Future Pacing

The methods of neuro-linguistic programming are the techniques used to perform neuro-linguistic programming on a mind or person, and the methods used to teach those techniques to people. Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is based on the idea that with our senses we are only able to perceive a small part of the world. Our view of the world is filtered by our experience, beliefs, values, assumptions, and biological sensory systems. We act and feel based on our perception of the world rather than the real world. NLP teaches that language and behaviors (whether functional or dysfunctional) are highly structured, and that this structure can be 'modeled' or copied into a reproducible form. Using NLP a person can 'model' the more successful parts of their own behavior in order to reproduce it in areas where they are less successful or 'model' another person to effect belief and behavior changes to improve functioning. If someone excels in some activity, it can be learned how specifically they do it by observing certain important details of their behavior. NLP embodies several techniques, including hypnotic techniques, which proponents claim can effect changes in the way people think, learn and communicate. NLP is an eclectic field, often described as a 'toolbox' which has borrowed heavily from other fields in collating its presuppositions and techniques.

Famous quotes containing the words pacing and/or future:

    In the centre of his cage
    The pacing animal
    Surveys the jungle cove
    And slicks his slithering wiles
    To turn the venereal awl
    In the livid wound of love.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Although I’m trying very hard
    To sound unlike a birthday card,
    That’s all this is: so you may find it
    Full of all that lies behind it
    Admiration; friendship too;
    And hope that in the future you
    Reap ever richer revenue.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
