird to me when it came from random people or situations (like being attended by a specially kind shop assistant) and wouldn’t know why.

  2. I’m 19 and I’ve been experiencing ASMR my whole life. The videos do trigger me but it has always been stronger in real life, most strongly when someone is showing me how to do something or telling me do do a list of things in a relaxed soft, voice. My oldest ASMR memory is of a neighbor girl playing “doctor” (the innocent kind… not the kind of doctor you creeps are thinking of) on me. I was laying down and she was taping my knee lightly.

  3. I’ve never actually told anyone in person about my ASMR experience. Not because I’m ashamed of it, it’s never weird or sexual, but I just don’t think people who don’t have it have a frame to understand it. I first noticed it in preschool: my friend and I would play with blocks and brushes and pretend to put make-up on each other. She probably thought I was weird, because I always wanted it to be my turn! Ha. Then around 3rd-5th grade I would get it when teachers intensely read descriptive scenes (I remembered if I squeezed my eyes or tried to increase pressure in my head, it could intensify the experience). Then as an adolescent I would only notice it if I heard a teacher write on a chalkboard every now and then, and my hand would actually paralyze temporarily because the feelings were so intense, then it would fade away. Then I finally stumbled across ASMR as a 21 year old, and a large variety of videos do it for me! I kind of like mystical videos with like a witch casting a spell on me, or someone doing a reiki session (which is weird because I’m a woman of science and don’t really put any value in the supernatural). I like feeling like I’m part of this community. I’m in medical school and I’ve always wanted to ask professors about it, but I don’t know how well that would go.

  4. I’m 51 and I went my entire life without experiencing ASMR. I had never even heard about it. Then I learned Transcendental meditation and had these sensations while I meditated. After a while I started to feel these sensations even when I wasn’t meditating, especially when I was driving my car. Now I feel them almost all the time when I’m not moving around too much. I feel it to a low level right now! I just discovered the Youtube videos and I was surprised that they worked on me. I am so happy to have found this sight because I was extremely curious as to what was happening. No one else knew what I was talking about, including my TM instructor. It’s nice to feel that I’m not alone!

  5. I’ve always felt this and I never know that about anyone that could fell the same. Since I discovered this term ASMR I started to look for videos and information. I’m very interested in the biological ways that makes this amazing feeling possible.
