I have been learning about hypnosis, inductions etc. and I have heard how there is a spectrum of how able people are to be hypnotised. There are those who will go into trance at the drop of a hat, and others who are near-impossible to induce a trance state on.

My question is, is there a correlation between where one is on this spectrum, and the success rates of rapid compared to standard hypnosis?

Any extra info would be nice. Thanks!

Check out research on absorption, a relevant personality trait. –  Nick Stauner Jul 16 '14 at 15:51
