Technique&5:&Meta&Model&
! The!Meta!Model!is!a!very!important!tool!for!recovering! information! about! a! person's! map! of! the! world.! The! Meta! Model! relates! to! the! way! that! our! minds! filter! information! and! subsequently! how! they! generalise,! distort!and!delete!information!that!doesn't!fit!with!our! beliefs,! expectations,! values! and! previous! experiences.! What! Richard! Bandler! and! John! Grinder! found! when! Modelling! Virginia! Satir! is! that! when! people! are! generalising,! distorting! or! deleting! information! they! will! often! have! a! problem! or! problems.! By! asking! a! question! that! forces! them! to! recover! their! generalisation,! distortion! or! deletion,! problems! can! often!just!disappear!!This!is!the!core!of!the!Meta!Model.! It! is! important! to! note! that! none! of! the! Meta! Model! responses! use! the! question! 'why'.! It! is! very! rare! in! NeuroBLinguistic! Programming! to! hear! anybody! use! 'why'!as!that!question!will!take!people!into!the!content! and! story! behind! the! problem.! While! traditional! therapy!likes!to!dwell!in!this!area,!NLP!normally!steers! well! clear! of! it.! A! good! rule! of! thumb! when! using! the! Meta! Model! is! to! ask! questions! that! begin! with! 'how',! 'what',! 'when'! and! 'who'.!
