Question by Ethan: Is hypnosis scientifically debated as real or false?

What I mean is what is the general/majority consensus?

It’s a real effect, but not everyone is subject to hypnosis to any large degree. There are tricks to finding out you are suggestible, and stage hypnotists are able to narrow down the most suggestible person in the crowd for their tricks to work.

    No one doubts that hypnosis exists. The debate is what can be done with it.

    i think hypnosis is pretty much disregarded by the scientific community as it only tends to work on those who are already EXTREMELY susceptible to suggestion.

  3. professionaleccentric says:

    Some people, such as Kreskin, have brought the matter to very serious debate.
