The book is about something called NLP Neuro-linguistic programming.

See how impressive that sounds? That is what these motherfuckers do. Their aim is to fool people. One of his most annoying traits is how he insults psychology. Since incompetence is rewarded, new and better methods take much longer to become part of the mainstream in these fields. He talks about how by controlling the images in your mind, you can either learn to be a civil engineer or a psychotic.

His techniques are mostly moronic, and I can summarize them for you in a few lines.

Think of a memory. Now, change that image like making it brighter. You now associate happiness to that memory. Fuck you, Richard Bandler. I will admit that there might be something in thinking deeply about your experiences, and I am sure there is something interesting there, but merely thinking of image and changing its height or size or color.

I am an imaginative person, but I do not see feelings in clear pictures that I can manipulate.

The Meta-Model is a set of language pat- terns that can be used to specify experience more fully. In contrast, the Milton-Model provides the user with ways of being "artfully vague.

The Meta-Model pro- vides ways of recovering specific information that is deleted in any sentence; the Milton-Model provides ways of constructing sentences in which almost all specific information is deleted.

This requires the listener to fill in the deletions from her own unique internal experience. The Meta-Model can be conveniently divided into three chunks: A. Gathering Information, B. Semantic Ill-formedness, and C. Limits of the Speaker's Model.

Gathering Information As part of the Milton-Model, this chunk is called Deleting Informa- tion, and is the most useful of the three chunks for hypnotic purposes The four sub-categories follow. The test for a nominalization is "Can you put it in a wheelbarrow? Words like curiosity, hypno- sis, learnings, love, etc. They are used as nouns, but they are actually process words. Whenever a nominalization is used, much information is deleted If I say "Emily has a lot of know ledge," I've deleted what exactly she knows and how she knows it.

Nominalizations are very effective in hypnotic inductions because they allow the speaker to be vague and require the listener to search through her experience for the most appropriate meaning.

Milton Erickson's inductions are filled with them.

In the following example, the nominalizations are in italics: "I know that you have a certain difficulty in your life that you would like to bring to a satisfactory resolution.

By using nominalizations, the hypnotist can provide useful instructions without running the risk of saying something that runs counter to the listener's internal experience. No verb is completely specified, but verbs can be more or less specified. If a hypnotist uses relatively unspecified verbs, the listener is again forced to supply the meaning in order to understand the sentence. Words like do, fix, solve, move, change, wonder, think, sense, know, experience, understand, remember, become aware of, etc.

The sentence "I think this is true" is less specified than "I feel this is true. If I say "I want you to learn," I am using a very unspecified verb, since I'm not explaining how I want you to learn, or what specifically I want you to learn about what. This means that the noun being talked about is not specified. This category refers to sentences in which a major noun phrase is completely missing.

For example "I know you are curious.

Using Your Brain: For a Change

The listener does not know what he is supposedly curious about. Again, the listener can fill in the blanks with whatever is relevant in her experience. Semantic Ill-formedness 1 Causal Modeling, or Linkage. Using words that imply a cause- effect relationship between something that is occuring and some- thing the communicator wants to occur invites the listener to respond as if one thing did indeed "cause" the other. There are three kinds of linkage, with varying degrees of strength.

Words such as makes, causes, forces, and requires can be used here. The communicator will be most effective if she begins with the weakest form of linkage and gradually moves to a stronger form.

These forms of linkage work by implying or stating that what is occurring will cause something else to occur, and by making a gradual transition for the listener between what is occurring and some other experience.

Chapters I and II of this book contain more detailed descriptions of the use of causal modeling. Acting as if you know the internal experience of another person can be an effective tool to build the credibility of the hypnotist as long as the mind-reading makes use of generalized language patterns. If the mind-reading is too specific, the communi- cator runs the risk of saying something counter to the listener's experience, and thereby losing rapport. Evaluative statements in which the person making the evaluation is missing lost from the sentence are called Lost Performatives.

Statements using lost performatives can be an effective way of delivering presuppositions, as in the examples which follow. Its two categories can be used to limit the listener's model in ways that produce trance as well as other outcomes. Words such as all, every, always, never, nobody, etc. These words usually indicate overgeneralization.

Modal operators are words such as should, must, have to, can't, won't, etc. Additional Milton-Model Patterns In addition to the inverse Meta-Model patterns, the Milton-Model includes a number of other important language patterns.

The most important of these is the use of presuppositions. Presuppositions The way to determine what is presupposed and not open to question in a sentence is to negate the sentence and find out what is still true.

The simplest kind of presupposition is existence. In the sentence "Jack ate the food" it is presupposed that "Jack" and "food" exist. If you negate the sentence and say "No, Jack didn't eat the food" the fact that Jack and the food exist is still not questioned.

Presuppositions are the most powerful of the language patterns, when used by a communicator who presupposes what she doesn't want to have questioned. A general principle is to give the person lots of choices, and yet have all of the choices presuppose the response you want. Examples of specific kinds of presuppositions that are particularly useful in hypnotic work follow. There is a complete list of presupposi- tional forms in the appendix to Patterns I.

Such clauses begin with words such as before, after, during, as, since, prior, when, while, etc. Words such as another, first, second, third, etc. Words like know, aware, realize, notice, etc. The only question is if the listener is aware of whatever point you are making. Stacking many kinds of presuppositions in the same sentence makes them particularly powerful. The more that is presupposed, the more difficult it is for the listener to unravel the sentence and question any one presupposition.

Some of the presupposition sentences listed above contain several kinds of presuppositions, and those sentences will be more powerful. The following sentence is an example of the use of many presuppositions stacked together. Indirect Elicitation Patterns The next group of Milton-Model patterns are particularly useful in getting specific responses indirectly, without overtly asking for them.

Rather than giving instructions directly, the hypnotist can embed directives within a larger sentence structure. The above mes- sages are likely to have a much more graceful impact than if you were to give the directives alone: "Relax.

Embedded commands are particularly pow- erful when used with analogue marking. Analogue marking means that you set the directive apart from the rest of the sentence with some nonverbal analogue behavior. You could do this by raising the volume of your voice when delivering the directive, by pausing before and after the directive, by changing your voice tone, by gesturing with one of your hands, or by raising your eyebrows.

You can use any behavior that is perceptible to the other person to mark out a directive for special attention. The other person does not need to notice your marking consciously; in fact she will often respond more fully when your marking is perceived but not consciously recognized. Questions, like commands, can be embedded within a larger sentence structure.

The listener doesn't refuse to answer the question, because it is embedded within a statement about the speaker's curiosity. This provides a very gentle and graceful way to gather information. When a command is given in its negative form, the positive instruction is generally what is responded to.If you want someone to dissociate from a past problem, it will be helpful to use the simple past tense, "You had a problem.

For example, people who are good long-range planners tend to have the future close in front of them rather than off to the side. Sample questions that usually elicit this kind of processing include: "What color are your mother's eyes?

Yet people always get fooled. Although you'll do this in groups of three, this is an exercise where you can all go inside right now as I give you directions, and begin to discover your own submodality codings for time.
