What is ‘As If’ Frame?
The ‘As If’ frame is a way of exploring possibilities for creative problem solving. What would happen if some element of the situation were different?
“What would Richard Bandler do in this situation?”
“Where will we be six months from now, and how did we get here?”
“What’s the worst thing that could happen, and how would we handle it?”
The ‘As If’ frame is the basis of contingency planning, computer systems testing, and science fiction.
This frame has many applications and is based on acting 'as if' a desired state or outcome has been achieved or 'as if' someone else is giving you information
