Introduction to Neuro Linguistic programming (NLP)
Just imagine what you would do if your bread machine arrived without instructions.
That of course, pales in comparison to the immense complexity of our brains (unimaginably more bake cycles).
Each of us happen to possess in our skulls, the most sophisticated computers ever conceived of and no one thought to provide instructions. No wonder changing how we do the simplest task, often meets with failure.
If you climbed behind the wheel of a car for the very first time and had no instructions to guide you, how far do you think you’d get before driving into a ditch or up a telephone pole.
So, how do NLPer’s create the knowledge necessary to learn how to operate our own minds?
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) studies the structure of how humans think and experience the world. Obviously, the structure of something so subjective does not lend itself to precise, statistical formulae but instead leads to models of how these things work. From these models, techniques for quickly and effectively changing thoughts, behaviors and beliefs that limit you have been developed.
NLP is how we use the basic language of our mind consistently achieve the results we want in life

NLP definitions
1. An attitude and methodology that leaves behind a trail of techniques
2. The study of subjective experience
3. The realization that our words don’t describe the world we live in, but determine it.

History of Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP)

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP)is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California, United States in the 1970s. NLP has since been overwhelmingly discredited scientifically, but continues to be marketed by some hypnotherapists and by some companies that organize seminars and workshops on management training for businesses.
NLP’s creators claim there is a connection between neurological processes (Neuro-), language (linguistic) and behavioral patterns learned through experience (programming), and that these can be changed to achieve specific goals in life. Bandler and Grinder also claim that NLP methodology can “model” the skills of exceptional people, allowing anyone to acquire those skills. They claim as well that, often in a single session, NLP can treat problems such as phobias, depression, tic disorders, psychosomatic illnesses, near-sightedness, allergy, common cold, and learning disorders.
There is no scientific evidence supporting the claims made by NLP advocates and it has been discredited as a pseudoscience by experts. Scientific reviews state that NLP is based on outdated metaphors of how the brain works that are inconsistent with current neurological theory and contain numerous factual errors. Reviews also found that all of the supportive research on NLP contained significant methodological flaws and that there were three times as many studies of a much higher quality that failed to reproduce the “extraordinary claims” made by Bandler, Grinder, and other NLP practitioners. Even so, NLP has been adopted by some hypnotherapists and also by companies that run seminars marketed as leadership training to businesses and government agencies.



“Renovate Your Mind” which is the best way I can describe the effects of NLP.

You can renovate your mindset, intelligence, memory, senses, appearance, and your communication skills. You can gain the ability to improve, enhance or modify ANY aspect of yourself or someone else.

NLP can be an extremely powerful tool, when used correctly. I have seen many people using NLP techniques to talk to stranger and make them in own fold.

flat! NLP can be used on yourself as well as other people, with hundreds of opportunities to do so occurring every day.

NLP, or Neuro-linguistic programming, is the most power approach toward communication, change, and excellent performance. It has been widely applied, with often astonishing results, in diverse field. NLP is a Psychological technique that effectively communicates with the listener’s subconscious or unconscious mind. In modern-day terms, brain-hax.

The end result is that you can communicate / argue / negotiate / persuade people (or yourself) much more effectively. Astoundingly, significantly, suspiciously more effectively!

Definition of term NLP ( The study of Human Excellence)

Neuro: Pertaining the neurons, or nerves, the brain’s communication tool

Linguistic: Pertaining to language

Programming: To configure or set the way something works

One of the most profound ideas of NLP is that, if one person can do something, it should be possible to find out what they’re doing and replicate it, NLP modeling is a unique approach for identifying and replicating the unconscious skills of excellent performers.

Principles of NLP

  1. What do you want? Above is one of the most powerful NLP question. Nervous system of human being is based on goal-seeking and it tends to get what you focus on. Well define and absolute outcome are an important tool for ensuring that you get more of what you want in your life.
  2. The MAP is not the territory: Get the attention of the unconscious mind (Rapport), rapport is the process of getting the attention and trust of the unconscious mind. To gain attention you must start the person you wish to influence i.e. present state (you should be in charge of the process).
  3. Behavioral Flexibility: Change what you are doing in order to get a different result. “Intelligence is the ability to have a fixed goal and be flexible about how you achieve it.” Adjust what you’re doing accordingly “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result.” When you notice that you are not getting what you want, you need the flexible.
  4. Sensory Acuity: know whether you’re getting hat you want? once you know where you want to go, you need to be able to notice ( using your five sense) whether or not you are going there. sensory acuity refers to the ability to notice the signs that you are moving in the right direction.

NLP Techniques and Definitions

NLP consists of a set of powerful techniques to effect change. Some of these techniques are as follows, with their definitions


The process of associating an internal response with some external trigger so that the response may be

Quickly, and sometimes covertly, reassessed by activating the trigger.


These may be naturally occurring or set up deliberately. They may be established in all representational Systems and serve to control both positive and negative internal states.

Stacking anchors

The process of associating a series of events with one specific anchor so as to strengthen the intensity of the subject’s response to a specific anchor.

Collapsing anchors

A process of neutralizing negative states by triggering two incompatible responses at the same time.

Chaining anchors

A process by which a series of anchors is created to lead from an undesired state through a series of

Intermediate states to a desired state.

Associated state

Being fully present in a state so as to experience the kinesthetic of it. For past states this involves being in the experience looking from the perspective of the person’s own eyes.

Dissociated state

Recreating a past experience from the perspective of an onlooker or observer. This means the person does not re-experience the original emotion but instead experiences the emotions of an observer.

Double kinesthetic dissociation

The process of watching yourself watching a film of a past experience. This is used in cases of phobias and extreme psychic trauma.


The process of reading a subject’s internal responses in an ongoing interaction by pairing them with

Observable behavioral cues.

Change history

A process of guiding a subject to re-experience a series of past situations by the use of selective anchoring. Resource states are developed for each situation and are installed in the subject’s repertoire in order to change the significance of the past events.


The process of establishing a relationship with a subject that is characterized by harmony,

Understanding and mutual confidence. This is done by reducing to a minimum the perceived difference at the unconscious level.


A process used to separate a problematic behavior from the positive intention to the internal part responsible for that behavior. New choices of behavior are established that maintain the positive intent but don’t have the problematic by-products.


A set of explicit mental and behavioral steps used to achieve a specific outcome. This is represented by a specific sequence of representational systems used to carry out the specific steps.


The sub-classification of external experience. The decomposing into its components of a picture, sound or feeling.
