Have you been hypnotised?

Have you been hypnotised? This is the question I put to a few volunteers after a recent show. One of the volunteers said they were a little, that they went in and out of hypnosis. Yet, their friends in the audience who witnessed the show said he was totally hypnotised. Similarly, another volunteer went through the show, responding to hypnotic suggestions and participating fully. After the show she was laughing and enjoying the whole experience.
Although, later on in the evening I heard her saying quite definitely to her friends that she was not hypnotised.
Where the confusion arises is what people define as hypnosis or being in an hypnotic state.
Many people think that hypnosis is like being asleep. If you mistakenly think that hypnosis is sleep then you could be forgiven for thinking that you were not hypnotised. Yet, hypnosis is not sleep. When I introduce the show I say that hypnosis is a very deep state of relaxation and concentration where your ability to focus on suggestions is enhanced.
Other definitions include:-
Merriam-Webster Dictionary - a trancelike state of altered consciousness that resembles sleep but is induced by a person whose suggestions are readily accepted by the subject
Erickson's definition of hypnosis as an "inner state of absorption" 
Others - bypassing the critical conscious function.

There you have it. When you are hypnotised you are in an altered state of consciousness, you maintain an awareness of the hypnotists voice and you have an increased ability to respond to suggestions.
