Is it sick to want to control other people's mind with hypnosis?

I have seen many courses and books on covert hypnosis, you know, stuff like ‘Hypnotize others without them knowing and make them do what you want’. Heheh, who wouldn’t want to be in control of others, but my question is: is it sick to desire such thing?


  1. Yes, because no human should be able to control any mind but their own. And even then some people have trouble controlling their own thoughts so they shouldn’t be allowed or desire to control the thoughts of others.

  2. YES!!!!! And illegal in some jurisdictions. Depending on what you may want to have them do it may help you get a nice stripped sun tan…..

  3. Firstly, I would like to mention that many people don’t have a clue what is covert hypnosis. It’s not the same as ‘traditional hypnosis’, covert hypnosis has nothing to do with that ‘scary’ (and unreal) scenes of hypnotist making other people do things against their will you may have seen in the movies. It’s about psychological principals we function on. It should be better named ‘Art of communication and persuasion’. And all convincing language is ‘hypnotic’ and makes use of principles of covert hypnosis.
    “Many people ask me if it’s not “sick” to desire to control other people with hypnosis, without them knowing. What kind of people would like to learn how to hypnotize others, are they some kind of power hungry freaks, is there something wrong with their personality? Or are they just frustrated, unhappy people seeking this kind of information in the hope to find a way to a better life?
    I don’t think so….
    Let me tell you something. If you are a normal person, then also YOU have the basic human need of being loved, appreciated and needed by others. Imagine how you would feel if nobody took notice of you, you had nobody to share your joys and sorrows with, nobody there when you needed it most. Sitting at home all on your own, feeling unloved, unneeded. You would get depressed! Maybe you would start to blame or even hate others, or whole the world for your situation feeling sorry for yourself…
    And what will be the reaction of others? They’ll run from you as fast as they can! Vicious circle, very difficult to get out of sometimes. Nobody wants to be around depressed and unhappy people.
    Now ask yourself, what do YOU do to fulfill your basic need of being desirable, loved and respected? What ways and tactics do YOU use to persuade others about your value? And you use them, that’s for sure, only you may not do it consciously …
    Are your techniques of persuasion (whether conscious or unconscious) effective? Are you one of these special people everybody loves and follows? Do you get what you want easily?
    If you answered yes, then congratulations, you are already using hypnotic techniques of persuasion naturally, without being aware of it. You have a special gift and you must be a very happy and satisfied person! (but why are you reading this??)
    If you answered NO, then your techniques of persuasion are not doing very well… wouldn’t you like to be more convincing and charismatic? Is that a weird desire? Learning ‘how to hypnotize others’ secretly (= indirectly) is about learning how to communicate more effectively with yourself and with others. It’s about understanding how our minds work, what to say, how to say and when to say things, and when to shut up. Knowing which buttons to press to get desired reactions. It’s about improving your relationships with others, getting more satisfaction in your life and being a happier person people feel attracted to. And that’s what we all want, isn’t it?”
