I'm doing #456, Can you be hypnotized? This is a very startling fact, but you can be hypnotized. But not like you think. Like you don't lose control, your fully awake, but not as aware of your surroundings as you usually are. Its just little things like quitting smoking or stop eatting meat. After New Year is usually the besiest time of year for a hypnotist because of the resolutions people make. They just don't want to hold onto it, so they go to the hypnotist to help them. The kind of hypnosis you do on stage is jest for fun, not like this at all. Some times, in the movies, the person hypnotizing is a magician, but I'm not sure that's true.
