Yes, I have and I really don't think I was but they said I was.

Nope. I always want to be in control.

Never. I am too obsessed with what they may do when I am under. I do not trust anyone to have that much control over me.

On a lighter side, I love the episode of *bleep* Van Dyke where he is hypnotized to wave a paper bag over his head and cluck like a chicken.

I saw something about getting hypnotized to quit smoking. I know someone who has done it and they said it works great! Maybe one day I'll try it.

By being hypnotise many people recall things from their childhood.

I went to a club one time where they took me onstage and tried to hypnotize me along with a few other people. I played along, but I didn't believe it for a second.  :angry7:

I think it may be possible but probably the person has to be very suggestible and want it to be real. The jury is still out on this one for me.

I've never had the opportunity, but I don't think it'd work on me. I'm not skeptical, but I think you have to be able to unlock (and free) certain parts of the mind and I just don't think it'd work. I'm sure it works on others, but I'm just doubtful it would do anything for me.

Yes, once. It didn't really work for me though. I think you have to really "believe" in the ability of a stranger's ability to hypnotize you, and then you're more susceptible to it working. I personally found it to be a waste of time.

I long ago had a psychologist who used the technique in his practice and wanted to try it on me because he thought it might be helpful.  So I decided, "Why not?"  After two attempts, I just told him I didn't want to do it anymore. Frankly, the first time I pretended I was and the second time I just came out and told him I wasn't "under."  Neither time I was no more hypnotized than I am right now sitting here writing this post.

No, and it's not anything I would be interested in.
