NLP Meta Model: Precision Questioning and Listening

The NLP Meta Model starts with our ability recognize language patterns that people use, which give away the filters they are applying. Where these filters lead them to make an unhelpful interpretation of events , the second part of the Meta Model equips us to challenge those deletions, distortions, and generalizations.

The NLP founders, John Grinder and Richard Bandler defined the Meta Model from observing and transcribing the interventions that family therapist, Virginia Satir, made with her clients. She would notice what they said and ask precision questions that exposed the filters that were scrambling their thinking.
The patterns of language we use get in the way of communicating accurately – with others and with ourselves. The Meta Model gives us a set of patterns we can recognize, and suggests questions we can ask, to challenge the faulty thinking embedded in the Language we use.
