Fantasizers and Dissociaters: Data on Two Distinct Subgroups of Deep Trance Subjects

D Barrett. Psychol Rep.

Abstract

This study delineated two subgroups of highly hypnotizable subjects. The first (n = 19) entered trance rapidly, scored high on absorption, and described hypnosis as much like their rich and vivid waking fantasy life. The second subgroup of 15 took time to achieve a deep trance, saw hypnosis as very different from any prior experiences, and were more likely to exhibit amnesia for both hypnotic experience and waking fantasies.
