    MBTI and ASMR?

    I was just wondering if there was a correlation between MBTI and ASMR. So what type are you, and do you experience ASMR?
    For those of you who don't know what ASMR is, here's the definition:
    "Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is a physical sensation characterized by a pleasurable tingling that typically begins in the head and scalp, and often moves down the spine and through the limbs."
    It can be triggered from things like nail tapping, scratching, writing sounds, people whispering/soft voices, certain Youtube videos, like instructional ones, adverts etc.
    If you don't understand what I'm talking about by now and think it sounds very strange, then you probably don't experience ASMR. So if you don't get ASMR please tell me your type down bellow as it won't let me post that many options, and if you do get it then just tick on the option that applies to you :) Thanks!

    I doubt there's any MBTI correlation, but I experience ASMR related to whispering. The physiological response makes it incredibly awkward when someone is whispering in my ear that I wouldn't... yanno... sleep with...

    I have this mostly when people do something physically. Like, where I used to work. I did the night shift so sometimes I woud have to wait for something in the morning and see the day shift (which where all females) preparing the shop. I used to sit there and watch their hands as they were preparing stuff. Relaxes the shit out of me till the point I just want to sit there all day long lol

    Youtube videos don't really work on me though, it has to really happen infront of me.

    So that's what it is! I always used to describe it as just enjoying the sound of friction, I never realized there was an actual name for it. This video just really gets me.

    And I also have a similar response to the sound of someone licking something... I can't help but feel weird when I type that...

    Mostly when reading really good writing. Nothing triggers it more consistently than that.

    Is it possible that some of these sounds are soothing where others are really annoying when you have this?

    i.e. I love white noise of a fan, running water, the breeze in the leaves, strokes of pens and pencils ect.
    but I hate constant tapping of feet and pens, chewing and smacking of lips ect.

    Also, I got my hair washed once at a salon a while ago and it was absolutely orgasmic feeling, would this be considered ASMR? And I looked it up myself and it said Bob Ross's show The Joy of Painting induces this. I watched this all the time as a kid and have watched it a lot recently after rediscovering it. Now I might know why.

    You need to normalize with respect to the proportion of PerC users of specific types...

    ASMR is fascinating.

    I'm an intj and I experience those sensations. Sometimes when I'm super relaxed while meditating or having sex.
    Not really into asmr definitions. I just took a peek at some of the asmr videos on youtube and all of them are fetish vids.

    ENTP, ADHD, ASMR...I'm looking to see if there is any corelation between the ADHD and ASMR.

    ESFJ and I, unfortunately, do not experience ASMR. The only time I've ever felt anything like that is when I got a scalp massage at the hairdressers. I can also get tingling sensations from listening to certain types of music, usually choir vocals. I'm going to guess that it doesn't count, though.
