Hypnotic susceptibility is a fundamental individual characteristic to consider in studies examining hypnosis. Although there is no existing normative data of group hypnotic susceptibility tests for the Mandarin-speaking Chinese population, the current study administered the Mandarin Chinese translation of the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, Form A (
A) to 242 subjects (137 females and 105 males). The results indicate that the normative properties-including the score distribution, item pass rates, and reliability-are comparable to 15 reference samples. In general, the Mandarin Chinese version of the
A can be used as a viable and reliable instrument for prescreening subjects' hypnotizability in the Mandarin Chinese-speaking population in Taiwan.
