Stanford ScaleEdit

File:Hilgardmug 160.jpg
The Stanford Scale was developed Andre M. Weitzenhoffer and Ernest R. Hilgard in 1959 as a measure of hypnotic susceptibility[1][2].

The Scale consists of three Forms: A, B, and C. Similar to the Harvard Group Scale, each Form consists of 12 items of progressive difficulty and usually takes fifty minutes to complete. Each form consists of motor and cognitive tasks but vary in their respective intended purpose. The administrator scores each form individually.


They also developed the Stanford Profile Scales of Hypnotic Susceptibility, Forms I and II [3] which are the most widely-referenced research tools in the field of hypnosis.
