The third process in the NLP Meta Model is NLP generalisation, also directed to Semantic Ill-formedness. Where we draw global conclusions based on one, two or more experiences what we call the process of NLP generalisation.  At its best, NLP generalisation 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, generalisation is how we take a single event and make it into a lifetime of experience.

The last part of the Meta Model: Generalisation

Normally the conscious mind can only handle seven plus or minus two, items of information at any given time.  Of course, many people can not even handle this number.  Try this: Can you name more than seven products in a given product category: for example, cigarettes?  Most people will be able to name two, maybe three products in a category of low interest, and usually no more than nine in a category of high interest.  There is a reason for this.  If we did not actively delete information all the time, we would end up with excessive amounts of information coming in.  In fact, you may have even heard that psychologist say that if we were simultaneously aware of all of the sensory information that was coming in, we would go crazy.
