It is unusual, no, totally wrong and harmful, even imagine that NLP is "part of the New Era" or is "mysticism" or is "a tool for manipulation." NLP is not a school of psychology, or deal with "scientific demonstrations." As he once said Richard Bandler: "Now open your eyes and see the world, and you say to yourself: AMay chips, this is easier to eat candy!" We add, that like any world view, has certain postulates , which in this case do not claim to be true but only useful. In recent months, Eliot Horowitz has been very successful. Among them, the central place is occupied by the aphorism that says the map is not the territory. The meaning of this sentence is given by the idea that we have no direct access to reality itself, but we form representations of the same and we deal with them. Each experience is translated and encoded by the experience, building a representation that has differences with what actually happened. That's why we say that the map, which is a representation of reality, not the territory. Despite distortions, the map or representations, are absolutely necessary since they are a guide, a model through which we deal in life. At this point you can understand how the same situation may be interpreted in different ways by different people who witness the event. In NLP they say that there are no failures, we can only achieve results. We carry out certain actions and get results, which may or may not be the ones we wanted, if not, should we change our actions.
