NLP Now – The META MODEL – Mind Reading


The Meta Model looks at the language patterns we make, which are made at the surface level (click to read) to recover the deleted information.

Mind Reading occurs when someone claims to think they know what another is thinking without verification.

            “I know you do not love me anymore.”

How does the speaker know that? How do they know how the person thinks or believes?

Mind Reading is believing we know the thoughts, intentions, feelings, meanings, motivation, or internal processes of another person – with no basis in a reasonable way, or not having logical grounds for interpretation or direct, sensory observation of that person.

The Mind Reading statements are challenged by asking simply “how do you know?”.

            “You do not like me anymore.”

            “What makes you think that I do not like you anymore?”

The speaker has to go on a transderivational search, (click to read) to verify what their statement actually means, which once found can be challenge.
