When modeling or undertaking a Strategy Elicitation in NLP, we need to write down in an easy way what we have found, so that we can use the strategy again in the future or to make changes to it.
The standard NLP Notation can be coded thus :-
The Representation System used.
V – visual
A – auditory
K – kinesthetic
O – olfactory
G – gustatory
Internal or External Processing
Is what is happening to them their thoughts, their feeling taking place their minds or body, or
is there some other outside stimulus, i.e. they remember some incident would be internal, notated
by a small “i”, (i), whereas seeing something actually happening would be external, notated by a
small “e”, (e). Having butterflies in the tummy will be an kinesthetic internal, (Ki), whereas feeling
the quality of cloth would be kinesthetic external, (Ke).
Ve – visual external Vi – visual internal
Ae – auditory external Ai – auditory internal
Ke – kinesthetic external Ki – kinesthetic internal
Oe – olfactory external Oi – olfactory internal
Ge – gustatory external Gi – gustatory internal
Remembered or Constructed
Has the person remembered something from the past, or are they constructing for example what
they would look like wearing a certain suit? The representation for visual remembered can be
notated by a small “r“, (Vir), here meaning a visual internal remembered, whereas for a visual
constructed, imagining what they would look like by a small “c“, (Vic).
_m_ about the previous step when linking steps. “m” standing for meta. For example getting a feeling about some stimulus.
