Section 1: Introductions

In this section we introduce Linguistic Presuppositions. Have you ever wanted to learn the skills of the master communicators? How would it be if you cold become known as an influential communicator? what about if you could discover others intentions and motivations simply by listening and understanding the language that they use.
At best language loosely describes and already generalised experience. Is what you HEAR REALLY what is being said?


A written definition of what lnguistic presuppositions are. Useful to commit to memory


Like it or not, you are where you are in your life as a direct result of the decisions you have made unconsciously and consciously to date. The Cause and effect equation is the big stuff in NLP. When you live on the cause side of the cause and effect equation you have full control of your life and personal power. This section is an overview of the concept as later in the course you will learn through Linguistic patterns to identify which side of the equation people reside on simply through speaking and conversing with them.

What is NLP

Have you ever wondered why and how some people just seem to 'click ' with whoever the meet ? What is it that sets those people apart from others? would it be useful to you to be able to adapt your physiology behaviour in such a way that people were drawn to you and that your suggestions were at the very least always considered?


Usng your sensory acuity is one of the skills that you will use all the time if you are workig with NLP. It describes the minute changes in physiology which may have meaning.


Everything we believe to be real is in fact a generalised 'version' of reality & not reality itself. We delete distort and generalise our experience based on our filters. In this section Matt describes ho we interpret our experiences.
