So, that last poll to be featured on the website was all about the various theories out there concerning ASMR, and which ones you personally believed in and supported more than the others.
The poll ran for about three months or so to get enough people in to vote. Everyone had their last chance at the end of last month, and now it’s unfortunately closed.
The result of the poll is kind of what I expected, with scientific and/or medical theories garnering most of the votes. 13 People voted this way, which made up a tad more than 3/4 or 75% of the total votes (76%).
But now we move on to the runners up. 3 People out there voted for spiritual theories. This isn’t to be confused with the religious theories out there as I explained in the introduction to this poll a while back. But basically anything involving chakra, kundalini, or what what some might refer to as “New Age” theories would fall under this category. So that nearly made up for the remaining amount of votes out there, with 3 equalling about 17% in the poll. Then one person (5%) voted for psychic and/or paranormal theories.
So two categories were unaccounted for and therefore did not qualify in the total amount of votes. Those categories were religious theories, and “other” – in case you didn’t support any of the above mentioned categories.
Thanks for voting, and for being honest when taking part in the poll. No one category is necessarily right and the others wrong. If you support and believe in one theory, or two, or all of them, you are free to do so. What I support may not necessarily be what you believe in, or reflect on the entire community, and I won’t try to convince you otherwise. If it makes you happy to believe in whatever theory, then you must go with that. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
I think we can all agree on one thing though, and that is that whatever this phenomenon is and where it originated from, it certainly is wonderful and I personally cherish it every day and every time I get to experience it.
The next poll will be up soon, within the next few days, and will likely run until sometime at the end of March or early April, unless otherwise stated at some point. What it will be about will be announced soon, so stay tuned!
