Calibration The ability to notice and measure changes with respect to a standard. Usually involves the comparison between two different sets of external, non-verbal cues. By comparing, we can notice the difference between persons, places, things, states and behaviours. Calibrating depends on refined Sensory Acuity
Cause and Effect When something, usually an action or process, is assumed to be the reason (cause) for something else (effect), The reason for an occurance.
Chaining Sequencing or linking things together, in NLP usually used to link a series of states. (See Chaining Anchors)
Chunking Changing a perception by moving a “chunk”, or a group of bits of information, in the direction of a Deductive or Inductive conclusion through the use of language.
Circle of Excellence Using an imaginary circle on the floor as a spatial anchor to install new or additional resources relative to a situation where different behaviour or thinking is wished
Complex Equivalence This occurs when (1) you attach meaning to something specific and (2) when two statements, one behavioural and one capability, are considered to mean the same. (See Meta Model)
Confusion When all the elements are in place for understanding but just may need rearranging
Confusion to Understanding Original pattern developed by Richard Bandler using Submodalities to change the meaning of your Internal Representations and is the basis of “Like to Dislike.”
Congruence When behaviour (words, tonality, physiology, etc.) matches the words a person says.
Conscious That of which we are currently aware
Conscious-Unconscious When our thoughts and behaviours are integrated at the conscious and unconscious levels.
Content The details of a story. The history of the client
Content Reframe Giving another meaning to a statement by changing the label used or recovering more content, which changes the focus. (Also called a Meaning Reframe)
Context The particular setting or situation in which the content occurs
Context Reframing Giving another meaning to a statement by changing the context i.e. the situation which the statement refers to.
Contrast Frame The contrast frame evaluates by difference. This is the essence of modelling, when you can establish the difference that makes the difference in modelling excellence. In contrastive analysis you are looking for the differences in the submodalities of how a person operates in different experiences.
Contrastive Analysis This is a process of analysing two sets of Submodalities to discover the Critical Submodalities, and more essentially the driver submodality (could be any of the critical submodalities). What makes the two sets different
Convincer Something that convinces the client’s conscious mind that their unconscious mind can do something
Convincer Strategy The filter used in becoming certain or confident that something is okay
Criteria The NLP word for values. Values are what is important to you and determine how you spend your time
Critical Submodality In Submodalities, Critical Submodalities are the difference that makes the difference. Discovered through the process of Contrastive Analysis, Critical Submodalities account for the difference between different internal representations. When Submodalities are compared through contrastive analysis, the Critical Submodalities are the Submodalities that are different.
Cross Over Matching Matching one aspect of a person’s external behaviour or physiology with a different -physiological movement
