Question Utilization and Resistance

Mr. Lankton,

Dr. Erickson in one hand developed one after another different induction techniques including some that utilizes resistance and on the other hand asserted that the control lies within the person being hypnotized and one could be hypnotized only if one relinquishes control for some reason. He also discussed about confusion, unconscious control, illusion of free will and there are many situations where one feels out of control. I guess you will say one can feel one cannot control if one wants to feel that way. Do you think hypnosis can be resisted consciously where it is not attempted in a formal way and it is difficult to say where social interaction ends and hypnosis begins?
