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.
