— The new logical level of NLP —

What’s NLP 3?

NLP 3 means Neurolinguistic Programming 3.

NLP 3 focuses our attention to a different logical level; it represents a development and a widening of the models that originally constituted NLP 1.

Whats a logical level?

A logical level is a level of analysis of reality. For example, the term “Forest” is at a different logical level from the term “Trees”; I could walk in a forest, and tell “I see only trees, I don’t see the forest.” Why? Because, in order to see the forest I must be at a different logical level. In the same manner, to a lower logical level a computer is nothing more than a mixture of plastics and metal elements, while at a higher level it becomes all that we think when we say “computer.”

NLP 1 allowed to decipher the alphabet of communication; NLP 3 aids us in joining its letters in correct word-groupings —ie: techniques like anchoring or strategies are inserted in the dynamic communication-context of everyday life.

Using NLP 3 means using the rights tools for Sales, Relationships, Therapy and for personal development.

Some history

The original title of the book “Neurolinguistic Programming” was “Neurolinguistic Programming I” the “1” meant that subsequent developments of the NLP were to come.

NLP 3 is the outcome of many years of modeling.

The modeled people used effective communication models and all had succes in their lifes; most of them knew already traditional NLP, but judged it “too slow” or “unhuman” and they then had developed models that didn’t enter in the traditional NLP schemes.

The analysis started from the fact that NLP is a methodology, not a technique. We have then examined the operational models of such people and we have discovered that they all operated a different manner of analysis of reality. It means they operated at a different logical levels compared to the traditional schools of NLP: they —unconsciously— used NLP 3.

What does NLP 3 offer me ?

Emphasis in NLP 3 doesn’t fall on DOING Neurolinguistic Programming, instead it falls on learning to BE a Neurolinguistic Programmer. Our way of teaching NLP has been renewed, bringing the student to interiorize a serie of microabilities that lead to a superior awareness of the various processes in action.

Emphasis has been set on the integration of the various techniques of NLP for an easy implementation of them in a wider operative context (Sale, Negotiation, Therapy, Relations, Personal Development, etc.).

The system of NLP 3 also integrates (at its ground level) a series of completely new elements compared to the most traditional schools of PNL, and precisely:

  • Pre-Verbal Symbolism in communication —the comprehension of the symbolic meaning of the gestures
  • Use of olfactory cues in communication
  • Gustatory cues
  • Non verbal Hypnosis (multisensory)
  • New ways of extracting strategies in the field of salesmanship that render obsolete the old schemes
  • New way of doing self-hypnosis
  • Enneagram and its connection with NLP (with a new system)
  • A contribution to classical way of analizing metaprograms (distinguishing the persons on the basis of their questions relating to others: Persons Who, What, Why and How)
  • A new operational diagram of values’ analysis

NLP 3 is complementary to traditional PNL, and amplifies its effectiveness.
