What is ASMR? How does ASMR work? What does ASMR stand for? Are you “ASMR sensitive”? Do you get ASMR tingles?
Is this the first time you’ve heard of ASMR which stands for “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response”? It might not mean what you think it means.
Millions of people experience ASMR “tingles” when exposed to certain stimuli. Triggers like hair brushing, whispering, finger tapping, clicking, chewing and caring role-playing send shivers down some people’s spine.
These same ASMR triggers are actually “misophonic” triggers for others; meaning these sounds cause negative responses. For example: nails on a chalkboard will drive some people *nuts* but others aren’t affected.
The Why Files answers these questions and raises a few more. The science behind behind ASMR is still new but research is underway. Though ASMR is a relatively new phenomenon, the online ASMR community is vibrant and growing rapidly.
Are you ASMR sensitive? What are your triggers? Let us know in the comments.
