It’s time for the current ASMR Poll to close, after 3 months. You’ve all had a nice long time to cast your vote. So, the question was: “Do you get ASMR from digital media?”
Let’s dissect the results.
Out of 30 voters, 10 (33%) said that they always got ASMR from watching recommended digital media. This includes YouTube videos, sound clips, TV shows, radio; everything.
A slightly higher percentage of people claim they only get ASMR from digital media sometimes. 13 individuals (43%) voted for this option. This means that recommended video and audio triggers won’t always do the trick for whatever reason.
2 people (6%) said they only get it from certain digital media. So only video triggers, or only audio triggers. It’s like Tora in the interview on The Buzz last month claimed: “I’m not a voice person”, and “it’s visual for me” in response to questions asked by Afentra, one of the hosts of the segment.
And a few people -a sixth of all respondents (5 people, or 16%)- claimed to not experience at all while watching or listening to any sort of digital media. Only real, personal experiences trigger ASMR in these individuals, perhaps making it harder for them to experience. But it’s a hell of a motivator to get out of the house, I suppose!
So those are the results. Stay tuned for the next poll, which should be up and running and ready for you to vote on in the next few days, hopefully! On Twitter I asked for suggestions for the new poll, so send them in by next week, or else… I’ll have to make one up again.
Thanks to all who voted!
