ASMR Poll Results: Can you Learn to Experience ASMR

Well, it’s that time again. The poll I ran for 3 months is now closed. The question posed to you all was “can you learn to experience ASMR?”. There were three possible answers: “Yes, it’s possible to initially not possess it, and develop ASMR”; “Everyone has it. It’s therefore only possible to realise that one has it”;
and “It’s not possible. You’re either born with it or you aren’t”.

In total there were 46 votes. The least amount of votes, 7 (15%), went to option A, saying that it’s possible to develop ASMR even if one doesn’t initially have it. The second highest number of votes, 17 (36%), went to option B, saying that everybody possesses ASMR and we all either realise we have it as a naturally occurring bodily function of sorts, or we don’t realise it. The latter would essentially be non-experiencers. And the highest number of votes, 22 (47%), goes to option C, where voters believe that it’s not possible to develop ASMR at any point in life after birth. You either have it or you don’t.

So option B and C’s results were rather close, suggesting that maybe we’re beginning to see after time that more people have this than we thought, and maybe it isn’t so rare. Maybe it isn’t rare at all, and indeed is possessed by most, if not all people.

Food for thought.

Thanks to all who cast their votes! I’ll have the next poll up soon.

  1. I think it would be fairly obvious if there are people who developed it as adolescents or adults. It might not be as obvious to people who have had it since birth, whether it can be learned or not.
    Is there anyone that took this poll who developed ASMR later in life? Leave a comment if you did.

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.
