The visual perception of area of geometrical figures was compared for subjects of high and low hypnotizability in experiments with direct comparison of two different geometrical figures. The Stanford Hypnotic Susceptibility Scale (Form C) was used to assess subjects' hypnotizability. No differences between 17 highly hypnotizable and 10 low hypnotizable subjects were found. Present results were also compared with those previously obtained for subjects of unknown hypnotizability. The model based on the Image Function Theory proposed earlier to explain the errors in area estimation committed by subjects of unknown hypnotizability was confirmed as a general rule.

Abstract

The visual perception of area of geometrical figures was compared for subjects of high and low hypnotizability in experiments with direct comparison of two different geometrical figures. The Stanford Hypnotic Susceptibility Scale (Form C) was used to assess subjects' hypnotizability. No differences between 17 highly hypnotizable and 10 low hypnotizable subjects were found. Present results were also compared with those previously obtained for subjects of unknown hypnotizability. The model based on the Image Function Theory proposed earlier to explain the errors in area estimation committed by subjects of unknown hypnotizability was confirmed as a general rule.
