Self Hypnosis Test
Are You A Good Candidate for Self Hypnosis?

Can you perform a good self hypnosis test?  Do you know why you need one?  Find out if self hypnosis will work for you...

Here I talk about different tests, as well as give you one to do now. Before we get into the nitty-gritty of the test, though, let's play a bit.

Visualize the following:

“There’s a pendulum swinging in front of you…

You're breathing softly in and out...

Your attention is focused only on the pendulum...

Your eyes are glued to it...

You must follow it...

Wherever it goes, you follow it...

The hand holding it moves to your left side...

Your eyes follow it...

The hand holding it moves to your right side...

Your eyes follow it...

Back to the center, you're watching it swing back and forth..

Left… Right… Left… Right…

And it goes on, and on, and on…

It seems to be swinging forever.”


What did you “see” as you read those words?  Did you picture yourself in a room facing a hypnotist swinging that pendulum in front of you while you’re also doing the breathe in, breathe out thing?

If you did, good job, you passed this self hypnosis test with flying colors and you’re well on your way to being a perfect candidate for self hypnosis.

Although there are many types of hypnosis, the swinging pendulum is a common misconception.  Traditional hypnosis is usually done through creative visualization, as well as self hypnosis methods.

Many times, an imaginative mind is related to success in self hypnosis, but it's not the only ingredient.

Self Hypnosis Test

Jumping into self hypnosis without a clue can be like jumping out of a plane with an imaginary parachute...

You “think” you're safe, but the reality is that you're plummeting fast out of control.

Before delving into this, you should be aware of your strengths and weaknesses as far as the skills necessary to determine your success with self hypnosis.  This is what you call a self hypnosis test.

It's a good idea to do a self hypnosis test before embarking into self hypnosis simply because, if you don't have the necessary tools to make it work...

You can get a little professional help to get you acclimated for self hypnosis...

Or, you can work on acquiring those “personality tools” through your personal development plan...

Which sets you up for success right from the gate when you do start your self hypnosis instruction through a workbook or course.

So, I've put together a simple self hypnosis test that lets you identify the necessary “personality tools.” 

Self Hypnosis Test

For each question, give an immediate, honest answer of either “yes,”
“no” or “somewhat”  (if you're not quite sure.)

Here we go!
  1. Can you create vivid pictures in your mind when imagining something?
  2. Can you keep control of your mind when distractions loom around you?
  3. Do you highly trust yourself when starting something new?
  4. Are you able to focus and hold attention for at least 30 minutes?
  5. Do you always daydream?
  6. Do you know how to write affirmations safely?
  7. Are you persistent?
  8. Do you have a definite goal in life?
If you had 6-8 “no” answers, then you really need some help getting started and should contact a self hypnosis expert.

If you had 4-6 “no” answers or 6-8 “somewhat” answers, you’re not really the perfect-candidate, but you could acquire the skills with a little help and some practice.

If you had 6-8 “yes” answers, then you indeed can do self hypnosis!   Your strong imagination combined with your ability to stay calm and relaxed makes you a great candidate to start now on your own.  Since you're so strong, a little professional advice to get started would catapult you quickly into success.

NOTE:  Since self hypnosis is more about relaxation, it is not intended for those who have ADHD. And those who have an unimaginative mind may have a hard time catching the idea.

Self Hypnosis Test

You may or may not be a highly suggestible individual when you start hypnosis.  How do you know your level of suggestibility?  A professional hypnotherapist can give you that test.

If you can't take that test, does that mean you shouldn't do hypnosis?  No, it means that you may have a harder time getting started if you're not very suggestible...

But as you practice more and more, you'll get better and more susceptible to the trance.

I personally go deep, deep, deep into a trance now that I've been practicing self hypnosis for many years. 

Just keep going, it'll get better.


I've put together a self hypnosis program that helps you find the limiting beliefs that stop you from the life you desire and teaches you how to write positive affirmations correctly so you know they will work.

The really cool thing about my program is that it has brainwave meditations and silent subliminals to help you make change effortlessly.  Click here to check out this cool program...

Self Hypnosis Test

There is one hypnosis test that professionals do to “test” whether you are sufficiently induced in a “trance” or if they need to guide you deeper.  This test is an important stage of hypnosis and offers “proof” of the induction.

This test, however, cannot be done objectively with self hypnosis. 

So, how do you know if you're in a good level of hypnosis?

You'll start seeing results from your sessions, as well as start feeling certain body sensations the more you practice.
