This hypnosis test is not a scientific indicator of your personality type, nor is it necessarily an indicator of a therapeutic outcome. The hypnosis test will give you some idea of your level of suggestibility and likely depth of relaxation in hypnosis.
Slightly receptive to hypnosis. You are predominantly analytical in your approach to life and underuse some very effective personal mental resources (your creativity and emotions). Only when you have surrendered your constant search for an answer to your questions, do you begin to use these resources. Keeping control is very important to you. It takes a lot of courage to accept help since you believe that by accepting help, you may lose control of how you like to problem-solve. Being spontaneous is avoided because again, it can seem like an opportunity to lose control and be judged. You struggle to let go and relax; you may wait until you are exhausted before you can relax. You can benefit from hypnotherapy, but certain barriers would need to be broken down through the course of your treatment. Trust and respect for your hypnotherapist are important requisites before you are ready to “open up” and be guided through a process of change. Ironically, Hypnotherapy would add more control to your life and help you resolve the issue for which you seek treatment. Can you accept that hypnosis is merely ‘a state of heightened receptivity to suggestion’ and not mind-control? Once you have accepted this, you can then benefit from using these positive techniques.
All hypnosis IS self-hypnosis and almost everybody can be "Formally Hypnotized". The key is you must want to be hypnotized and willing to be hypnotized. It's truly a cooperation. You will be hypnotizing yourself through your hypnotherapist's suggestions. This quiz is designed to help you understand not only the goals of hypnosis and what frame of mind you will be in; but also how suitable Hypnotherapy is for you as an effective modality.
