Abstract Tested 36 susceptible and 36 insusceptible Ss to examine the effect of markedly contrasting styles of interpersonal orientation of the hypnotist on their responsiveness. Ss were allocated to a 2 * 2 factorial design that varied group identity (real or simulating) and nature of test setting (contractual or collaborative). The collaborative setting attempted to promote much franker and more open communication between S and hypnotist than the traditional contractual setting. Results indicate that context of testing had an appreciable effect on Ss' attitudes toward the hypnotic situation, but little effect on their objective performance on routine test items. Hypnotic Ss were more willing than role-playing Ss to engage in dialogue with the hypnotist. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
