Abstract Conducted 2 studies with undergraduates (N = 180) to analyze the behavioral effects of the variables "peer model behavior" and the "E's statement of his own expectancy" on the application of hypnosis. The 2 sources of social influence were established prior to induction of hypnosis. The sources were studied for their effects within the framework of a factorial design in which model and hypnotist expectancies about appropriate hypnotic response were manipulated simultaneously, in harmony and in opposition to each other. Exp I established the accuracy of the expectancy manipulations. Exp II analyzed the consequent effects of such manipulations and predicted a positive relationship between hypnotist-expectancy effect and Ss' susceptibility to hypnosis. As predicted, both variables effectively shaped Ss' hypnotic response. The level of susceptibility of Ss to hypnosis was significantly related to the strength of influence of the hypnotist's expressed expectancy. (20 ref.)
