The ideomotor effect refers to the influence of suggestion or expectation on involuntary and unconscious motor behavior.

The movement of pointers on Ouija boards, of a facilitator’s hands in facilitated communication, of hands and arms in applied kinesiology, and of some behaviors attributed to hypnotic suggestion, are due to ideomotor action.
