I was wondering if anyone

I was wondering if anyone has brought up hypnosis at all.  I originally thought that during hypnosis, individuals are unaware of their behavior. However, I was surprised to read in an article that individuals are "hyperattentive".  If this is true, then why are people so willing to follow commands when hypnotized?  What happens to the the I-function?  If anyone can enlighten me about aspects of hypnosis, I would greatly appreciate it.
