Topic: The attraction of hypnosis...

Apart from me...Does hypnosis as a "career" attract a lot of crazies? And should they be tested for signs of sanity before being allowed on the public?

Is it the mental states and character of hypnotists that should be regulated rather than hypnosis itself?

Just thinking....hmmm

It was a matter of practicality to me.

I had done a magic act, and saw that with hypnosis I could do more work, carry less and make more. It was just a business venture to me. Then again all I do is my show, I sell NO self help anything, I do no practice of any sort, JUST my show.

I read about Kreskin as a child, and wanted to be him. I still do.

I find that many magicians are socially inadequate, and do tricks to make up for their lack of social skills. I am a grumpy *** myself, but I don't do magic to make up for things. I am happy the way I am, which is why I never did close-up (unless there was a cheque in it).

In my experience the hypnotists have been fun guys. The magicians have been the weirdos.
