Permissive and Authoritarian Hypnotic styles

Permissive and Authoritarian Hypnotic styles

 

There are two major approaches to hypnotic language which are broadly the permissive and authoritarian Hypnotic styles .

The authoritarian is more traditional and is characterised by directness. Often authoritarian suggestions will be clear, short and to the point. These will be delivered in a confident, bordering on commanding tone. Often authoritarian suggestions will be delivered in a clipped manner with significant pauses between them.  By tradition sleep suggestions are associated with the authoritarian approach, most well know of which is “deep sleep”, but also “drowsy” ,”tired” and “sleepy” are common. These type of inductions are believed to be more appropriate for people who are used to giving and receiving orders, although they should rarely be given in such a strong manner. In addition, these are often suggested as good techniques with analytically minded people who prefer clear direction.

The permissive by comparison is a gentler approach, being generally slower than the authoritarian. Permissive approaches give the subject choice, or rather the perception of choice. The subject may be “invited” to relax, asked which type of relaxation do they think they will experience first “mental or physical?” , questions and invitations are common indicators of a permissive approaches. Typical suggestions used in permissive approaches include “you may…” “perhaps..” “some people…” and “relax” . Permissive inductions allow the subject the sense of retaining control over their depth of experience by allowing them these choices and not forcing them to go deeper.  Evidence suggests that most people are more comfortable with permissive approaches.
