8 – a. Perceptual Flexibility – Perceptual Position Quiz

Jerry December 26, 2020

There are certainly times when the same old response is appropriate. However, having more choices in a dynamic world is generally desirable, and very often highly prized.

In NLP we presuppose that the meaning of our communication is the response we get. More often than not the intention and what we say will be understood somewhat differently than we intended it. So we often need multiple ways of saying or doing something in order to get a response that we want.

In NLP it is critical that we operate out of the other person’s model the world. That model of the world is only made known to us in bits and pieces as we are able to discern how the other’s world is represented in their model. Our understanding of another person’s model improves with experience with the person.

The person’s model of the world shifts over time, as do the moods and states of the person we are working with. What works one day may not work the next. So because NLP is results-oriented, we need to be able to quickly shift our approach to match the current model moods and states of the person we are working with.

Just like a good stretch every morning helps your body to stay toned and fit, stretching your flexibility and responses are useful skill to have in everyday life, but especially in NLP Coaching work when going for a particular outcome. 

Please take the quiz: Perceptual Positions – Point of View below before the next session begins.

It is important that your answer is the most honest and genuine one that, on average, would apply most often (with all the exceptions, including different contexts), not the ‘politically correct’ choice or the one you would pick in order to look good to someone else (the answers are for your insights only.) We will explore these further in class.
