Abstract 10 Ss who were assessed on the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility as being highly susceptible to hypnosis were shown videotaped versions of their previous hypnotic sessions in the presence of an independent inquirer who attempted to foster Ss' personal comments on their own experiences. A special method of inquiry called the "experiential analysis technique" was constructed to study Ss' recall, which was examined for fantasy involvement, rapport, and individual modes of cognition. Data from the application of the method indicate the idiosyncratic ways in which Ss interpret routine suggestions, the degree to which they become personally involved with the hypnotist, and 3 distinct modes of cognizing, which were labeled "concentrative-cooperative," "cognitive-independent," and "cognitive-constructive."
