Hypnosis Theory (Revisit)

Earlier I mentioned about the two theories of hypnosis – State Theory and Expectancy Theory.

The State Theory says that hypnosis is whereby a person enters into a state called trance through relaxation or other induced methods.

Expectancy Theory says that hypnosis is whereby a person, out of his expectation, enters into a hypnosis (if he expects to behave well in public so that he projects a good image, then he will co-operate with the hypnotist). He induces himself.

In other words, State Theory says other people induce you into hypnosis. Expectancy Theory says you induce yourself into hypnosis.  And there is a third theory which I shall name it Nature Theory. Nature Theory says you can be induced into hypnosis not by yourself or other person but by things around you.
