How do beliefs act as a filter in the communication model?
Beliefs are generalizations about how the world is. Beliefs are the assumptions that we have about the way the world is that either create or deny personal power to us. So, beliefs are essentially our on/off switch.
Beliefs are what we hold to be true, about ourselves, others and the world. Whether religious or not, we all have beliefs, and the quality of our beliefs significantly influences the quality of our life.
In the process of working with someone’s beliefs, it’s important to discover what beliefs they have that cause them to do what they do. We also want to find out the disabling beliefs, the ones that do not allow them to do what they want to do.
