What is the communication model?
The NLP Communication Model describes how we take in messages from outside the body – the external event – and move them through a series of filters into our memory. It’s an important model to learn because once we understand that we can learn how the ‘internal representation’ of that event can continue to impact our lives – and what we can do about it.
It explains how we receive information that comes from the outside world, how we process it and how it influences the way we communicate/respond to others.
It explains how we process and use information and how this affects our state, physiology and behaviour. In order to make changes it is necessary to understand this model because it gives us an overview of how we as human beings make sense of our worlds – how we construct our realities.
