Many people wonder if politicians are using some kind of secret NLP tactics.
There’re a lot of terms from NLP that have made their way into regular language.
And like many scientific terms that do this, they are often used incorrectly.
Take the word “quantum” for example. It’s root is the same root as the word “quantity” or “quantify” which basically means “a discrete amount.”
In English grammar, there’s the idea of “countable nouns” and “uncountable nouns.”
Something like “hair” for example, is considered “uncountable.” That’s why we say you have “a lot of” hair instead of you have “many” hairs.
A “lot of” water vs. “many” water, etc.
So what exactly IS “quantum physics?” It’s the discovery that “energy” in it’s raw form is more “countable” than “uncountable.”
It comes in specific levels, rather than a continuous stream.
Yet the word “quantum” is used in all kinds of mystical and metaphysical ways.
NLP is the same way.
Some politician is talking, and people will say, “he’s using advanced forms of NLP, that’s why he so manipulative.”
But if you actually know a bit about NLP, you can ask some “meta model” questions.
Like what “specifically” is he doing that comes from NLP?
Point out what words and phrases he’s using that come from NLP?
Chances are, most politicians don’t have much of a clue about NLP is. Sure, they’ve got their handlers that give them advice, and tell them to say “this” and not “that.”
But NLP is REVERSE ENGINEERED from people who are naturally persuasive anyway.
Which means it’s NOT some kind of “secret formula” created in some lab somewhere.
It’s a collection of things that EVERYBODY DOES. Only some people are naturally better at it than others.
Just like some people are naturally better at basketball.
Imagine if you reverse engineered the best basketball players in the world. You came up with a school for basketball players. You called your school the “purple kangaroo” school. And it became a household name.
Does that mean that anybody that can naturally dribble well and dunk is using secret “purple kangaroo” techniques?
Nope. They’re just good at basketball.
Once you start actually practicing the individual language patterns in Covert Hypnosis, you’ll see that most politicians are pretty clueless.
Sure, they might throw out a few stray “patterns” once in a while, but that doesn’t mean they are consciously “using” NLP.
Which means the more you DO practice these language patterns, it won’t take long before you’re WAY MORE persuasive than even the best politicians.
