NLP Indirect Elicitation Patterns

Indirect Elicitation Patterns are very useful in getting specific responses indirectly, without asking for them. Again, in the Meta Model we scope for information that is sent to us as the listener to be as complete as possible. The Milton Model is the opposite of it. In other words we as an NLP Practitioner or Master Practitioner plan our outcome very well. Where Direct Elicitation can result in much resitance or authority, in NLP Indirect Elicitation Patterns help you soften the communication. Using them results in a desired response indirectly. In other words, you are asking for an outcome without making it obvious that you are asking and there is a desired outcome. Fun, right?

NLP Embedded Questions

I am curious to know what you would like to learn from reading this blogpost. In NLP Embedded Questions are a powerful way to ask questions covertly, get a response and the listener not realizing that the question was not asked directly. So at this moment I am wondering what you want to learn next? Basically this technique comes down on the fact that the listener or receiver of this message does not refuse the question, because it is embedded within a statement about the speaker’s curiosity. This is very easy to learn theory about Indirect Elicitation Patterns and in specific about Embedded Questions. I am wondering how much you are going to exercise this technique, now.

NLP Punctuation Ambiguity

In NLP Punctuation Ambiguity or Siamese Sentences is part of the Milton Model. Punctuation Ambiguity is a bit harder to detect than the previous sets in the Indirect Elicitation Patterns. Punctuation ambiguity is identified as where you use a sequence of words which is the result of an overlap of two well-formed Surface Structures sentences sharing a word or phrase. In other words, take two sentences, one that ends with the same word as the second sentence begins. For example sentence one: “I want you to notice your hand” and sentence two: “Hand me the glass”. Now comes the trick. Make sentence one and two as one sentence and remove the “Hand” from the second sentence. You will get “I want you to notice your hand me the glass”. Simple right?!

NLP Conversational Postulates

Did someone ever asked you something like “Do you know what time it is.”? And you told them the exact time? Welcome to NLP Conversational Postulates. The most logical answer to this question is either Yes or No. Conversational Postulates typically elicit a response, rather than a literal answer. So, can you give me some more examples of Conversational Postulates now? I think you can. It depends rather now on if you provide a response or a literal answer. Are you reading this?

NLP Embedded Commands

In NLP Embedded Commands are used rather than giving direct instructions, the NLP Practitioner embeds the directives within a larger sentence structure. You can start now to imagine the power of Embedded Commands, especially now you can begin to relax and learn even more. Embedded commands often are used in a larger sentence structure to deliver them more smoothly and gracefully. The listener will not consciously relaize the directives that have been given to him or her.

NLP Negative Commands

Do not think you are going to learn more in this great blogpost about NLP Negative Commands. Negative Commands are commands given in negative form. The positive instruction is generally what is responded to. A little example for starters to warm up. “Don’t think of pink elephants.” In this example you have to think about the color pink or an elephant, or both to understand what is being told. The explanation of what is happening here is fairly simple. Negation does not exist in the primary experience of sights, sounds and feelings.

NLP Ambiguities

In NLP Ambiguities come in a variety of flavors. Phonological Ambiguity, Syntactic Ambiguity, Scope Ambiguity and Punctuation Ambiguity. Ambiguity or vague usage of language, literally means lack of specificity. You can utilize these patterns by taking advantage of everything in the listeners experience. You can use both internal and external environments to support the intention of the speaker. While working with a client, the door to your working room mistakenly opens. Instead of getting frustrated and annoyed, you start to utilize your environment.

NLP Analogue Marking

In NLP Analogue Marking doesn’t have to do much with language patterns, but the more how you use your voice. In our experience it doesn’t hurt to become fully in control of your voice as it makes you bring our message to your client more easy and more smooth. A lot of the techniques we explained in previous blogposts are even more powerful when you apply Analogue Marking. Analogue Marking means that you set the directive apart from the rest or the sentence with some non-verbal analogue behavior.

NLP Scope Ambiguity

In NLP Scope Ambiguity is a part of the Milton Model. Scope Ambiguity is simple to recognise. Take the following example “They went with the charming men and women”. Were there only charming men? Were the men and women charming? In other words, the scope of reference in this example sentence is not clear at all. It provides room for interpretation. And as a lot of the Indirect Elicitation Paterns do, please do note that this particular part, the Scope Ambiguty, has the same effect. The brain needs to think and relate to the environment to place all the information in the right context. In other words, we distract the brain a little bit to allow us to bring in other information. How easy can your life be as an NLP Practitioner?
