NLP Advanced Language Patterns Mastery Day 52: Comparisons Exercise

This exercise will require a willing partner.

Comparisons Exercise – This exercise will require a willing partner.

  1. A states a problem/limitation.
  2. B determines the comparison involved in the limitation.
    “As compared to what?”
    “What are you comparing this to, to even recognize what it is?”
    Determine: Is this a useful comparison to change? If we changed this comparison, would that change his/her experience? If not, is there another comparison in this context that would be more useful to change? (Hint: it’s often useful to go earlier in the sequence.)
  3. B tries to change components of the comparison in a useful way. Be sure you’re only changing the comparison, not the complex equivalence of cause-effect.

Possible components to change in a comparison:

  1. Change chunk size
  2. Digital/analog
  3. Change criteria
  4. Mismatch/match (or less/more)
  5. Change time frame
  6. Other/other comparison
  7. Different self/other
  8. Self/self
