Can you hypnotize someone while chatting on the INTERNET?

Yes. It’s not as effective as an audio file or an in-person induction. But it is possible. It works the same as reading a book. As you read the words, you visualize in your mind what the hypnotist is describing. The more vividly you visualize this, the deeper the trance.

The basic problem with this type of induction is the lack of feedback between hypnotist and subject. The hypnotist is unable to see the subject’s face. So they’re forced to guess at how well the subject is responding. There is also a risk of getting disconnected without knowing it, leaving the hypnotist, the subject, or both waiting for a response that will never come.
