A Quest?on of Log?c




This is a chapter from my book THE POWER TO USE NLP #1 (out soon).
Feel free to "chat" with me about it.

A QUEST?ON OF LOG?C ?
	This chapter offers a series of statements indicating the logical level 
from which the speaker may be operating, albeit unconsciously.
I then suggest some meta-model responses from each of the representational 
systems.  The meta-model, which I also call LINGUISTIC ICEBERGS, enables you 
to explore beneath the surface structure of spoken words to possible deletions, 
distortions or generalisations. These three processes are normal human 
activities,  necessary processes ensuring that our senses are not overwhelmed or 
over stimulated by excessive input. If we failed to exclude certain details, or 
did not make generalisations, life would be very difficult. The brain quickly 
familiarises itself to the environment and maintains a watchful eye,  a listening 
ear, and an incredibly sensitive epidermis, so that it can assess potential threat 
by noticing what differs from the norm.
	The italicised questions or statements contain all three modes of seeing, 
hearing and feeling.
	Developing this level of listening along with the flexibility to respond, to 
investigate appropriately and creatively in any given context or environment 
will certainly make you a better communicator.  This can result in  patterns and 
processes that create more efficient behaviours. Developing these  skills you 
will increase your ability to move yourself and others toward mutually desired 
outcomes and more elegant solutions.
	This can create greater awareness and resourcefulness in the people you 
relate to - and in your own dealings with them.  You  may become more aware 
of subtle shifts in your  beliefs about peoples capabilities and worth. This in 
turn may reinforce and facilitate value based, principled transactions and life 
enhancing relationships. 


	This will inevitably have an effect on your identity,  your sense of self. 
Whether you believe in Higher Selves, Spirituality, Guardian Angels, God or 
nothing, you may discover aspects of relationships that are interesting and 
illuminating and able to transcend mere ego.
The format is as follows
LOGICAL LEVELS
	Definition of logical level.
	STATEMENT RELATED TO THE SPECIFIC LOGICAL LEVEL.
Questions (with representational predicates) about the above statement.
A question that contains all three Rep Systems.

ENVIRONMENT
This is where and when whatevers going on goes on! Environment 
encompasses all the other logical levels setting boundaries or opening 
doors of opportunity.
	IVE GOT TO GET OUT OF THIS PLACE
	IVE GOT TO MOVE INTO THAT PLACE
How do you imagine things will change if you are in a different place?
What do you say to yourself about moving to another location?
How would you feel if you lived (worked / loved / interacted) elsewhere? 
Can you imagine what youd talk about if you felt better about this place?
BEHAVIOUR
This is what we do to maintain or adjust our environment. Our actions 
and reactions in response to the inhibitions or invitations created by the 
environment.
	I NEED TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT
How would you feel if you did something else?
What would people say if you behaved differently?
How would things look different if you acted different?
	ILL KEEP DOING THE SAME THING
What do you see changing if you dont?
What do you tell yourself about change?  
Can you get a handle on continuing with that habit?
Explain what sensations youd get from a different perspective.



CAPABILITIES
These are the skills we bring to bear when we take or avoid actions or 
reactions.
	ID LIKE TO CHANGE BUT I DONT KNOW HOW
What would you need to see in order to learn?
How can I best describe it to you?
What feelings help or hinder you?
How would you feel if I demonstrated instead of describing it to you?
BELIEFS
What we perceive or consider to be the way the world works. Our 
perception of the Universe and its inhabitants and out relationship to 
them.
	I DONT BELIEVE IT WILL WORK
Will you believe it if I can draw a word picture?
What can I tell you to convince you?
Do you sense there might be some truth in it?
Would you get a better handle on it if I illustrated my lecture?
VALUES
What we think should and shouldnt (as opposed to is or isnt). What we 
say must happen or must not happen or exist. The rules of the game.
	PEOPLE SHOULD TREAT EACH OTHER WITH RESPECT
Do you glimpse people not doing that?
Do you hear disrespectful in their voices?
What sensations do you experience when they dont?
Would you feel different if their tone didnt suggest they were taking the moral 
high ground?




IDENTITY
Who we experience and expect ourselves to be. The sense of Self, the ego.
	IM NOT THE SORT OF THE PERSON WHO DOES THAT
Could you visualise becoming like that?
Whats the gossip about people like that?
Whats your gut reaction to that sort of person?
If you saw yourself in that light, might you describe yourself differently?
RELATIONSHIP
How we express our sense of Self with other people, with the world, with 
our environment.
	I DONT GET ON WITH PEOPLE
How do you behold people when you do get on with them?
Do you talk about what you dont like?
What do they feel about making contact with them?
Can you picture yourself feeling more friendly if they talked to you in a 
different way?
SPIRITUALITY
Beliefs or fantasies about life beyond life, or the spirit with which we 
approach our endeavours, our relationships, our world, our transactions.
	I DONT THINK THERES ANYTHING AFTER THIS LIFE
Could you imagine such a thing?
Can we debate the transmigration of the soul?
Do you have any emotions about life before death?
Lets try to make contact with  dear departed Uncle Fred and see  whether he 
has anything to say about it.
	This a framework, dont memorise it and dont forget it, above all, be 
creative with it.
