Derren Brown is
awesome. I've seen 3 of his shows live and met him in his dressing room
through mutual friends. He hypnotizes my daughter every time but even
tho I would love him to do it to me it never works. Any idea why?
I use self hypnosis successfully many times tho.
Could be a number of reasons. Paul McKenna told a story how he never managed to hypnotist his mum. Because his mum knew him a Paul McKenna, my son, the one who collects star wars figures and scraped his knee when he was 12 on his new bike. She doesn't see him as "the hypnotist". But another hypnotist would be able to.
In your case, there are different inductions, some work better on certain people but they'd all work. Dont know how much time he spent with you so i cant say. One big thing is the suggestibility test that goes on before they call people up. The ones who are more suggestible get called.
