So why would you want to learn about NLP ? In the section, matt discusses a number of reasons why NLP anchoring is so popular and useful in both business and personal lives. Can you imagine how much more productive you would be if you were always working at your peak? Have you ever found yourself wishing you could calm down? or on the flip side get motivated!? Anchoring gives you power over your state and puts you in charge of how you feel.
Anchoring allows you to be the guardian of your state and emotions. After studying this lecture you will realise that no-one can MAKE you feel in any way at all . Would you like to be in charge of your own state ? imagine that !
Matt touches on Internal Representations, the way in which we perceive the outside world.

Sensory acuity is the study of the minute micro physiological changes that occur in an individual constantly. These changes in physiology are directly linked to our state and our internal representations.Sensory Acuity is a core skill in NLP and one that you will use all the time and is a useful skill to develop whether you use it in NLP or not. Anchoring is one of the skills that uses sensory acuity.. In anchoring we need to know when someones internal representations have changed and we do this by observing small changes in their physiology.

A word on sensory acuity
A quick Note on the NLP Communication Model

In NLP we need to be able to spot changes in physiology to determine when a client's Internal Representations have changed. And the best way to do this is by using Peripheral vision . When using it we go into something called the Learning state where the unconscsious mind takes in information easily. Matt shows you how to go into peripheral vision.

A word on Peripheral vision

Matt provides a definition for NLP Anchoring and breaks it down into a simple way of remembering it.
Anchoring has been around forever we may just not have been aware that that is what they are. Mat gives an example of a traffic signal to demonstrate how an anchor produces or triggers behaviour unconsciously.
Anchoring can produce a particular behaviour or can evoke an emotional response. Matt touches on the NLP communication model and describes how behaviour is changed when the state and physiology is changed.

The History of Anchoring

Pavlov is the first name that people associate with conditioned response and it was his work with dogs and the digestive system in dogs that has become popularised as the catalyst for the phenomenon. Certainly Ivan Pavlovs work was far more influential then his predecessor Twitmyer and Pavlovs work was picked up and developed by a great many people and continues to be to this day.

Anchors are everywhere and you can use them in many different contexts. In this section matt gives some ideas for use in typical contexts such as business, personal lives and education.

anchoring in context

What types of state do we use in anchoring? There are three types of states that we can use in anchoring and Matt discusses them all. The most effective type of anchor is Naturally occuring states and sadly we can not use them in NLP without a crystal ball, there are also constructed or 'Made up states' Matt gives his opinion on these also as states probably not worth bothering with. Instead emphasis is put on recalled states, the common states fr anchoring in NLP
