Subjective scoring for the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, Form A



Subjective scoring for the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, Form A



International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis 38(2): 112-124



A scale is presented which assesses subjective experiences associated with the test suggestions contained in the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, Form A (HGSHS:A) of Shor and E. Orne (1962). This scale, along with the standard HGSHS:A self-scoring test booklet, was administered to 479 students at the University of Connecticut and 618 students at North Dakota State University, and normative data from these samples are reported. Correlational analyses indicated that the scale was both reliable and valid as a measure of hypnotic responsiveness. It is suggested that it may be useful to supplement behavioral scoring of hypnotizability with subjective scoring.
