NLP & Neuro Semantics PRESUPPOSITIONS
Do you know the premises or presuppositions that guide the NLP Communication model?

These presuppositions originated primarily from the professional communicators that Bandler and Grinder modeled, that is, from Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir, and Milton Erickson. Integrate this fully as your everyday frames of mind or attitude.
1) Our map is not the territory, it is but a symbolic representation of the territory.
2) We all respond according to our map of reality, not reality.
3) The meaning of communication is the response you get.
4) There is no “failure,” only feedback of information.
5) The element in any system with the most flexibility will exercise the greatest influence. (Law of Requisite Variety)
6) Mind-body are part of the same system (the neuro-linguistic system) and influence each other in a circular way.
7) People are not broken; they work perfectly well.
8) People have all the resources they need; they just need to access, strengthen, and sequence them.
9) We can model excellence, and even genius, if we break the tasks and skills into small enough chunks. If someone can do something, then it’s a human possibility.
10) It’s always better to have choice, than the lack of choice.
11) We add choices in NLP, we don’t take choices away; people tend to make the best choices available.
12) When calibrating to a person’s reality when there’s incongruity, the highest quality information will be behavioral.
13) Since memory and imagination use the same neurological circuits as external sensory awareness, they can powerfully influence our development.
14) People are more than their actions, words, emotions, roles, etc.
15) Behind every behavior is a positive intention.
16) Resistance indicates the lack of rapport.
17) There’s an abundance of personal resources, plenty for all.
18) It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.

NEURO-SEMANTIC PRESUPPOSITIONS
In Neuro-Semantics we also have been adding some of our premises to the list of presuppositions.
1) Energy flows where attention goes as directed by intention.
2) If you get serious, you get stupid.
3) Because each of us create our own meanings about things, we are the meaning-makers who construct our own unique Matrix.
4) Indexing and referencing of class and a member of class level is vital in avoiding meta confusions that bind us to create double-binds.
5) Questioning activates the Matrix and so is a most powerful communication skill of all.
6) Personal power and congruency comes from “applying to self” first.
7) Being gloriously fallible is the meta-state that inoculates from fear of failure, vulnerability, and mistakes.
8)There’s no sameness in the world, only change and processes.
9) To get the results we want we have to take action.
10) Productivity comes through closing the knowing-doing gap so that what we know in our mind can become part of muscle-memory.
11) Only sensory specific feedback is clean enough to be useful and only then if it’s requested.
12) The sanity line is drawn between between responsibility to and responsibility for.
13) There are frames-by-inference in everything we think and say.
14) Where there is a frame, there’s a game; where there is a game, there’s a frame. It’s all about the inner game of our frames.
15) When you win the inner game, the outer game is a cinch.
16) Someone is always setting the frames; whoever sets the frame controls the game.
17) The name of the game is to name the game.

Neuro-semantics is also known as the science of success. ” – As quoted in the Wall Street Journal.
