But that said, look at the echo chambers created by social media companies such as Facebook which is able to influence people on a massive scale.

There are lots of books on hypnosis, and masses of varying quality videos on youtube which will teach you a lot more on how it all works.

It would be interesting to find out how much hypnosis influences our lives. The group that has always amazed me is the runners who use hypnosis to increase their speed just a little bit more.
