5 Myths About Hypnosis
1. You won't reveal your deepest darkest secrets
People sometimes think hypnosis is a way for someone to gather information from you that you would never want to reveal. First of all with hypnosis that we are covering here is nothing like that. People will however let their guard down and become hypnotized and maybe not even realize it and then wake up after a demonstration of the technique. During the hypnotic state the person is fully cognizant of what is going on around him although open to suggestion. You won't reveal secrets unless you want to.
2. Hypnosis does not cause memory loss
People who are hypnotized do not awake from a trance and suddenly do not remember their names or where the live. They actually become hyper-aware of everything because that is one thing conversational hypnosis is supposed to do. Since we want them alert and aware they will be more likely to give into subtle suggestion. Actually hypnosis can be used to recover memories.
3. Cannot get stuck in a trance
No one that I know of or heard of has ever been "stuck" in a trance. The Hypnotist has the power of over subjects only to a point and people never go deeper than they actually allow. This is very unlikely to ever occur although people still think this is possible.
4. Hypnosis is not mind control
Believe it or not a hypnotist is not controlling a persons mind. What he is actually doing is impressing upon them the power of suggestion. They do this by observing the subject, probing and then finally slipping into that place where the subject is in a suggestible state of mind. The hypnotist could not control and tell them to commit a crime the person would know right from wrong and not do that. Hypnosis is not mind control.
5 Only weak people can be hypnotized
This is not exactly the case. People are susceptible to other people who have wit, wisdom and can mesmerize with words phrases and tone of voice. It does not take much for people to allow themselves to be hypnotized. Even the biggest and strongest guy can fall into a trace if a skilled hypnotist attends to that person. On the other hand some people can refuse to play this game - depends on the person.
