Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created in the 1970s. Its creators claim a connection between the neurological processes (“neuro”), language (“linguistic”) and behavioral patterns learned through experience (“programming”) and that these can be changed to achieve specific goals in life. Subjectivity: We experience the world subjectively thus we create subjective representations of our experience.
These subjective representation of experience are constituted in terms of five senses and language. Consciousness NLP is predicated on the notion that consciousness is bifurcated into a conscious component and a unconscious component. Those subjective representations that occur outside of an individual’s awareness comprise what is referred to as the “unconscious mind”.
Learning: NLP utilizes an imitative method of learning-termed modeling-that is claimed to be able to codify and reproduce an exemplar’s expertise in any domain of activity. An important part of the codification process is a description of the sequence of the sensory/linguistic representations of the subjective experience of the exemplar during execution of the expertise.
