Taste...a salivation script is easy and textable. A feeling hot or cold script.

Hmm. Is taste something to easily induce? I know there's a suggestibility test where you make your subject close their eyes and imagine biting into a lemon. That way I can see it be done. But is that easily done without mental imagination??

And regarding feeling hot or cold. Is that really easliy induced without help from hypnotic trance?

I did some work on this a few years back. You can check my website wikihyp.com for some transcripts.

At one point, a brilliant student of mine collaborated with me to write a bot. It would go on Omegele, find subjects, and hypnotize them. It was quite interesting reading the logs the next morning.

Incidentally it was the perfect setting to test the hypothesis that people won't do something that is bad for them when in hypnosis. All other tests factored in the trust the subject had for the experimenter. In our case, there was no such trust. And so when someone was instructed to download and run a virus (which of course was fake), that's a pretty good proof that they were willing to act against their own best interests. Thinking about it now, we never ran a control condition to see if people would do that without hypnosis...

It was fun times.

That is indeed very interesting. How many did this bot hypnotise? And also what was the success rate of making people download and run your fake virus ??

Over all the tests, easily thousands. Maybe tens of thousands. On this particular test far fewer, but still enough to know that the success rate was pretty bad.

I tried it myself to see what was so unexpectedly hard about getting people to run the program, and sure enough I failed. Funny thing though, the reason I failed had nothing to do with hypnosis. I had the person share their screen with me and I *still* couldn't figure out how to get past their damn antivirus software!
