At a wedding reception doing close-up magic. A girl, late teens, Who I had never met before, came up to me and said, "can you really hypnotise people? "
I said, "yes I can" in a confident way.
Then I took her hand, placed it on top of her head and said "There, it is stuck!"

It was stuck !

She had done all the work. She had already built me up to be 'the hypnotist' and already imagined how she might respond to a hypnotist suggestion. The speed of the suggestion interrupting her thought patterns combined with my cold, factual, 'this is perfectly normal' manner was all it needed.

I could easily have moved into a full hypnosis trance at this point.

So, yes, you can hypnotise a stranger without any introductions, or pre-induction chat.
But only if they already believe that you are 'the hypnotist.'

Greet, "hello I am a hypnotist" followed by handshake induction.

Really, guerilla hypnosis rarely works and should not be used IMO.

I don't know if this was what you were asking, Cold walk up on a hesitant subject.
He initially did not want to be hypnotized, and was resistant to hypnosis. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rXOHhR9odQ

Shock inductions should only be used in emergency situations and then only by those with a lot of experience.

Is this something you were taught and just accepted, or do you believe there are very good reasons for it?

Anything expressed that dogmatically is something he has put no thought into, Reg. Reasoned views generally have nuances.

What exactly constitutes an "emergency situation" with hypnosis?
