I don't understand why TIME are making out this is a new thing.

I thought Spiegel's idea was quite an old one?

Hypnotic Induction Profile

The Hypnotic Induction Profile (HIP)[2] or the eye roll test, first proposed by Herb Spiegel, is a simple test to loosely determine if a person is susceptible to hypnosis. A person is asked to roll his or her eyes upward. The degree to which the iris and cornea are seen is measured. The less of this part of the eye observed, the more hypnotically susceptible a person is. Research has shown that the scale does not carry as strong a relationship with other hypnotic scales as originally thought, with correlations ranging from 0.1 to 0.15 (Orne et al. 1979).

yeah, probably just physiology. but it could cause psychological effects.

we see everyone rolling their eyes back into their head during REM sleep and also sometimes during death. (I have actually yet to verify that. I remember reading it somewhere tho.) something to do with certain muscles being completely relaxed. ?=0

so if a subject is undergoing trance induction and completely rolls his eyes back with his eyelids closed then it might be some sort of psychological indicator to go to sleep but not normal sleep. (pavlov might call it partial sleep)

hm... would be nice if the eye test could accurately screen for prime candidates. (not sure how accurate it is) simply because of how rapid it is.

Thanks for the link. She even used some pre-show as a selection. Much better way to go.

It seems when we think something whizzed by we convince ourselves that we enjoyed it :)
