Relationship between two different typesof imagery vividness questionaire items and three hypnotic susceptibility scale factorsInternational journal of clinical and experimental hypnosis (1983)
Abstract122 Ss were administered the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, Form A (HGSHSA) of Shor and E. Orne (1962), the Tellegen Absorption Scale (Tellegen & Atkinson, 1974), and 2 tape-recorded questionnaires on vividness of mental imagery. On 1 imagery questionnaire the items were impersonal, objective visual scenes (MIQ:VS), whereas on the other questionnaire the items involved discrete personal actions which elicited a combination of visual and kinesthetic imagery (MIQ:PA). Imagery vividness scores from both questionnaires correlated significantly with hypnotizability scores. M1Q:VS vividness scores were better than MIQ:PA vividness scores at predicting cognitive factor item scores of HGSHS:A, but not ideomotor or challenge factor items scores. Multiple correlations involving MIQ:VS vividness and the Tellegen Absorption Scale predicted cognitive factor scores better than ideomotor or challenge factor scores.
