Some of us are more suggestible than others. Are you a hypnotist’s ideal subject?
That concept — suggestibility — really is key to the whole practice, as some of us unwittingly go along with what we’re told and others resist it. Maybe you’ve seen a hypnotist bring people on stage at a show and wondered if you too would engage in such silly behavior, or perhaps you think it’s all for show. And while hypnosis can be a fun party trick, hypnotherapy has also proven helpful as a psychological tool — not that it works on everyone.
