The word "Statistics" which comes from the Latin words status , meaning a political state, originally meant information useful to the state, for example, information about the sizes of population sand armed forces. But this word has now acquired different meanings. Â· In the first place , the wo…rd statistics refers to "numerical facts systematically arranged". In this sense, the word statistics is always used in plural. We have, for instance, statistics of prices, statistics of road accidents, statistics of crimes, statistics of births, statistics of educational institutions, etc. In all these examples, the word statistics denotes a set of numerical data in the respective fields. This is the meaning the man in the street gives to the word Statistics and most people usually use the word data instead. Â· In the second place , the word statistics is defined as a discipline that includes procedures and techniques used to collect, process and analyze numerical data to make inferences and to research decisions in the face of uncertainty. It should of course be borne in mind that uncertainty does not imply ignorance but it refers to the incompleteness and the instability of data available. In this sense, the word statistics is used in the singular. As it embodies more of less all stages of the general process of learning, sometimes called scientific method , statistics is characterized as a science. Thus the word statistics used in the plural refers to a set of numerical information and in the singular, denotes the science of basing decision on numerical data. It should be noted that statistics as a subject is mathematical in character. Â· Thirdly , the word statistics are numerical quantities calculated from sample observations; a single quantity that has been so collected is called a statistic . The mean of a sample for instance is a statistic. The word statistics is plural when used in this sense. ( Full Answer )

Whether hypnosis works or not is often a much debated question. Much of the success of hypnosis has to deal with the presupposition of the person or subject involved in the hypnosis. There are many documented cases of hypnosis proving to be beneficial with everything from quitting smoking, losing… weight all the way to being useful in therapy sessions. While some people are adamant that hypnosis will not work with them, they really don't know unless they try it. Having an open mind is often the best way to approach it.

Hypnosis is a state of concentration achieved when the brain suppresses beta wave activity (normal alertness) in favor of increased theta wave activity (the dream state). While in this state, many people find themselves becoming more suggestible, as many of the unconscious filters that monito…r dislikes and inhibitions are likewise suppressed. Because of this, clinical hypnosis can be used to treat some psychological disorders such as smoking, overeating and mild depression. Deep meditation, daydreaming, and lucid dreaming (the act of taking control of one's dreams, without waking up) are naturally-occurring examples of hypnosis. Hypnosis refers to the induction of a state of consciousness thatresults in loss voluntary action making one responsive tosuggestion or direction. ( Full Answer )

Hypnosis is a real phenomena. In hypnotic trance person is more open to suggestion and is less inhibited by automatic, reflexive responses. In the context of a stage show, this means that a person who is usually shy may help put on a good show for the audience by following the suggestions of the hyp…notist. In the clinical sense, it often means tricking, persuading, or easing a patient out of an undesirable habit or fear. It might have been Milton Erickson who said "there are no poor subjects, only inflexible hypnotists." If by this question you mean "Is the person being made to do something against his or her will?" the answer is no. Subjects must be willing participants for stage hypnosis to work. Stage hypnotists purposely set a scene that implies mystery, and power over others. That is showmanship. So it could also be said that a good hypnotist is able to convince people to be willing participants! There is some controversy on certain issues, such as the question "Are people able to do things they are not able to do in a normal state of mind?" State theorists will answer yes, while non-state theorists will say that everything that is seen in "trance" can be similarly explained as either distraction (in the case of heightened pain tolerance) or will alone.

Hypnosis is a state of relaxation where attention is directed in a way controlled by the hypnotist and the hypnotee. There is a heightened degree of suggestibility while under hypnosis, but nobody would do anything under hypnosis that he or she wouldn't do under any other circumstance.
Like guided hypnosis, self-hypnosis has a lot of different techniques that apply to it. Here's a quick one you can use starting right now in just four steps. Before you start, here's a quick definition of hypnosis: you're going to enter a special, relaxed state of focused attention. While in that …state, you'll be more open to suggestion. So, we'll enter the state, deliver some suggestions, and then come back to full waking consciousness. First, find a quiet, safe place where you won't be disturbed. I like to use a comfortable chair in a room where I know I won't be disturbed. Some people lay down on their beds, which may induce actual sleep, so be careful! The main idea is to get rid of the possibility of outside interference so you can focus inside. Second, set your intention. A trained hypnotherapist can take you through a sophisticated, hour-long hypnosis session addressing a lot of stuff. While hypnotizing yourself, it's best to keep things simple. I begin self-hypnosis by setting one intention-- like becoming more focused on my work for the day-- and setting a clear time limit of five, maybe ten minutes. This way I don't get really relaxed and come to five hours down the road. I also write down the suggestions I want to take in, using clear, direct language: "I enjoy focusing on my work," "I easily make rapid progress in getting things done," etc. Be as specific as you can. Third, induce self-hypnosis. The easiest way I've found is to count down. Close your eyes and relax. Then count from five to one. After each number, feel a wave of relaxation flowing through your body, from the tip of your head down to your toes. When you reach one, you will be in a relaxed, focused state of hypnosis. (Yeah, it's that easy.) While in self-hypnosis, deliver your hypnotic suggestions to yourself. This may seem odd, repeat in your head the things you wrote down before you went in. It works because you're in what's called an "alpha" state rather than the "theta" state of deep hypnotic trance. (To use that, you'll need a hypnotherapist or a taped induction.) Then lie back and enjoy hypnotic trance for a while. Your mind will bring you out when it's time to come out. Finally, come out of hypnosis. Again, you'll count. Go from one to five. Between each number feel yourself coming up just a little from hypnosis... until count five, and open your eyes, feeling wide awake, refreshed, relaxed, glad you were in hypnosis. That's it! As you practice hypnosis and become more used to using the hypnotic trance, you can achieve bigger and better things. Eventually you may wish to make your own hypnosis tapes. Until then, enjoy this simple self-hypnosis method. ( Full Answer )

Daydreaming is a form of self-hypnosis. There's no mystery. Get comfortable, with as few distractions as possible. Focus your vision on a pleasant scene -- many people like to use a candle flame -- and think about the matter that you want to consider. If you get distracted, just go back to the subje…ct again. If all you want to do is relax your mind, count your breaths up to five, then start over. Again, if you become distracted (which is quite normal) just bring your mind back to the counting. There is also a book called, "Instant Self-Hypnosis", by Forbes Robbins Blair. He is a professional hypnotherapist that wrote this book to show everyday people who to "hypnotise yourself as you read" with your eyes open. It includes hypnotic scripts that will teach you all kinds of things. Some of the things listed on the back of the book, but not limited to: "Having great sex, stopping procrastination, feeling more confidant, making more money, feeling more energetic, no longer fearing public speaking, eliminating allergies, and becoming more creative." They also have scripts on nail biting, quitting smoking, losing wieght, help getting to sleep, and much more. But Dr. Blair does say that result may very from person to person.

Hypnosis was created by the Austrian physician Franz Anton Mesmer in the late 18th century. Mesmer believed that hysteria was created by a poor distribution of magnetic fluid in the body, and that this fluid could be made to distribute properly. Mesmer would have his patient sit in a dark room and t…ake rods that have soaked in different chemicals and touch the afflicted parts of the patients. The rods were thought to adjust the magnetic fluid in each of their bodies. Later, Mesmer enhanced this practice by not using the rods and simply looking at his patients instead. This is were we get the word mesmerize, used in hypnosis. ( Full Answer )
The first stage iof hypnosis is Induction. It's sometimes characterised by the click of fingers. It's a stimulation of fight or flight response and moves the subject into an altered state.

Hypnosis has long been a mystery. The effects of hypnosis have been proven to help several patients in varying different areas. But what has yet to be explained by science is exactly how hypnosis works. The perception that most people have of hypnosis involves a magician with a shiny object. This m…agician waves this object in front of a crowd member to put them in a trance. After a few snaps of his fingers and a few soft words, the crowd member is soon barking like a dog or clucking like a chicken. ( Full Answer )

Statism is the doctrine that maintains that your life, money andproperty are not yours, but the property of the state. A statist isany individual who upholds this doctrine and/or supports itsimplementation. A statist knows that he cannot get away with-at least, notyet-openly declaring that your lif…e, money and property are notyours, so he advances these ideas by implicit means. Statists enact laws that forbid you from taking certain actionsaltogether or only if you have their permission-and the idea is: ifyou may only act by permission, you do not have a right to yourlife. Statists, through their regulations, determine how much of yourmoney you will be allowed to keep-and the idea is: if you do nothave the right to decide how your money is spent, your money is notyours. Statists issue decrees restricting how you may use yourproperty-and the idea is: if you do not have the right to controlthe use and disposal of your property, your property is not yours.These are the indirect means by which statists promote andimplement their ideas.

It really depends on what the client is coming in for and what they wish to achieve.

Hypnosis is completely safe and it can be used to alter and control the subjects behavior without their conscious.
Hypnosis really only works for people who are very imaginative and have a rich fantasy life, so hypnosis can't affect people who are completely against that sort of thing. Many people believe that hypnosis is good for recalling forgotten events but the truth is that usually it doesn't work for tha…t purpose and responses to memory recall are only due to leading questions the hypnotist asks. For example: If a hypnotist asks if a person was beaten as a child, the person under hypnosis may believe that they were because it was asked of them like as if it had happened. They tell themselves that that was what they wanted to remember and they alter their actual memories to support the claim. This is why hypnosis is no longer really trusted for criminal cases and important memory recall. ( Full Answer )

Hypnosis basically involves the same things as meditation. They both focus on relaxation more than anything else. It also involves complete control over your own thoughts. If somebody says "don't think about elephants," in a hypnotic state where you are in complete control over what you're thinking …about, you should be able to actually not think about elephants. So it really mostly involves relaxation, and control (in meditation the control is in the hands of the meditator, and in hypnosis, the control is in the hands of the hypnotist). ( Full Answer )

Some things that hypnosis can do are, well basically anything. But one thing that it can not do is make the person who is hypnotized do anything against their will. Meaning that if you want them to be a slave forever, they will not do it, unless they want to. Also, you must note that when you hypnot…ize someone, they will not have super human abilities. For example, the hypnotized victim can not lift a bed with one finger. So a hypnotized person can put away your clothes, or you can make them think they are a cat, but you can't make them be a slave and make them do something against their will. ( Full Answer )

For a given experiment, and a given sample size, there is a probability that a treatment effect of a given size will yield a statistically significant finding. That is, if the treatment effect is 1 unit, then that probability (the power) might be 50%, and the power for a treatment effect of 2 units …might be 75%, etc. Unfortunately, before the experiment, we don't know the treatment effect size, and indeed after the experiment we can only estimate it. So a statistically significant result means that, whatever the treatment effect size happens to be, Mother Nature gave you a "thumbs up" sign. That is more likely to happen with a large effect than with a small one. ( Full Answer )
\n. \n. Hypnosis is not in itself a treatment for anything; rather it is a means of producing a very relaxed, focused, and hyperattentive, state of mind. This can be helpful - eg as a means of stress management, or as a way of encouraging someone to discuss and reflect upon matters which s/he migh…t otherwise be reluctant to consider openly. \n. The heightened suggestibility of a hypnotised person also makes it easier for him/ her to accept the possibilities of changing aspects of lifestyle which may be doing harm; examine the root cause of phobias, negative self-image, or other personal issues, and, therefore, to learn to overcome or manage them more effectively. \n. The dissociative aspect of being hypnotised may, in some cases, be used to help some individuals better manage such problems as chronic pain. \n. In a few cases, highly hypnotisable individuals (who have consented to such!) may be "reconditioned" during intensive hypnotherapy to eliminate or change negative self perceptions: this would be highly unusual, and only ever done as an integral part of more general counselling/ psychotherapy dealing with extreme circumstances, such as trying to address the long-term effects of childhood abuse etc..
