Today, I’m talking about ASMR. ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. Now first though, I should warn you that I’m not sure that ASMR is scientifically correct. All I know is that there are lots of other people that have it (I’ll tell you what it is in just a second) and that is what they decided to call it. Also, not everyone has ASMR. 😦
ASMR is usually described as a tingling feeling that starts in your head and the back of your head and then it spreads to your neck and down your spine. Sometimes you can feel it in your arms or in your toes. There are certain “triggers” that make this happen;
- “Exposure to slow, accented, or unique speech patterns
- Viewing educational or instructive videos or lectures
- Experiencing a high empathetic or sympathetic reaction to an event
- Enjoying a piece of art or music
- Watching another person complete a task, often in a diligent, attentive manner – examples would be filling out a form, writing a check, going through a purse or bag, inspecting an item closely, etc.
- Close, personal attention from another person
- Haircuts, or other touch from another on head or back”
Quotations were quoted from http://www.asmr-research.org/
Sometimes, a person’s ASMR can be triggered by different things like going to the doctor’s or eating or just hearing yourself/other people eat, which sounds REALLY strange but it is true.
Also, it is not a bad thing or something that you should feel bad about! It has absolutely nothing at all to do anything sexual so don’t worry!!
If you want to see if you have ASMR or if you just want to have the cool feeling, there are lots of videos on YouTube. Just search ASMR! Let me know if you have ASMR!! 🙂
If anyone wants to know any more about this just ask me or you can look it up for yourself!
I will leave you with a warning. Do not overdue it with the ASMR videos, it is possible to build an immunity to it! SO just watch a couple videos at a time, I find then when I watch too many videos, I temporarily will not be able to feel any tingles anymore. However, it is possible to have a permanent immunity to it, so just be careful!
