So apparently some people are truly freaked out about stuff like this. Nails on a chalk board?
ASMR stands for "autonomous sensory meridian response," that tingling feeling you get at the back of your neck and over your scalp when you hear a certain sound or experience a certain stimulus. It's a big trend right now, and there are countless videos on YouTube of people whispering directly into microphones and tapping their fingers on things to try and stimulate an ASMR response for viewers.A lot of people find it relaxing.
Others, well, they find it horrifying.
I think it's really cool and innovative.
What do you think? Does it actually bother you?
I'm at a loss for why this might aggravate a person's senses.
