I realise that the guy in question had a tough job when his friends filled the chairs, I reckon that could have had a lot to do with his failure to hypnotize the first volunteer. He has had some training, but that was in a rather controlled environment, and he only practiced with other trainees during the course. He had then hypnotized some friends and following this, he jumped right in to doing a show. I didn't see his show, so I don't know how many types of induction he used, but I have little doubt that his compounding of failures made the show an uphill struggle. The possibility of having the same thing happen to me is the reason I like to use a modified elman induction on a group - to date it has served me well in so much as I'm never really seen to fail (so far anyway) because I always manage to get some of the volunteers into trance with this. I would like to have more options, and have been practicing other inductions live in my shows - using them as " re-inductions" and on saturday I was rather pleased to have used the expectancy induction (3 handshakes) on the guy I mention at the start of this thread - we were having coffee, no pretalk, ( he already knows the drill!) I just asked for permission to hypnotise him, and seconds later he was well and truly in trance. You've answered my question when you said you use different inductions for different groups, I havent yet had different types of groups in my shows - the crowds have been rather alike so that's something I hadn't thought of. What I meant to ask was if people had a preference for group v's individual induction, but you reply has helped me to realise that a " one size fits all " induction is probably less than optimal. Thanks! [/quote]
