Hypnotism: How does it work?

Okay, we have threads on Astrology & Telepathy. I'm starting a discussion on Hypnotism. 😕

Have you seen the famous hypnotist Paul McKenna performing on stage? All he does is say "Sleep" and viola! everyone is in deep sleep!

My question is - How does hypnotism work? The science behind hypnotism?

    It only works if you choose it too, thus it is more by power of suggestion and desiring it to work.

    Look into my eyes.....your feeling sleepy.....veeeeerrrrrrry sleeeeeeppppppyyyyy......when i click my fingers you will go into a trance and my voice will command you....*click*.
    Did it work on anyone? Am I good enough?
    Personally, I don't believe such a mass hypnotism is possible unless you secretly drug all the audience. I have doubts regarding hypnotism too, but would love to experience it first hand before coming to the final verdict. And as Gohm said, it only works if you choose it to.

    I have done Hypnosis shows in IIT delhi since 1994 every year for tech fest till 2006! I also have done this for Mood Indigo, IT Khanpur, BITS Pilani and IT BHU.

    It does work, its a science and every one can learn that.
