Are you easy to hypnotize? Many people assume hypnosis is only possible if you have a charismatic hypnotist to assist you, but this isn’t the case.
Many people ask, “Can I be Hypnotized?” as soon as I tell them that I am a hypnotist. Many people do not believe they can be hypnotized, while some are just curious. Because of this, I decided to this article with a standard test that will help you answer this question. A spinning spiral test is a hypnotic experiment used by researchers to examine how well someone can be hypnotized by another person.
If you want to know if you can easily be hypnotized, spin this spindle and try this hypnotizability test out – I am sure you will be quite amazed by the results.

|I just saw a spinning spiral. There was nothing unusual
|You are difficult to hypnotize.

Percentage of People Who Reach Different Levels of Hypnosis
10% of people are nearly impossible to hypnotize deeply.
These people will only reach a very light state of trance (more like a light daydream). People who are very resistant to hypnosis will always stay in that light state of daydream. Though you may not fall into a deep hypnotic state, you can still achieve many benefits in a light hypnotic trance with hypnosis.
20% of the population are somnambulists – very deep hypnotic subjects
These people go into a deep hypnotic state very quickly and easily and will also go into very deep levels.
Because Somnambulists can reach a state of hypnosis very quickly, these are the type of people that stage hypnotists try to pick when they are doing a show. Stage hypnotists do tests before their shows when they pick ‘audience volunteers’ to find these people as they are the perfect subjects to do the ‘comedy’ acts you see.
These people will gain a lot from hypnotherapy and may experience results quickly.
The other 70% fall somewhere in between
The rest of the people can definitely be hypnotized, but not quite as quickly as the somnambulists. Most of the people who fall into this category will gain excellent results from hypnotherapy. If they are ready to change.
Trance is not difficult to achieve, but it will require some practice and persistence to achieve the most profound states of hypnosis. Hypnotherapy is a popular type of therapy for many people, including many athletes and sports enthusiasts. You’ll find that it helps them get better results.
Children Are Great Hypnotic Subjects
It is also important to note that children are more susceptible to hypnosis than adults. This is because they have fewer analytical abilities as they grow up learning and experiencing things first. That is why an active imagination and daydreaming are common for most children.
