    Default ASMR and Ni

    I personally love ASMR.. I remember being 11 and doing it my first time, with I believe The Water Whispers, Ilsa, or something..

    That was my first ever time doing it, and I felt so many tingles..

    I like Cozy Cabins ASMR, now..

    But I was wondering if you find this as an Ni ordeal.. With producing abstract imagery in a way and connecting.. And maybe Fe, with being moved by a tone..

    I suppose it also can be an Si ordeal too.. EII may like it..

    But I overall feel it is for introverts and Pi cognitive functions..

    I love ASMR. I kind of get turned on by it.

    I always thought it was an Si thing though. A lot of Si users seem to be the ones with those channels.

    ASMR gives me the creeps, quite frankly.

    Every time I see it I want to shove a stick of dynamite in their ....whatever.... and say, “Let’s make some NOISE!”

    I think apart of why I like ASMR so much has do with me having synesthesia.. It also puts me into my deep trance-like state which I can get into easily..

    I always thought it was an Si thing because so many ASMR artists VI as Si egos. I’ve seen an ESI here and there. I enjoy it very much.

    I doubt ASMR is Ni. For a start, to experience it you have to "pass it through" a piece of technology such as computer. Not natural. If you wanna truly relax, go to the countryside and lay down close to a stream, bring your partner, and have them whisper beautiful things in your ear.

    I like asmr because it helps me sleep. My favorite channel is softannapl, but she went inactive years ago

    Things like ASMR, yoga, meditation etc. are those fancy Si substitutes that mostly intuitives seem to enjoy.

    The reason why I think it can also be Ni, is because of the trance state that can enter with ease.. Synesthesia also resonates to Ni, and most people who are into it heavily, have synesthesia.. But as I said, I do think it resonates with Si…

    I definitely do think intuitive are more likely to be into it than maybe an SEI.. Because sensors would rely more on practical ways to met such comfort need.

    Ni base is more apt at entering flow state than that of Si ego… Ni is characterized by its inertia and meditative, zen-wavelength.. Aside from of course, living more in head and recognizing patterns, being strong in imagery..

    Zen may sound Si superficially, but do not be fooled. A zen state is a very intuitive state, where one is detached and looking from above, basically.. It is not necessarily characterized by being in the moment.

    This chart explains Socionics Ni:https://images-ext-2.discordapp.net/...om/kX5dZWG.jpg


    Synesthesia is indeed apart of Ni, and most again, people into ASMR have synesthesia.. They have to mix the cross sounds of other stimuli and convert it into another on subconscious level..

    Si egos like SEI, would be far more likely to just cook, listen to relaxing music, have a nice hot bath, sip tea, get a massage, etc, do practical things to comfort their sensory means…

    Whereas someone as myself.. I do it in abstract ways, as with meditating and in my mind, envisioning imagery and the future, metaphors.. through journaling.. Through ASMR..

    I think it would be most appealing to IEI and EII, but an SEI also can easily fall into its loving, just they will lesser likely indulge it, being more caught up in practically, more grounded in reality sensory means to fulfill their comforting need.

    Ni and Si will share some fundamental core traits, both being Pi; introverted perceiving leads.. yet the Ni will have a more intuitive, abstract focus, and Si will be more grounded, in reality.. Both perceive internally, and the whole process of ASMR as to internally perceive information.. The Ni bases will more likely see images in their mind.. Will focus more on how it applies to them in some other way in time, whereas an Si will be fully grounded in it and absorb of it…

    Even if we as Ni users value comfort lesser so, we still like with any human, will need to it at times.. I don’t watch ASMR daily.. I watch it maybe like 5-6 times a year.. But when I do actually indulge it in, I feel very much comforted and charged by it…

    Maybe ILE and IEE will like of it too, with Si as suggestive..

    I think it just will appeal much to EII, IEI (because of our Fe and valuing warmth and absorbing the mood), ILE, IEE, and if an SEI actually finds it and somehow gets into it it, an SEI… SLI too, but they probably are lesser likely than an SEI to get into it.. Maybe therapy or something would put it into their path.

    ASMR is an acquired taste. If it has to do with any functions, it'd probably be the talanov one's since those explicitly deal with sound/visual preference.

    I find it intrusive and the associations it brings false idols. It makes me weak and unaware. It doesn't help me understand or grow or become better. It drags me into it's inertia and traps me. Makes me forget the important things. I think it's what happens when u indulge basal Ni and neglect all the other cognitive functions. ALthough all that might be a flaw in my particular disposition instead.
