In your opinion, is stage hypnosis real or fake?
Though stage hypnosis is a form of entertainment that does not mean it is all fake show. In fact, it is real.
But you may ask – why then are people made to bark like a dog, walk like a zombie, fall asleep sitting on a chair etc?
Hypnosis is about the hypnotist giving instructions at a subconscious level, to the persons called on stage. Because there is the consideration for entertainment value, that is why hypnotist would choose certain behaviours that can create laughter from the audience so that there is much interaction between the stage and the floor. This will give the show more value.
