Comparison of the Creative Imagination Scale and the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, form A



Comparison of the Creative Imagination Scale and the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, form A



International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis 27(3): 265-277



Subjects [237 human] were administered both the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, Form A (HGSHS:A) of Shor and E. Orne and the Creative Imagination Scale (CIS) of Barber and Wilson and Wilson and Barber in separate testing sessions. The extent of relationship between the 2 scales and the question of whether CIS is an index of hypnotizability as traditionally measured by HGSHS:A were examined. Performance on CIS relates positively to success on HGSHS:A, but the 2 tests are independent in their underlying dimensions. The CIS appears to tap primarily the processes of imagery and imagination which are only partly related to performance on the more complex scales which measure hypnosis as generally conceptualized.
