We all like to think of ourselves as good communicators. If you want to take this up a notch then understanding and applying the NLP Communication Model is a must.
You engage with other people all day, every day and you think that you can get your point across well. Whilst fully understanding the other person because you are intelligent and intuitive.
Nothing could be further from the truth!
The NLP communication model spells out how human beings understand reality. How you perceive, process and filter the raw data that is true reality through your five senses. Then you apply a meaning to this data and out of that you then construct your understanding of reality.
And trust me what you believe to be reality will be a weak, flawed and at times a pure constructed illusion.
The NLP Communication Model teaches us that our neurology is advanced but not so advanced to process true reality.
Science has postulated for many years, that reality is made up of millions of bits of information. These millions of bits of informations bombard our five senses every waking second.
Now that is a lot of data to process every single second. Truth is our neurology can not coupe with that deluge. All we can process every second is 134 bits out of the 2 million that are available. (see Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s and the book Flow)
Thats only 0.000067% of all the available data every second. That means there are a whole heap of other possibilities that are being left out of your cognitive awareness.
Now you will start to see the importance of the NLP Communication model. In being able to recognise an illusion that has no real sensory based evidence to support it! You will be less likely to misunderstand based on being emotionally triggered.
The raw data of reality has no meaning! It is just parcels of Visual, auditory, kinaesthetic, gustatory and olfactory data.
You take in these external experiences through your 5 senses. Then you filter it through your values, beliefs and your meta programs. You will then add in your up bringing along with every experience you have ever had. Your societal values level belief structure and your attitude also play their part.
Realising that all the time, these filters are deleting, distorting and generalising the data. Getting rid of whats not a fit for our preconceived ideas.
And then the icing on the cake is when you use your 6th sense which is awareness. The structure of the meaning you apply comes from your unique flavour of awareness. Then in the blinking of an eye you claim to know exactly what has happened and what it all means.
Oh and you can times this process by ten if your are unconsciously trigger into a negative emotional state.
Think about all the unwarranted and inappropriate behaviour you will have either seen or done. When people are triggered the ability to skew reality goes into overdrive.
The NLP Communication Model teaches you that nothing is real. Or there is a reality but your neurology cannot process or perceive it accurately. So effectively to you and I nothing is real.
Which is great when you have things in your reality that you don’t like. It gives you scope to step back and take a moment to work out what else it could all mean.
This principle was explained in one sentence by Gandhi. “Be the change that you want to see in the world” When you create a change you allow your perceptions to change. When your perceptions change then like magic the world around you will change.
All that is happening is you are choosing another 134 bits of data every second. The good stuff is aways there you just need to decide to grab onto that.
