Is hypnotism real?

When I see videos I'm never sure.

Yes. I've been hypnotized and it's very real.

As real as magic(at least from some magicians. )

Ive been a hypnotist for 29 years, and its very real. There are a number of things that can affect its effectiveness, but I have had very positive success with using it to help people. If you wish to talk more Im around....if not, no problem

@FORMERLYbatovn Hi. I'd like to learn a bit more about the kind of hypnotism you do,

It is but stage shows kinda make it seem fake...they sometimes do complex dental procedures using hypnosis..its a dissociative process akin to daydreams

@bookerdana But stage shows are designed to be sort of "Hollywood";they are meant for entertainment.But that doesn't mean the process isn't legitimate.

@DavidT8899 no it is but i understand the OPs confusion
Can it pass testing? Do exactly what it’s claimed to do?

If it’s not science, it’s superstition.

It's real, my dad was hypnotized at the hospital to quit smoking.
Never smoked again.
DavidT8899 · 22-25, M
Its real enough,but there's NOTHING mystical about it;its all scientific principle.

Annie, I wonder why you haven't responded to my messages?
Annie1899 · 36-40, F
@Strictgram I honestly don't know.
i saw a show on stage once and it just seemed set up and fake
Annie1899 · 36-40, F
@SW-User That's what I was wondering.
I don't know either.. i guess its possible but who knows
I had a professor who was a forensic hypnotist

Yeah it’s real
Sorta of, some people are susceptible to it and others are not.

I’m sceptic also I see it and think no way
Only works on some people.

@BiasForAction Have you been hypnotized or seen it done in real life?
I think it's real, but deeply misunderstood

@ImperialAerosolKidFromEP Would you elaborate?
