    I was thinking it more hypnotism than actual force. Cool if it was real. I've seen some crazy **** from hypnotists.

    It's all good until you "suggest" to them to do something they wouldn't do under any circumstance. For instance, you tell them to act like a Chicken and they probably will. You tell them to pick up the gun next to them and fire randomly into the crowd and they wont.

    I think it depends how long people are worked on and what you consider to be 'hypnosis'. US military training was changed after WWII because they found that such a small percentage of troops actually fired their weapons with the intent to hit the enemy. By the Vietnam war, the percentage had rocketed due to the new psychological conditioning methods employed.

    Hypnotists often tell their audience that 'you can't be made to do anything you don't want to'.

    They also often tell them 'more intelligent people are more susceptible to hypnosis'.

    Neither statement is true, and both are actually part of the hypnotic process to lower people's defences against surrendering their usual critical faculties to the hypnotists commands.

    According to what I've read, the easiest people to hypnotise are generally people who served time in an armed military or other highly regimented uniformed service.

    The easiest people to hypnotize are people that believe in it.

    Hypnosis and conditioning are not the same thing.

    You can't hypnotize someone into killing the president or the like

    The area where hypnosis has the strongest clinical utility is where it is used to overwhelm the fear or pain response - phobia treatment, getting a person to perform to the upper limits of their actual ability, etc.

    Most people under the influence of a stage hypnotist aren't even hypnotized - pyschology wise stage hypnotism is about removing blame and consequence, then planting an idea for you to run with - like cold reading but with more trappings and you are leading the dance.
