Some researches reveal that the ability to be hypnotized is a talent, like having a talent for music.
I do not see it that way. Whether a person can be hypnotized depends on a few factors that include an imaginative mind; willingness to follow the hypnotist’s instruction; having an open mind; how easily you could enter into hypnosis.
Look to children from the age of 8 and above. They are good candidates for hypnosis because most of them possess 3 out of the 4 factors listed above.
It has nothing to do with talent. In fact, just one factor alone may put a person into the ‘hypnotizable’ category and that is having AN OPEN MIND!
If you have an open mind, you are more ready to listen, accept and act on the idea.
