hypno kink, complaining
Like, to be clear, you can do hypnosis that way. If there's enough context, like hopeful subjects hanging out somewhere that they might get hypnotised, or talking to someone they've worked with before, you can do hypnosis on vibes alone. If a hypnotist is exactly the kind of person someone wants to go under for, just being that person can work
But you gotta know your audience
It's not a sure thing, like, it requires so much enthusiasm and work from the subject that you really can't expect it to work. Moreso for people who you don't have rapport with, or people who are beginners. Plus, you have to actually be that kind of attractive to someone, which, like, being an awful outspoken conservative has a tendency to prevent, Scott
This kind of approach as like, a default setting is just unpleasant to be subjected to, imo. It typically relies on maintaining an aesthetic that can't be disrupted by anything, especially the acknowledgement that it might not work, which is, like... idk. I feel like if, as a hypnotist, you aren't prepared to communicate in the event of a failed attempt, then you're really not giving your subject room to do anything other than conform or be disappointing / disappointed.
