NLP Techniques: Communication is the response you get

Posted · 16 Comments

Presupposition of NLP #1  – “The meaning of your communication is the response you get!” – NLP techniques and attitudes…

NLP techniques employ several presuppositions to help you when communicating with yourself and others.

A presupposition is simply an assumption or in this case an attitude.

The NLP attitude “The meaning of the communication is the response you get” presupposes that you are the only person responsible for the results of your communications.

This is very helpful in applying NLP techniques as well as speaking in general.

This is because human beings are “meaning” making machines.

We all put meanings onto the words we say, as well as the words we hear.

Because one person is putting the meaning on what is being said and another person is putting the meaning on what is being heard, they don’t always line up.

“I didn’t mean that”

“I meant this…”

If you are looking for a specific result, but your meaning is lost, you can either argue about your intended meaning or change your approach and get the results you are looking for.

NLP techniques change old ways to new ways

This puts you in a position where you can be more deliberate in your communications.

This is just one of the NLP techniques that allows you to change your approach easily while interacting with others.

    Awesome information. I too have 3 cats and a dog and I do approach them differently then I do my peers, so……I am going to give it a try, not over the top, but with joy and enthusiasm.

    Thank you for sharing this with me… it is so true!!!…

    Peace and love

    Well in my case I always see that smiling helps a lot more with people. When I approach people I set myself as if I have known that person for a very long time and that I care genuinely care for them. There are some people who reject this but only a fraction do. The majority seem to be grateful. 🙂

      Yes exactly Adrian, but really my motivation is often because it feels good to come from my heart energy. Some people may not ever be able to access that fully in this lifetime, but I’m not going to be the one to deny myself that. Interestingly enough eventually you won’t even run into the people who reject it….it’s the whole “like attracts like” phenomenon. Peace to your heart!

    thank you for sharing this with us…it is true and in most cases it works! At least the positive attitude makes you feel better !

    • Jackey says:

      Bingo Marisa, and it’s more than a positive attitude because it’s from the heart. Enjoy the journey

    Great little insight that can dramatically improve our relationship with others and get ourselves understood more… thanks…Mary

    Thanks for this Jackey, I’m working on subconsciously remembering the presuppositions so this was a great video. Loved it! Peace and love to you 🙂

    • Jackey says:

      That’s wonderful Emilie. Of course moving any learning from conscious competence to unconscious competence is just a matter of conscious, deliberate action. You’ll have incorporated it and forgotten you did before you know it.

  7. Sarah says:

    When you talk of doing things from the heart, it speaks to me so much bcoz I want to do more of that. Can you share a video on how you do that?

    Hi Jackey, I’ll try this approach with my teenage daughter as we’ve been having a rocky relationship lately. Won’t be easy but I’m willing to take baby steps in this direction …

    • Jackey says:

      Hi Valerie, I can empathize completely with the challenges of teens. There was a time for awhile that I didn’t know what to be with my son. I can say for myself that there came a time where I had to trust that all of the values and love I shared in raising my kids would stick and then I let him find his way (with boundaries of course). Accepting that my mothering roll was over and finding a new way to be his mother was a BIG challenge for me. Somehow I found a way and I trust you will too!! Good luck and stay true to who you are.
