It’s September, and things are about to get busy. We’ve been talking about it for months, and now the time is here. Envelope has got everything set up on her site and is excited about features that most of us on the team don’t really understand. She’s an IT sort of girl, you see. :)
Anyway, what this means is that the duties of team members like Michela will really come around now, and she can get stuck in. She’s been on hold for some time now.
So what am I on about? We are now ready to begin with our planned video experiments. What this involves basically, is showing a video to bunch of people, and then once they’ve seen it, we’ll ask them to answer questions regarding the video clip. This will no doubt be geared more towards Type B experiencers, but we’ll need more than just one type here.
That’s where you, the community, come in. We need volunteers for this research, and in several different groups too. There will have to be Type A experiencers, Type B experiencers, people who have both types, and non-ASMR experiencers used as a control group.
I can promise that you don’t have to be nervous at all. The team members, including myself, will likely also be participating in these experiments and surveys too. It’ll just be like on the forums or Facebook, where you all post links to YouTube videos and everyone else watches them and comments on them. Practically the same thing except you’ll have surveys, or questionnaires, to fill in afterward.
So please, if you have some time to spare and would like to help out, then check out the links to this subject on the ASMR site and forums. There should be a form (shown in diagram above) for you to fill out under the “Research” tab on the main site.
There’s spaces for you to fill out your name, email, and whether you are Type A or Type B, both, or neither. Submit this in the appropriate category. There’s a drop down box which has different options. You’ll be volunteering for the Video Trials. There are options for helping with research too, if you’re interested.
