after watching a lot of videos online a lot of hypnotist don't even do suggestibility test they just ask people to come up and the first people up get to participate.


Herein lies a huge problem with younger kids and those interested in getting into stage hypnosis. what you see online and on youtube are CLIPs - segments, highlights from a performance. Rarely do you ever see a full stage show in it's entirety. Almost always the pre-talk, suggestibility tests and at least a portion of the induction are omitted - not included in the clips you are watching. This does not mean these were not done. They are just boring and not quite as exciting as the guy singing into his ***. These "highlights" are the clips that you see, the clips that seem to attract most newbies to stage hypnosis, the clips are the "good stuff" that everyone wants to get to, but none of the "good stuff" happens without the skill and knowledge of the other necessary segments. These come through the afore mentioned training.

I do not do suggetability tests. BUT I do have an opening lecture that weeds out the need for them. IF you saw a highlight of me (which you never will online.) it would seem as if I don't use them.

I agree, a good strong opening lecture can eliminate any need for suggestibility tests if done well. Sometimes though suggestibility tests can be appealing or engaging to the audience too.
