NLP & Intuition

how do you know what you know stay tuned this is Damon with NLP Gym, NLP and intuition if you haven’t already please click subscribe to this YouTube channel to get these videos on a regular basis I’ve often had a conversation with someone especially when I’m coaching them how do you know what you know what somebody tells me it’s like this so it’s like that i’ll say well how do you know that and they will think about it and i’ll come back and say well I just know but it i will say how do you know how do you know that don’t think about it for a while and often the answer is what’s intuition what is intuition and where does it come from his intuition some aliens piping in thoughts to your brain somehow or some divine being sort of just dropping information into your brain now of course not intuition is an unconscious decision or unconscious generalization about something before we have an intuition though we have to take in information externally before we make that generalization or that decision that choice or some sort of assessment there is something you are seeing here in feeling before you have the intuition that part is unconscious therefore when you suddenly come up with the idea for the assessment of the generalization that you come up with it seems like it comes from nowhere if you want it back and retrace your steps you will find that there is something you saw heard or felt or some combination of the two in some cases you could have even smelled or tasted something and made some sort of assessment any of the five senses you took an information externally this is very unconscious and at some point you came up with this idea this generalization that seemed like a phenomenon we call intuition NLP is about modeling excellence and if you’ve ever had the opportunity to talk to someone who is absolutely excellent something like someone who was above or the top of our game in a certain area and you ask them how they become that good at what they’re doing they will tell you one or two things either they don’t know in some cases people really don’t know that they cannot give you a good answer as to why they are so talented or why they’re so good at what they do in other cases they will tell you what they think is the reason why they’re good at what they do what NLP does is it it creates models for that NOP is about modeling the excellence and leaving out all the stuff that doesn’t belong and also trying to leave that as much content as possible and use surely process and with that basically means is when somebody is asked how they became so good at something a lot of times they will tell a story a story about their life story about something that happened that’s more content NLP we want to know what you see here feel smell taste in some cases that led you to to this that leads you to this ability in other words neurologically something you have to practice if you’re an athlete you can’t just know what the athlete takes in with his five senses are five senses and be able to do with the athlete does more logically you will have to practice that exercise that however you can gain insight into why they are as good as they are by knowing what they’re seeing hearing and feeling and what sequence that comes in that’s called strategies in an NLP so whether you’re conscious of it or not you were always taking in information through your five senses often when we have an intuition can seem a bit mysterious therefore we think it must be true and a lot of people pride themselves on their intuition and when they’re right about their intuition they tend to think that because they had an intuition that it must be correct in some way but we’ve all had intuitions that were wrong in fact your intuition is probably wrong just as much as any other assessment or any other well thought-out decision or choice that you’ve made what is the importance of understanding how you create intuition or develop intuition it’s important to know how you make the decisions that you make especially the ones that are unconscious because you might be making decisions that are so unconscious that they’re really not good decisions for you how many times have you walked into a car lot in your life saw a car and you just knew that was the car for you and before you even heard what benefits and features it had you just bought it maybe the car something about the shape of it remind you of a car that was in your childhood that you have a lot of fond memories of it maybe that triggered it could be so many things that triggered why did you make such a quick assessment about something in advertising and in the media they use the same tactics instead of describing benefits and features of something they go to more process than content benefits and features would be content what you see here and in some cases feel when you’re watching a commercial or something that’s trying to persuade convince you something they tend to go more toward images colorful images bright images and music that makes you to evoke certain feelings and certain emotions that is going to show you on something much faster than describing all the benefits and features when you start looking at benefits of features which I recommend that you do before you make a major purchase what it does is it it makes us very conscious of what the benefits and features and comparing or try to figure out the value and is this really worth my money and a lot of times what happens is people become so analytical about that when they’re trying to make a decision based on benefits and features that they just default to not buying it I know this in my own experience with sales you have to be really careful about how many benefits and features you throw at someone and instead you have to feel feel to their emotions I as a sales person would do both I think that’s the ethical way to do that whether it was making a major purchase or being persuaded to do something that was a bit out of character for you go back to one of these incidents and go to the point at which you made the decision to do whatever it was and then start tracing it back what did you see what did you hear what you feel that led up to that the better you understand your process your internal process for making decisions making generalizations and coming upon an intuition the better decisions are going to make more informed decisions are going to make and the less you will be likely to fall for something that is not actually good for yours not

  1. Nice Damon. So if I understood correctly, its better to make educated decisions than emotion-driven that could be influenced/infected by sensory acuity "tricks"?
