Question

The social cognitive theory of hypnosis suggests that ________. 

a) hypnosis is essentially an associated state of consciousness.

b) no one can actually be hypnotized.

c) people can hypnotize themselves if they try hard enough.

d) people in hypnotic states are performing the social role of a hypnotized person.

Answer

I believe the answer is:  people in hypnotic states are performing the social role of a hypnotized person.

Social cognitive theory believe that the behaviours that displayed by an individual would be massively influenced by that individual’s observation to the action of other people in his/her surrounding. \

If this theory is used to observe hypnotized person, we can assume that the people in hypnotic state is only behaving based on the expectation of their surrounding.
