Prior to 1967, hypnotists used one of three basic approaches to induce the hypnotic state. These were: 


1. EyeFascination
2. AuthoritarianApproach

3. ProgressiveRelaxation 


Unfortunately, most hypnotists still word their approaches with direct, literal suggestions. This did not and still does not work with approximately 50% of the population because direct, literal suggestions only work with one type of individual. 


Dr. Kappas found that there were different types of suggestibility. This explained why the direct, literal suggestions were not working with some of the population. 

Initially, learning is accomplished through our primary caretaker (e.g., mother), from birth to approximately age five. From ages six to nine, the child’s suggestibility is also influenced by his peers, teachers, and others. From ages nine to fourteen, the secondary caretaker (e.g., father) begins to influence the child’s suggestibility.
