Hypnosis is an 'altered state of consciousness' (ASC) that is qualitatively different from normal waking consciousness.

Hypnosis is a way to alter the mental state of a person. Some magicians use hypnosis, real or pretended, as part of their acts.

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.

Cuttlefish use "hypnosis" by displaying flashy colors on their skin, putting their prey in a trance-like state.

No, hypnosis is simply a state of extreme relaxation where a person is more open to suggestion. When a person is under hypnosis they will not do anything they would find morally objectionable under normal circumstances.

1.) Hypnosis is an elaborate form of socially conditioned role play - people become hypnotized because that is their expectation when certain circumstances pertain. 2.) Hypnosis is the deliberate activation of the REM state in an otherwise conscious person. 3.) Hypnosis is a dissociative mental state induced by intense concentration and physical relaxation.

Yes, hypnosis is a real phenomenon. People have undergone operations under a state of hypnosis instead of anesthesia without pain. While hypnosis has many benefits it also has drawbacks. For example, false memories have been inadvertantly created through hypnosis that have resulted in some people being accused of things they did not do.

The social-cognitive perspective views hypnosis as a response due to different aspects of it, not as an altered state.

Different types of hypnosis are stage hypnosis, covert hypnosis (for persuasion), self hypnosis, and hypnosis for specific issues such as weight loss or smoking cessation.

Posthypnotic suggestion is a suggestion implanted into your unconscious mind while you were in an induced state of hypnosis by a hypnotist that you carry out after you've been brought out of hypnosis.

now for my answer...it is possible, you must be skilled in waking hypnosis (yes, there is such a thing), conversational hypnosis, neuro-linguistic programming (nlp), inbedded commands, language patterns and indirect hypnosis. He need not be "in hypnosis" as such, just change his "state". Once again I say yes, you can, but you must be skilled...I am a certified hypnotist and an nlp practitioner...I know what I am talking about.

It is a state of altered consciousness, however, it is induced by the technique of deep relaxation.

There are two main thoughts about the origins of the use of hypnosis. First off hypnosis is really just getting a person into a certain brainwave, or state of mind. It is a natural state and we are in hypnosis just before we go to sleep, and when we first wake up. Also when we "daydream" we are in a state of hypnosis. So to use that analogy, some say the origins go back to Ancient Egypt during the reign of Ramses the XII. However really, if one says hypnosis is a certain state of mind then we can go back much further because sitting around a campfire and chanting or beating a drum will put you in that state also. However, as far as modern day hypnosis we can go right to Franz Mesmer (1734-1815). Mesmer is where we get the term "mesmerized" today. Mesmer treated patients in groups and individually and had a lot of success in doing so. One could say that he is the founding father of modern hypnotherapy.

The correct spelling is hypnosis (technique for establishing a suggestive mental state).

Some experts in hypnosis can use the techniques of hypnosis to hypnotize someone instantly through conversation. This is called covert hypnosis. For more information on covert hypnosis and other forms of hypnosis visit hypnotizepro.com
