Roughly how many different individual subjects account for your 100% - are we talking, 10´s, 100´s, 1000´s ?
And were you the hypnotist?
If you never fail, you're not trying hard enough.

With facts like this who can possibly dispute your experience?

We use 100% of our brains all the time its just that some only have 5% capacity to the average person.

I did see an interesting Demo many years ago when I trained with Tad James with hypnosis. It was in the early 90s. He did a part of it where he told a story about Erickson and people were falling into trance. Another thing he did was to ask the group who had been hypnotized before and gestured by putting up his hand for those to follow. Those that put up their hands he would stare at them with a stupid grin and they went into trance.....closed their eyes fell forward into a heap. Interesting as it was they had been primed with two weeks training by this point!

But I guess it might work if you were talking to a group and tried it with some. Might be an interesting demo.

But for me at least they still aren't deeply hypnotized.

And overall I wasn't that impressed by Tad's hypnosis training. In facty I did a better demo at the break much to the discomfort of him and his team. This was a time when stage hypnosis was at its peak over here and there were very little trainings available and the "secret" was kept mainly because the money being made was amazing.

Yes you can. If you watch Darren Brown he does it to people that he has never met. His racetrack video he goes to a horse race track and gives losing tickets to the cashier and gets them to pay out. Pretty trippy. Also that is what I associate Conversational Hypnosis with, putting people into a trance through speech right after you start talking to them. Igor Ledochowski has a great series on Converstational Hypnosis, it isn't cheap, but if it interests you it might be worth your money!

So neither of you think that what Darren Brown does is legitimate?

Haha. Do you?

Darren is an entertainer and it seems like you've been entertained, but don't confuse your perceptions with reality, and the realities of hypnosis.

How to do an instant induction?

Simple, scare the living crap out of someone THEN yell at them to say their name but they don't remember it.

I'd say, more than not, they won't.

AKA: Induction + Suggestion = Result of Hypnotic Amnesia

AKA: Bypass of the critical factor and the acceptance of selective thinking

Maybe, but it WILL validate the concept of an instant induction for all you unbelievers...

Great do you have videos showing? Punch in the face or kick between the legs either way would be fine!

Nothing worse to create unbelievability in a stage performance than an instant induction. Spoken like a true clinical hypnotist.

Some people have the pre-show talk already done some how, maybe from another hypnotist or even from TV or studying the subject. But that's if you are very, very, very lucky!

Hi
It would be extremely unusual for a total stranger to come up and say, relax, sleep. if not just a bit creepy.
Any information you give to a subject will take the form of an hypnotic suggestion. So if during the conversation you happen to drop in that you can hypnotise people, your potential subject begins a thought process which includes "I wonder if they could hypnotise me." Wow what would the make me do, " would they find out about......
The same often happens to people attending a show.
So I think if someone just said sleep I'd head for the nearest bus and if they said at a stage show would you please come up on stage Terry I'd say ..... And about time.
