Description

Excerpt from Psychological Monographs, Vol. 53: Some Conditions of Suggestion and Suggestibility; A Study of Certain Attitudinal and Situational Factors Influencing the Process of Suggestion An adequate description of the conditions of suggestion should include the conditions resulting in suggestion and the conditions which will fail to result in suggestion. It is evident in the light of our present knowledge that the acceptance of suggestion is no unqualifiable prediction. Some sugges tions are accepted and acted upon, others are not. The problem thus becomes: under what conditions are suggestions accepted and under what conditions are they not? Suggestion qua suggestion is no inevitable phe nomenon. The search thus becomes one for additional conditions of sugges tibility and non - suggestibility. This search is the object of the present investigation. Can such conditions be described, and is it possible to subsume under a few general principles the varieties of theory and experi mental results, in terms which might be said to describe the conditions of suggestion? Let us examine first the history of the problem, review its experimental literature and summarize its present status. This will provide a compre hensive basis for a statement of our problem and hypotheses. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
