  24. 24. Language (Words)<br />Last month we talked about “Love” which was a timely topic for February<br />Strategies<br />Frames<br />Rituals<br />Convenient ways to express complex ideas<br />
  25. 25. The problem with language (words)<br />How many of you remember the “Meta-Model?”<br />Hint:Our topic in December was “Asking powerful questions.”<br />How many of you found it difficult to get your significant other to discuss their love strategy or frame last month?<br />
  26. 26. Decisions (Generalizations)<br />What is your best friends cell phone number?<br />
  27. 27. Opening a Door<br />Results<br />Adults: “The Door is Locked.”<br />Young Children: “This door is funny it opens on the wrong <br /> side.”<br />
  28. 28. Decisions are Communication?<br />Decisions here are our mental short cuts, like opening a door or finding our friend’s number<br />When we are told about something that is routine or familiar our brain processes it according to these generalizations or automatic decisions<br />

  32. 32. Movie Discussion<br />Have you ever watched the exact same movie with a friend but had a very different reaction?<br />What was the movie?<br />What were the reactions you and your friend had?<br />Why did you react that way? Why do you think they reacted that way?<br />
  33. 33. Internal Representations and Behaviors<br />Think about a time you were truly happy…<br />Smile and feel sad<br />Think about a person who you find to be truly annoying and dislike having to talk to them<br />
  34. 34. Conclusion<br />Based on our previous experiences we filter information about the world around us<br />In psychology seeing the world around us and filtering it in our own way is called projection<br />(The map is not the territory, right?)<br />Because our perceptions define our reality we often reinforce that our perception is the “right” perception<br />The first step is to identify our filters then we can begin to modify or remove the ones that are not helpful for us<br />
  35. 35. What about Step 1 & 4???<br />We will save these for later sessions including:<br />Building rapport for networking<br />“Mind reading”<br />More of the meta-model (more powerful questions)<br />The Milton Model (conversational hypnosis by being vague)<br />Any topics you are interested in hearing?<br />
