methods of neuro-linguistic programmingare the specific techniques used to perform and teachneuro-linguistic programming, apseudosciencewhich teaches that people are only able to directly perceive a small part of the world using their conscious awareness, and that this view of the world is filtered by experience, beliefs, values, assumptions, and biological sensory systems. NLP argues that people act and feel based on their perception of the world and how they feel about that world they subjectively experience.

NLP teaches that language and behaviors (whether functional or dysfunctional) are highly structured, and that this structure can be modeled or copied into a reproducible form.3Unreliable fringe source?Using NLP a person can model the more successful parts of their own behavior in order to reproduce it in areas where they are less successful or model another person to effect belief and behavior changes to improve functioning. If someone excels in some activity, it can belearnedhow specifically they do it by observing certain important details of their behavior.4Unreliable fringe source?NLP embodies several techniques, including hypnotic techniques, which proponents claim can affect changes in the way people think, learn and communicate.5Unreliable fringe source?NLP is an eclectic field, often described as a toolbox which has borrowed heavily from other fields in collating its presuppositions and techniques.

NLP calls each individuals perception of the world their map.citation neededNLP teaches that our mind-bodyclarification needed(neuro) and what we say (language) all interact together to form our perceptions of the world, or maps (programming). Each persons map of the world determines feelings and behavior.citation neededTherefore, impoverished and unrealistic maps can restrict choices and result in problems.citation neededAs an approach to personal development or therapy it involves understanding that people create their own internal map or world, recognizing unhelpful or destructive patterns of thinking based on impoverished maps of the world, then modifying or replacing these patterns with more useful or helpful ones. There is also an emphasis on ways to change internal representations or maps of the world in order to increase behavioral flexibility.3Unreliable fringe source?4Unreliable fringe source?6Unreliable fringe source?

Modeling in NLP is the process of adopting the behaviors, language, strategies and beliefs of another person or exemplar in order to build a model of what they do…we know that our modeling has been successful when we can systematically get the same behavioural outcome as the person we have modeled.citation neededThe model is then reducedby whom?to a pattern that can be taught to others. The founders, Bandler and Grinder, started by analysing in detail and then searching for what made successfulpsychotherapistsdifferent from their peers. The patterns discovered were developed over time and adapted for general communication and effecting change.3Unreliable fringe source?The original models were:Milton Ericksonhypnotherapy),Virginia Satirfamily therapy), andFritz Perlsgestalt therapy). NLP modeling methods are designed to unconsciously assimilate the tacit knowledge to learn what the master is doing of which the master is not aware. As an approach to learning it can involve modeling exceptional people.7As Bandler and Grinder state the function of NLP modeling is to arrive at descriptions which are useful.3Unreliable fringe source?Einspruch & Forman 1985 state that when modeling another person the modeler suspends his or her own beliefs and adopts the structure of the physiology, language, strategies, and beliefs of the person being modeled. After the modeler is capable of behaviorally reproducing the patterns (of behavior, communication, and behavioral outcomes) of the one being modeled, a process occurs in which the modeler modifies and readopts his or her own belief system while also integrating the beliefs of the one who was modeled.8Modeling is not confined to therapy, but can be, and is, applied to a broad range of human learning. Another aspect of modeling is understanding the patterns of ones own behaviors in order to model the more successful parts of oneself.

TheMilton modelis a form of hypnotherapy based on the language patterns for hypnotic communication ofMilton Erickson, a noted hypnotherapist.9It has been described as a way of using language to induce and maintain trance in order to contact the hidden resources of our personality.10The Milton model has three primary aspects: Firstly, to assist in building and maintaining rapport with the client. Secondly, to overload and distract the conscious mind so thatunconscious communicationcan be cultivated. Thirdly, to allow for interpretation in the words offered to the client.11

The first aspect, buildingrapport, or empathy, is done to achieve better communication and responsiveness. NLP teaches mirroring or matching body language, posture, breathing, predicates and voice tonality. Rapport is an aspect of pacing or tuning into the client or learners world. Once pacing is established, the practitioner can lead by changing their behavior or perception so the other follows. OConnor & Seymour in Introducing NLP describe rapport as a harmonious dance, an extension of natural skills, but warn against mimicry.10Unreliable fringe source?Singer gives examples of the pantomime effect of mere mimicry by some practitioners which does not create rapport.12Unreliable fringe source?

The second aspect of the Milton model is that it uses ambiguity in language and non-verbal communication.citation neededThis might also be combined withvagueness, which arises when the boundaries of meaning are indistinct.clarification neededThe use of ambiguity and vagueness distracts the conscious mind as it tries to work out what is meant which gives theunconscious mindthe opportunity to prosper.clarification needed

The third aspect of the Milton model is that it is purposely vague and metaphoric for the purpose of accessing the unconscious mind. It is used to soften the meta model and make indirect suggestions.13Unreliable fringe source?A direct suggestion merely states what is wanted, for example, when you are in front of the audience you will not feel nervous. In contrast an indirect suggestion is less authoritative and leaves an opportunity for interpretation, for example, When you are in front of the audience, you might find yourself feeling ever more confident. This example follows the indirect method leaving both the specific time and level of self-confidence unspecified. It might be made even more indirect by saying, when you come to a decision to speak in public, you may find it appealing how your feelings have changed. The choice of speaking in front of the audience, the exact time and the likely responses to the whole process are framed but the imprecise language gives the client the opportunity to fill in the finer details.14

The notion that experience is processed by the sensory systems or representational systems, was incorporated into NLP from psychology and gestalt therapy shortly after its creation.3Unreliable fringe source?This teaches that people perceive the world through the senses and store the information from the senses in the mind. Memories are closely linked to sensory experience. When people are processing information they see images and hear sounds and voices and process this with internally created feelings. Some representations are within conscious awareness but information is largely processed at the unconscious level. When involved in any task, such as making conversation, describing a problem in therapy, reading a book, kicking a ball or riding a horse, their representational systems, consisting ofimagessoundsfeelings(and possiblysmellandtaste) are being activated at the same time.15improper synthesis?Moreover, the way representational systems are organised and the links between them impact on behavioral performance. Many NLP techniques rely on interrupting maladaptive patternsclarification neededand replacing them with more positive and creative thought patterns which will in turn impact on behavior.16

Originally, NLP taught that most people had an internal preferred representational system (PRS) and preferred to process information primarily in one sensory modality.citation neededThe practitioner could ascertain this from external cues such as the direction of eye movements, posture, breathing, voice tone and the use of sensory-based predicates. If a person repeatedly used predicates such as I canseeabrightfuture for myself, the words see and bright would be considered visual predicates. In contrast I can feel that we will be comfortable would be considered primarily kinesthetic because of the predicates feel and comfortable. These verbal cues could also be coupled with posture changes, skin color or breathing shifts. The theory was that the practitioner by matching and working within the preferred representational system could achieve better communication with the client and hence swifter and more effective results. Many trainings and standard works still teach PRS10whilst other proponentswho?have de-emphasized the existence and relevance of PRS and instead emphasize working within all representational systems.citation neededResponding directly to sensory experience requires an immediacy which respects the importance of context.citation neededGrinder has stated that a representational system diagnosis lasts about 30 seconds.citation needed

Although there is some research that supports the notion that eye movements can indicate visual and auditory (but not kinesthetic) components of thought in that moment,17the existence of a preferred representational system ascertainable from external cues (an important part of original NLP theory) was discounted by research in the 1980s.181920

Submodalities are the fine details of representational systems.clarification neededIn the late 1970s the developers of NLP started playing aroundtonewith the submodalities of representational systems involving the enhancement of visualisation techniques (common in sports psychology and meditation), by including other sensory systems.citation neededSubmodalities involve the relative size, location, brightness of internal images, the volume and direction of internal voices and sounds, and the location, texture, and movement of internally created sensations.21Submodalities and hypnosis became the focus of Richard Bandlers later work.citation neededA typical change process may involve manipulating the submodalities of internal representations.clarification neededFor example, someone may see their future as dark and cloudy with associated emotions, but would seek through NLP to perceive, and feel it, as light and clear. Other training exercises develop a persons ability to move around internal images, change the quality of sounds and find out how these affect the intensity of internal feelings or other submodalities. Although NLP did not discover submodalities, it appears that the proponents of NLP may have been the first to systematically use manipulation of submodalities for therapeutic or personal development purposes, particularly phobias, compulsions and addictions.22Unreliable fringe source?

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) uses the term meta-programs specifically to indicate general, pervasive and usually habitual patterns used by an individual across a wide range of situations.citation neededExamples of NLP meta-programs include the preference for overview or detail, the preference for where to place ones attention during conversation, habitual linguistic patterns andbody language, and so on.

Related concepts in other disciplines are known ascognitive stylesor thinking styles.

In NLP, the termprogramsis used as a synonym forstrategy, which are specific sequences of mental steps, mostly indicated by their representational activity (usingVAKOG), leading to a behavioral outcome. In the entry for the termstrategyin their Encyclopedia,Robert Dilts& Judith Delozier explicitly refer to the mind as computer metaphor: A strategy is like a program in a computer. It tells you what to do with the information you are getting, and like a computer program, you can use the same strategy to process a lot of different kinds of information. In their encyclopedia, Dilts and Delozier then define metaprograms as: [programs] which guide and direct other thought processes. Specifically they define common or typical patterns in the strategies or thinking styles of a particular individual, group or culture.

The book Words that Change Minds by Shelle Rose Charvet documents 13 distinct meta-programs categories affecting work-place motivation and performance, commonly known as the Language and Behaviour Profile or LAB Profile. It is based on the work of Rodger Bailey and Ross Steward who wanted to make meta-programs usable to people without NLP training.

Depending on the branch of NLP (different trainers or companies) the number and some of the content of the presuppositions may vary. Some of them are:

The meaning of a communication is the response that you get (not the one intended).

Life and Mind are Systemic Processes

Mind and body are parts of the same system and have influence over each other

All behaviour is geared towards adaptation

Behind every behavior is a positive intention

People are doing the best they can with the choices they have available

Choice is better than no choice (and flexibility is the way one gets choice)

Multiple descriptions are better than one

Behaviour is to be evaluated and appreciated or changed as appropriate in the context presented

People already have all the resources they need to succeed

The highest quality information you can have of someone is their (present) behaviour.

People are not their behaviour: accept people, change the behaviour (Also: Make distinction between behaviour and self).

Every outcome manifested is Feedback: there is no failure, only feedback

NLP teaches that we constantly make anchors (Classical Conditioning) between what we see, hear and feel and our emotional states. While in an emotional state if a person is exposed to a unique stimulus (sight, sound or touch) then a connection is made between the emotion and the unique stimulus. If the unique stimulus occurs again, the emotional state will then be triggered. NLP teaches that anchors (such as a particular touch associated with a memory or state) can be deliberately created and triggered to help people access resourceful or other target states.23Anchoring appears to have been imported into NLP from family therapy as part of the model ofVirginia Satir.24

A technique of asking a person toimagine doing something in the futureand monitoring their reactions. It is typically used to check that a change process has been successful; (i.e. by observing body language when the person imagines being in a difficult situation before and after an intervention). If thebody languageis the same then theinterventionhas not been successful. Future pacing can be used to embed change into the contexts of the future. It gives a person the experience of dealing positively with a situation before they get into that situation in reality. This is based onvisualizationwhere the mind is assumed not to be able to tell the difference between a scenario which is real and one which has been clearly visualized. The theory is that, having visualized positively, when the subject encounters the situation again in reality the visualized experience will serve as a model for how to behave, even though this experience was imagined. The mind cannot tell the difference between the visualization and reality so it accepts the visualization as reality andmakes the change.citation needed

The swish pattern is a process that is designed to disrupt a pattern of thought from one that used to lead to an unwanted behavior to one that leads to a desired behavior. This involves visualizing a cue which leads into the unwanted behavior, such as a smokers hand moving towards the face with a cigarette in it, and reprogramming the mind to switch to a visualization of the desired outcome, such as a healthy-looking person, energetic and fit. In addition to visualization, auditory sound effects are often imagined to enhance the experience.25Swish is one of the techniques that involves the manipulation of submodalities.

Another technique, reframing functions through changing the way you perceive an event and so changing the meaning. When the meaning changes, responses and behaviors will also change. Reframing with language allows you to see the world in a different way and this changes the meaning. Reframing is the basis of jokes, myths, legends, fairy tales and most creative ways of thinking.26There are examples in childrens literature.Pollyannawould playThe Glad Gamewhenever she felt down about life, to remind herself of the things that she could do, and not worry about the things she couldnt. Alice Mills also says that this occurs inHans Christian Andersens story where to the surprise of theugly duckling, the beautiful creatures welcome and accept him; gazing at his reflection, he sees that he too is a swan.27Reframing is common to a number of therapies and was not original to NLP.2:103107, 105

An example of reframing is found in the six-step reframe which involves distinguishing between an underlying intention and the consequent behaviors for the purpose of achieving the intention by different and more successful behaviors. It is based on the notion that there is a positive intention behind all behaviors, but that the behaviors themselves may be unwanted or counterproductive in other ways. NLP uses this staged process to identify the intention and create alternative choices to satisfy that intention.

In NLP this is one of a number of frames wherein the desired state is considered as to its achievability and effect if achieved. A positive outcome must be defined by the client for their own use, be within the clients power to achieve, retain the positive products of the unwanted behaviors and produce an outcome that is appropriate for all circumstances.22

This is a frame within which the desired outcome is checked against the consequences in the clients life and relationships from all angles.

Parts Integration is based on the idea that different aspects of ourselves are in conflict due to different perceptions and beliefs. Parts integration is the process of integrating the disparate aspects of the self by identifying and then negotiating with the separate parts to achieve resolution of internal conflict. Parts integration appears to be modeled on parts fromfamily therapyand has similarities toego-state therapyin psychoanalysis.

VK/D stands for Visual/Kinesthetic Dissociation. This is a technique designed to eliminate bad feelings associated with past events by re-running (like a film, sometimes in reverse) an associated memory in adissociatedstate. It combines elements of Eriksonian techniques, spatial sorting processes from Fritz Perls, reframing and changing history techniques.22

Largely derived from the ideas of Bateson and the techniques of Erikson, metaphor in NLP ranges from simple figures of speech to allegories and stories. It tends to be used in conjunction with the skills of the Milton model to create a story which operates on many levels with the intention of communicating with the unconscious and to find and challenge basic assumptions.1022

Sometimes calledstate control, is aneuro-linguistic programming(NLP) technique involving actively trying to control the emotional and mental state of an individual. One method to actively achieve state management anchoring where an individual associates a particular physicalstimulus. It is used as both a self-help method and a therapeutichypnotherapytechnique.citation needed

Covert hypnosis is purportedly a method of using language patterns to hypnotise or persuade other people. Referred to as sleight of mouth byRobert Dilts.28building off the phrasesleight of hand, which refers to a magicians skills in making things happen which appear impossible.
