Optimal scoring of amnesia on the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, Form A



Optimal scoring of amnesia on the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, Form A



International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis 32(1): 51-57



Response to the suggestion for posthypnotic amnesia on the Harvard group scale of hypnotic susceptibility, Form A was studied in a sample of 1351 Ss [subjects]. Reversibility proved to be a somewhat better criterion of response than initial amnesia, as indexed by both item difficulty and item-to-total correlations. Continuous scoring of recall, however, was no better than dichotomous scoring. A joint dichotomous criterion, consisting of recall .ltoreq. 3 on the initial amnesia test followed by recall .gtoreq. 2 additional items on the reversibility test, is offered as both empirically defensible and conceptually preferable.
