Since there are no adequate definitions of trance and no means whereby one can test for that state, it appears more likely that hypnotism is a mutual agreement of the operator and the subject that the subject will cooperate in following suggestions and in acting out various suggested scenarios. As such, hypnotism may be a valuable tool in psychology. ..."

It certainly does all sound a bit woo-ish, I agree, Meta.

The only memories I have of the previous attempt are in regards to the hypnotists 'testing', for want of a better word, my hypnotic state. I was seated in a chair with my arms and hands relaxed and resting along the arms. I don't recall what he said in order 'to put me under', but shortly afterwards he asked me to raise the middle finger of my left hand. As far as I could tell, nothing happened, but he seemed satisfied, also he had said that my arms were too heavy for me to move, and I remember thinking 'I could move them if I wanted to' and 'Heck, I could open my eyes if I wanted to' but I didn't. That's all I remember.
