ASMR and a higher openness to experience

Research suggests that people who experience ASMR have a larger tendency to have more immersive or absorbing experiences.

People with ASMR score higher on 'openness to experience,' reflecting imagination, intellectual curiosity, and appreciation of art and beauty. People with ASMR are also more empathetic when looking at compassion and concern for others.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

ASMR is an emotional state that some people experience when they hear, see, and feel certain "triggers," such as whispering, delicate hand movements, and light touch.

People with ASMR show significant reductions in their heart rates when watching ASMR videos.

One study showed that periods of ASMR tingling were associated with increased activation in brain regions involved in emotion, empathy, and affiliative behaviors.

ASMR typically emerges in childhood. When people find out that ASMR is a "thing", they often report that they thought everyone had the same experience or that it was unique to them.
