It depends entirely on what you consider to be successful husbandry and response. Whatever method applied will always achieve an outcome; you need to know what you are going for in keeping this creature and proceed accordingly. I keep primarily Indicus-Complex spp., and have some animals that eat right out of my hands (no hemostats required, though as a disclaimer I do not recommend this to most keepers) whom are of wild origins and have never been handled extensively save initial transportation. They trust me, and that did not happen by accident. Personally, I'd rather let my Varanids decide for themselves that they like me rather than subdue them into complacent acceptance of my existence. Ionides tame rather easily with positive reinforcement, so give it some time and forego the socks in the meantime.
