The relationship between interrogative suggestibility and susceptibility to hypnosis



The relationship between interrogative suggestibility and susceptibility to hypnosis



Australian Journal of Clinical & Experimental Hypnosis 22(1): 53-64



Using the Gudjonsson Suggestibility Scale (GSS; Gudjonsson, 1984) and Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility (HGSHS:A, Shor and Orne, 1962) as measures of interrogative suggestibility and hypnotic susceptibility, 117 subjects were tested to examine the hypothesis that a relationship exists between these two measures of suggestibility Subjects were assigned randomly to conditions within a 2 (susceptibility: high, low) times 2 (state instruction: hypnosis, waking) times 2 (feedback on the GSS: neutral, negative) design. The data suggest that the two types of suggestibility are, in fact, associated. Analyses indicated that suggestibility scores on the GSS differed appreciably for high versus low susceptible subjects, and the HGSHS:A was significantly correlated with yield scores on the interrogative suggestibility scale. Results challenge previous claims that the two types of suggestibility are independent of one another and have forensic implications that may be usefully explored.
