I dont know about a person, but to hypnotise a rabit you turn it on its back and hold its legs together, then gently rub its ears. this is what i heard anyway. dont think itl work on people! lol! but you can give it a try anyway!!!!

Find a way to gain their trust completely.
Remember, hypnosis only works on people who WANT to believe what you tell them.

You roll them over on their backs and scratch their stomach. 
No wait. that's for a lizzard or a chicken I don't remember.
Sharks too, I think

It's not something easily explained here. I'd expect that if you plugged that question into Google you'd find a lot of "answers", but it's something to be learned rather than following instructions.

L
First you select a person from the audience who is either a good actor with whom you've already made an agreement or who at least seems to be a reasonably good actor and eager to please.

Then you bring them up and talk to them a while, chant a mantra, speak in a soothing tone, wave a magic wand or twirl a spinning disk.  It doesn't really matter.  You can jump around and shout and breath fire if you want, it makes no difference to your actors and it's all for show.

Once your actors appear to be hypnotized (because they're acting), proceed to suggest mildly embarrassing routines like making animal noises or dancing ridiculously.  When satisfied, let them know it's time to come out of hypnosis and if they're good-enough actors they'll act surprised at what they've done.

Take a bow.


Hypnosis may or may not be a real phenomena but it is employed with some small degree of success in psychological medicine.  It's validity as an actual mental state is hotly debated in the psychological community and frequently denounced.  It's usefulness ad a therapeutic tool is debated as well, but there's significant evidence that it is indeed helping many patients.  Of course placebos prove to be helpful frequently too, but that doesn't mean they actually do anything.  Two things prevent people from using it outside a therapeutic setting:

1.  It seems that nobody can be hypnotized against their will and that people in a state of so-called "hypnosis" still won't do or say anything they don't want to do anyway.  In other words, the best it does for a person is to provide them with an excuse.

2.  Nobody can settle on an agreed-upon tried-and-true method of inducing hypnosis.  The few approaches that seem to work and hold up under any scientific scrutiny all require a good deal of time and the active participation of the person being hypnotized.   The hypnotist is almost extraneous to the process.

First, you need a gold pocket watch on a long gold chain, then...
Nah, actually I'm not so sure that anyone can really hypnotize another person, at least not the way you see it in the movies. People can be susceptible to suggestions and influence by a strong personality, (consider the followers of Jim Jones and David Koresh) but putting them into a trance and having them follow your commands, I don't think so.
When I was in college, I had a roomie for one year that was a Psychology major. He tried to hypnotize me several times, it never worked. We discussed it and both of us felt it was a matter of influence, not some trance like effect.
