The quality of response differs from one subject to another. The subject responds according to the way he interprets the suggestion and his willingness to accept it. Instructions can be suggested to the subject but whether they are accepted and acted upon depends on the ability of the operator to persuade the subject to agreement.
Although a hypnotic state will enable subjects to respond more effectively to suggestions, directions and instructions, it does not guarantee that they will do so. Suggestions must be presented in a manner that is meaningful and useful to the individual subjects, given their unique personalities, backgrounds, and needs, otherwise the subjects will be unable or unwilling to comply.
