Poll Results: Is ASMR Hereditary

A few months back I put the new poll on the website. This poll had to do with whether you all thought ASMR is a hereditary phenomenon – that is, whether it’s inherited from your parents and such.

Well, the poll is now officially closed, and in just about three months, we managed to get 17 votes. So let’s have a look at the results; break them down:

Out of the seventeen who voted, 6 (35%) claimed that they thought ASMR is hereditary, and that their parent, sibling, or child experiences it, just like they do.

5 People (29%) said that they were the only one in their family who experienced it, and that no other immediate relation of theirs did.

4 People (23%) claimed that it’s entirely possible that ASMR is hereditary, not necessarily meaning that they themselves experience it.

And lastly, 2 people (11%) said that they outright do not believe that ASMR is hereditary.

So, the winner is number 1 on the poll, but the poll was decidedly mixed, or split down the middle, almost. There was no real landslide victory, and this made for an interesting poll, indeed.

Thanks to all who took part, and look forward to the next poll in the coming week!


  1. I found out a few months ago my brother experiences ASMR. Today, because we both have it, I decided to ask my dad if he does, with a little fear that if he doesn't he'd think I'm weird. Oddly enough, he does! And, he believes my grandfather does too. It's not scientific evidence, but it's enough for me to believe it's a good possibility.

  2. I vote its hereditary. My Mom passed it to all 3 kids. I hope I pass it to my daughter!

Bookmarking and commenting only takes a little time, and you can also consider subscribing to my RSS feed for more!

I apologise if you are having trouble leaving a comment. Sometimes the comment system doesn't accept comments. I'm looking in to this right now, and hopefully can find a fix soon. There are several potentional reasons why this may be happening to some people, and one of them points in the direction of a recent Blogger update.

This is the main reason why I am unable to respond to comments left on the blog for the time being, but rest assured that I do read and approve comments that make it through. If you really need to get a hold of me, then visit my contact page in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
