ASMR: a phenomenon that is common but rarely talked about
asmr stands for autonomous sensory meridian response. This is a phenomena where you get feelings of relaxation and pleasurable tingling that starts in your head and can go throughout your body. It is often triggered by watching someone complete a task that is attentive, being touched on the hair or back ,and watching instructional videos. I was wondering if many people have this as it is not well documented. Personally I do and remember it as far back as preschool.This site has a more detailed explanation of what it is: asmr-research.org/ There is also an asmr group on Facebook that is worth checking out.If you do have this check out YouTube there are numerous trigger videos. If you have a special someone make sure to tell them about it because they can intentionally trigger it for you.

i didn't know there was a name for it. I have experienced something similar but I only feel a tingling sensation on my head. It doesn't happen often, and its been a long time since I have felt that. Does it go away when you reach adulthood?

I watched a couple of the videos on YouTube and just found them annoying. I guess I don't have it.
