NLP Meta Programs: How we See the World

In an earlier video, I talked about the filters in our brains that shape our interpretations of the world around us. But which bits of our experience do we delete, distort, and generalize? And which do we focus on? Meta Programs are the mental processes that direct our attention. They are habits for how we think about the world we see.

Meta programs are NLP’s way of describing how we select what we pay attention to.

7 of the most commonly used and easy-to-spot meta programs:
1. Relationship Filter
2. Chunk Size Filter
3. Direction filters
4. Convincer Representation Filter
5. Frame of Reference Filter
6. Primary Interest Filter
7. Adapting Style

1. For each of these meta programs, consider how your own filters work (3 MC CPD Points)
2. Start to notice the people around you – the things they say and how they seem to interpret events. What can you tell about how their meta programs work? (3 MC CPD Points)
