NLP Comparative Deletion

In NLP Comparative Deletion is any statement wherein a comparison is implied or given. But where one side of the comparison is omitted. When you accept a statement without understanding what’s behind it, you get stuck. Many “self esteem” issues come from deciding someone is better or more worthy at a general level rather than questioning the standard. “Better at what specifically?” If you don’t know what the standard is, how can you improve or disregard it?

NLP Lost Performative

In NLP Lost Performative is any value judgement or opinion. The source of the judgement or opinion is absent. So often beliefs and opinions pass down from person to person. Eventually to the point where the belief or opinion is no longer relevant to the person offering it or contextually appropriate. Lost performatives are when someone is talking about a personal belief, but presents it as though it was a universal truth. We then accept it as true without questioning it as we would if we heard it as someone’s personal opinion.

NLP Simple Deletion

What is NLP Simple Deletion

Any statement with missing of deficient information is a simple deletion. In NLP Simple deletions are where part of the meaning are left out or lost. You can notice them in sentences with it and that. Also when referring to missing descriptions (adjectives) – as in “Please give me the report.”, can be challenged with the question “Which report do you want, specifically”. Assuming that you know which category or thing the person means can get you into trouble. You think you know which report the boss wants when she says “Get me a report on it straight away”. Filling in her request blindly and delivering the report will result in a mind read, cause you have to fill in the information for “it”.  Mind reading fills in the deletion gaps.

NLP Complex Equivalence

What is NLP Complex Equivalence

In NLP Complex Equivalence is a conclusion. It bases itself on a static belief that gives some conditions. The outcome will always be the same. NLP suggests that this is a close view of potential possibilities. It provides opportunities for learning, growth and change. Often, complex equivalences are used in the process to chunk up (or generalising) inappropriately. To make summary judgments that do not apply as widely as a person is implying.

NLP Mind Reading

In NLP Mind Reading is when you assume you know what another person thinks or feels in a given situation. And I know what you are thinking right now! Because you never completely or fully do, even if you think they or feel is a close representation of what another person thinks or feels. So, by its definition, any assumption about another person’s feelings or thoughts is mind-reading.

NLP Nominalization

In NLP Nominalization is a verb, representing a process, which turned into a noun or an event or a concept. This is something that is more easily dealt with as a verb/process, than a noun/event. We naturally nominalize things all the time. It is a nominalization, “if you cannot put it in a wheelbarrow.” First of all, people nominalize things to try to get a handle on the, or to be more easily able to refer to them in simpler terms.

NLP Generalization

The third process in the NLP Meta Model is NLP generalization, also directed to Limits of the Speaker’s Model. Where we draw global conclusions based on one, two or more experiences what we call the process of NLP generalization.  At its best, NLP generalization are one of the ways that we learn. We take the information we have and draw broad conclusions about the world based on one or more experiences.  At its worst, generalization is how we take a single event and make it into a lifetime of experience.

NLP Distortion

In NLP Distortion is the second part of the NLP Meta Model. NLP Distortion, or Semantic Ill Formedness, occurs when we make shifts in our experience of sensory data by making misrepresentations of reality.  Let’s start with a well known story of NLP distortion in Eastern philosophy. It is the story of the rope and the snake.  A man walks along a road and sees what he believes to be a snake and yells, “SNAKE!”.  However, upon closer investigation he is relieved to discover that it really was only a piece of rope.
