A Modern Hypnosis Dictionary: The Letter V
  • Vaginismus - Involuntary contraction of the muscles of the vagina, usually of psychogenic causation. Responds well to hypnoanalysis and hypnosis.
  • Visualization - Literally, the process of creating images with the imagination. Very useful for goal achievement and artificial experience through rehearsal.
  • Visual Predilection - It became recognized in the psychological research of the 1950's that unconscious eye movements often gave evidence of categories of mental processes or neurological activities. Studies of these findings by Richard Bandler and John Grinder eventually developed to become part of the technical knowledge of Neuro - linguistic Programming (NLP). It was recognized that people generally fall into three groups of cognitive emphasis, visual - auditory - kinaesthetic. That is, some people's mental experience is largely visual, others auditory, others kinaesthetic. These different types may be recognized by observing eye cues in response to questions.
