Metaprograms in NLP : Are you ‘moving away from’ or a ‘moving towards something’ person?

Is your map of the world empowering or dis-empowering? What are some of the beliefs you have about yourself and others ? How we respond to our world can brighten our world or make it dark! Two individuals witnessing an event can have two different perceptions about their experiences. All of us filter our experience through our five senses – Visual, Auditory, Gustatory, Kinesthetic and Olfactory and to top it of we have our own set of values, beliefs and other metaprograms about life.

Metaprograms are the way you approach life! They are the mechanisms you attach meaning to events in life, in this article we are considering one of the 7 metaprograms in NLP.

Moving Towards People

An individual who has a ‘Moving Towards’ approach, will direct his focus on goals to be accomplished, or tasks to be fulfilled. They may anticipate experiences or events in the future and are willing to grow. If you think you fall under this category, your view is to look at what you accomplish of any situation, you are quick in decision making or if you put your mind to something you tend to follow through to completion. Sometimes your enthusiasm may get you to take too many risks so be aware of what you do!

A person with this filter are best suited to drive a project, organize events , run successful enterprise and bring new projects!

Moving Away from People

They will give you lengthy pointers on things you need to prepared for be it business, or any other ventures you show interest in!
