Abstract in Undetermined

To study the phenomenology of hypnotic virtuosos, the

author employed a 2 (hypnosis vs. control) × 3 (quiescent, pedaling a

stationary bike, having a motor pedal the bike) within-subjects design

with quantitative and qualitative measures. In a “neutral hypnosis”

context with the only suggestion being to go as deeply into hypnosis

as possible, participants reported alterations in body image, time

sense, perception and meaning, sense of being in an altered state of

awareness, affect, attention, and imagery. They also mentioned less

self-awareness, rationality, voluntary control, and memory. Analyses

of the 3 physical conditions showed that hypnotic experiences were

overall similar, although quiescence was more conducive to alterations

of body image and reports of depth. These results suggest that

hypnotic virtuosos have alterations of consciousness that can be better

conceptualized as distinct states rather than being on a continuum.
