Hypnosis

What is your stance on hypnosis?

Do you believe in it? Are you skeptic? Have you had any personal experiences with it? Have you heard entertaining/interesting stories of other peoples' experiences with it? Do you know the science associated with it?

What are your thoughts? If you have any, share them!

* My personal thoughts: I WAS skeptical of hypnosis my whole life until a couple months ago. I heard stories, had seen shows, etc., but always thought there was a catch and had always thought the shows were staged. HOWEVER, a couple months ago, my wife and I were married in Vegas. One night we attended a hypnosis show called "Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis." It was literally one of the funniest experiences of my life and it literally changed my outlook on hypnosis from being a skeptic, to thinking that it is a very real, interesting, entertaining and potentially hilarious phenomenon. My wife and I were actually participants on the show. I didn't last long (for I didn't become hypnotized), but my wife did and it was absolutely hilarious. The highlight of my entire Vegas trip (with an exception of getting married).

For those of you who are interested and have time to kill (like an hour to hour and a half or so), here are the youtube videos of the show in which my wife and I were participants. The show is funny as hell. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out which participants my wife and I are and I will probably get razzed about my wife's behavior on the show, but I don't care...I thought it was hilarious.

You should have slipped that guy $20 and given him some "honeymoon suggestions" to imprint on her brain for the weekend. Just saying.

Was a bouncer at a Comedy Club one time as a part time job. Hypnotist came about 3 times a year and would use us once in a while during the show. Took a guy that was average but ripped 5'8" 170lbs I'd guess and told him he was rigid as a board. I and the other bouncer tipped him flat and put his head on the seat of 1 chair and his heels on another chair where he was a bridge. He was like that for 5-10 minutes and for the Grand Finale the hypnotist (probably 150lbs) stood on the guy's stomach for a few seconds then stepped off. Another instance during his adult shows was he'd tell the females that he had "magic fingers" and every time he touched his nose they'd have an orgasm. At the end of the show he'd tell the ladies with significant others that their spouses would have magic fingers for 24 hours post-trance. He did that for one of the waitresses and her man and they verified that it worked.
Key thing, per the hypnotist, is you will not do anything while under that you wouldn't do awake.

Lol, that's an interesting take. I wish I could find the video of this old guy who claimed via 2 minute rant that people who are able to be hypnotized are more intelligent people because they follow suggestions better. I was all pissed off when I watched that, due to me not even coming close to being hypnotized on the show. I like your logic better.

People need to realize what hypnosis is and what it isn't.

It is using cadence to induce a state of heightened awareness and heightened amenability to suggestion.

In a sense it is a step-sibling of transcendental meditation.

I find myself in a strange demographic. I am utterly immune to hypnosis by others, but have learned effective techniques in self-hypnosis to de-stress and refresh. Basically focusing body part by body part and 'willing' stress or pain out of said part, kind of like wringing a washrag or furling a mat.

The self-hypnosis I can experience beneficially is mainly hyper concentration and visualization. Hypnosis by others I can't offer first hand information on, but it is limited to things the hypnosee would otherwise be amenable to.

I can't be hypnotized either. Wish I could so they could make me a more social person.

Thanks for sharing, rico. What was your wife's reaction to the video? That had to be a classic moment.

She was nervous the entire time and constantly asking, "omg, did everyone think I was stupid?" Which I had to repeatedly reassure her, "no, people thought you were hilarious." She was laughing hysterically simultaneously...especially during the air guitar, freezing cold temperature and trying to get warm under dorky guy's shirt, the snake part and the pole-dancer tryout.
