    I heard a commercial by a hypnotist selling a hypnosis system to increase creativity.

    Has anyone on this forum ever used hypnosis and does the idea of using hypnosis to bring out creativity in ones improvisational skills sound like a plausible idea?

    Have I been possibly hypnotized by this commercial?

    Hypnosis rarely works for such things. Only about 25% of the population can be hypnotized to any extent. Some are very susceptible. But most cannot be hypnotized. And even in the 25%, the effects are often short term.

    Hypnotherapists often try to sell their services by saying you will be more creative, or less stressed. They also sell it to stop smoking or drinking -- or to lose weight. It works for VERY few. I would suggest saving your money.
