Under the term compliance, there is a willingness to engage in a particular situation. In hypnosis, it is important that the client brings a certain hypnotic compliance. But we also encounter compliance in everyday life, for example in social situations. Humans, as social beings, strive for a certain level of social desirability. This often leads to social pressure and a willingness to do things that one does not really want to do. This can be demonstrated particularly impressively in show hypnosis. On stage, most people are already willing to go beyond themselves in order to impress the audience. In brain physiological studies shows that under hypnosis objective and neuronal detectable changes take place, which we can not control and which are therefore not stimulable.
