Conversational Hypnosis – Using Physical Contact Pattern Interrupts

The key to successfully applying conversational hypnosis is to use the right words in the right manner to put people under your spell. However, non-verbal communication is often equally important for influencing a person.

Physical contact is widely used as a powerful tool in conversational hypnosis. Different types of physical contacts can be superb pattern interrupts, depending on how well you use them.

Just like any word or gesture, a touch or another type of physical contact can be used effectively for hypnotizing only when you use it at the right time and with the right person.

For instance, if your friend is sharing something with you and you are trying to comfort him and to show support, it is considered normal for you to pay him on the back. In this case, this physical contact is not a pattern interrupt.

However, if a salesperson pats a prospect on the back during a sales presentation, this can be an extremely powerful pattern interrupt. Why? The action is so sudden and, more importantly, so unexpected that the person is automatically “pushed” into a state of trance, greater conscious awareness.

What I want to illustrate here is that a physical pattern interrupt is only useful when it is used within appropriate context. That is why you have to choose such pattern interrupts extremely carefully, when using conversational hypnosis.

It might go without saying, but you should not use offensive pattern interrupts of this type also. It is fine to grab a friend by the shoulders and shake him, but this is definitely inappropriate to use in sales, for instance.

In general, it is best to use amicable gestures that involve physical contact. This is safe as well as effective.

Now you know how to use another type of pattern interrupts in conversational hypnosis. Keep learning more. Continue with my article Conversational Hypnosis-Commanding Other People Through Conversation.
