you to be suggestive this is why often they will use tricks to trick you into believing into it before starting the show... Once enough people come to
see you the size of the masses has his own effect in enforcing the belief of the hypnotist being all "powerful" so such conditioning might not be
A common trick was brand of gum that really hot I don't remember the brand name you would unwrap one and put it in your mouth and make a ball with the
paper making sure the interior was sticking out the goal was to have someone hold it in their hands while you'll tell them "Its becoming hot...
hotter....hotter..." the "hot" powder on the paper would start stinging their sweaty palm and it fooled them into believing into it.
The hypnotist then chose the ones that has the most "shocked" reactions knowing they will be easy to pull under.
Being free thinkers we're not bounded or easily fooled like this hence we are naturally immune.

Its funny because this is complete nonsense...
A hypnotist (myself) will do a tester with volunteers from an audience, the reason being, is to find the quickest people in the audience when it comes
The tester enables you to select the faster people to hypnotise, it does not matter who you are, where you are from or anything else. Anyone can be
hypnotised yet others might take longer than others.
The more intelligent a person is, the easier it is and the less intelligent they are, the harder it is.
If you are doing a show, you want to find the easiest route possible as you do not want an audience waiting any longer than needed to put anyone or a
group under than needed because it is boring for others to watch.
I just am baffled at the sheer garbage I read on this site these days by people who have no idea or experience in the slightest when it comes to what
the topic is about.
I have even provided proof in this very thread for anyone that does not believe this or suggests otherwise yet the same garbage is posted.
It is also worth mentioning (yet again) it is not hypnotists you have to think about, it is the fact that, we as a species are so easily influenced by
other peoples will that is the worry.
What is really going on when it comes to your or my version of reality?
When it comes to the influence of the big shots who call the shots and they fully understand what makes us all tick.
I wish I could reach out and grab a hold of some people in this thread and others and scream "WAKE UP!"
Just think about it for a few minutes.
