What is ASMR? How does ASMR work? What does ASMR stand for? Are you “ASMR sensitive”? Do you get ASMR tingles?

Is this the first time you’ve heard of ASMR which stands for “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response”? It might not mean what you think it means.

Millions of people experience ASMR “tingles” when exposed to certain stimuli. Triggers like hair brushing, whispering, finger tapping, clicking, chewing and caring role-playing send shivers down some people’s spine.

These same ASMR triggers are actually “misophonic” triggers for others; meaning these sounds cause negative responses. For example: nails on a chalkboard will drive some people *nuts* but others aren’t affected.

The Why Files answers these questions and raises a few more. The science behind behind ASMR is still new but research is underway. Though ASMR is a relatively new phenomenon, the online ASMR community is vibrant and growing rapidly.

Are you ASMR sensitive? What are your triggers? Let us know in the comments.

    hello 😀

  4. Why is this a ad instead of a actual YouTube video lol

  5. Nice video, learnt a lot of new things you should earn more subs. Keep it up

  6. This ad led me hear 😂

  7. Learned a lot thank you! 😀

    hope you get a lot of subs soon✨👑

    Also the goldfish-

  8. This channels underrated

  9. It is criminal you don’t have more subs this channel is absolutely fantastic, like you can straight up tell that there is so much work put into these videos, can’t wait for the channel to grow

  10. Ah yes i DIDNT know

  11. I see this channel getting big

  12. Any Asmrtists Just here because of no reason 😂

  13. Ohhhh that was a good one lol, and subscribed right there, we’ll see how this particular channel Pan’s out, best wishes AJ and of course Mr heckle fish, did I spell heckle correctly??? lol

  14. Kour channel has so much work put in it how do you have more subs!? keep it up you will blow up in time 👍

  15. I never knew what ASMR was until this year. Took me 24 years. Bob Ross and paper. I always loved the sound of paper. I loved page turnings, how a newspaper crinkles. Everytime I was close enough – doesn’t matter if they were a relative, friend, a complete stranger or if it was a movie – if I was near someone turning pages of a book or newspaper doing anything that made paper sounds, I would listen to it. When this happened I would go in a trance. I always got little tingles behind my ears, the back of my neck, and my head. It is a nice tool besides reading a book to put me to sleep. It’s weird how some people like me have bodies that react to these things. It’s also quite intriguing.

  16. Ill remember when you get to 1m subscribers man 🙂

    carry on doing your science things 🙂

    why do I feel like I’m saying hatrid?

    btw you got a new sub!

  17. The Bob Ross afro in the thumnail

  18. Really good video man. Definitely earned my subscription.

    Only clicked in because this was an ad

  21. I see you in a million subs by the end of 2021.

  22. There is so much character in this video. How on earth don’t you have a bigger fan base???

  23. Fish talk

  24. This channel is going to grow with all these well done videos, I subbed and its definitely worth doing. Effort into this is exceptional, I can’t believe they don’t have 5 million subscribers. They deserve more!

  25. Love this – subbed and liked.

  26. My guess as to the reason some of us experience it is it’s a leftover gene from getting groomed as apes, and it’s only evolved out of some of us, or linked to the want to be affectionate with others, as many triggers are things that qould only come up in nature during quiet or sensual times with loved ones. The link to synesthesia is something i haven’t heard but also sounda very plausible, great content dude keep it up!

  27. Loving the vids mate keep it up!!

  28. Also glad to be the 300th subscriber 😊

  29. I was shocked when I saw you only have 308 subs you deserve so much more with the effort you put into these videos? Hope you do well!

  30. You have an interesting channel Man, you may blow up, keep it up 👍

  31. My favourite is eating asmr ;w;

  32. Why tf I am immune to everything that makes you dizzy and tingles you on the internet ?

  33. Was jerry Lewis reincarnated as a goldfish?

  34. Go Hecklefish!

  35. Safe word lol 😂

  36. Asmr can be in bdsm

  37. Bone crunching/cracking – NOOOOOOO.
    Slurpy/sloppily/noisy eaters – NOOOOOOO.
    His voice – yeah!!
    Oh bubblewrap!
    My dog would intentionally step onto the large bubble bubblewrap! 😆😆

  38. Ok so basically ASMR is a Braingasm.

  39. 62yr old and now I find out not all people experience this. Mine is certain music, literature, taste, scenery. Acts of kindness. Either that I can create them within myself. Really surprised to find out not all people experience this. Really?

  40. Wish I had as the, instead I have chronic migraines, I’ve had them for 36 years and my neuroligist says I’m gonna have them the rest of my life

  41. Watching someone draw. Mine isn’t through sound but just by watching drawing motion. It’s weird but cool.

  42. /b sent me here

  43. I bet everyone has at least one trigger

    They just haven’t found it yet

  44. I have always wondered the technical name for this response. I am unique in that I have full control over my ASMR response, basically I can instantly give myself goosebumps. Using this technique, I can dull the sensation of pain, quickly calm myself when nervous, or lull myself into semi conscious meditative state, it is always coupled w/ deep breathing.

  45. I hate it so much! ASMR!

  46. Sadly I have low IQ, so I cant enjoy the video :/

  47. God’s mercy endures forever yet still sends people to HELL FOREVER makes no sense whatsoever.

  48. I like the shuffling of cards and hair brushing💙💙💙or fire cracking or the make up one and flipping books pages and sorting out pencils and colouring in books 💙💙💙
