  1. When it happens spontaneously I feel guilt because I’m zoned out when I should be paying attention. When it happens in a work setting I feel vulnerable and uncomfortable.

  2. For me, it cannot happen on command. I can try to get it to happen by watching ASMR videos, and usually it will work but sometimes it won’t. It can also happen spontaneously in life.
