No, it will not work.
How do I know? Well, it has nothing to do with the spectator. It has everything to do with you. For as long as you believe this:
i dont want to test it until i know for sure so i dont look like a fool.
This sliver of insecurity will destroy your ability to hypnotize another person. When you hold out your hand to shake someone else's hand, do you feel any insecurity? Are you the least bit nervous about whether or not they will meet your hand with theirs?
No. Why? Because shaking hands is hypnosis. It is automatic behavior that has been programmed into the mind.
You want to give your suggestions with the same level of confidence as you have when you extend your hand for a handshake. Until you do, you will likely fail, in the same way that a person probably wouldn't shake your hand if you extended yours nervously.
YOUR HESITATIONS WILL BECOME THEIR RESTRAINTS.
YOUR BELIEFS WILL BECOME THEIR BEHAVIORS.
