Lazy Learning : Making the Most of the Brains You Were Born With ~
Diana Beaver / Paperback / Published 1994
Neuro Linguistic Programming work over the past 20 years has focused a lot
on the the relationship between learning and language. For example, when
you find out that someone is representing his/her conscious experience
visually, using visual predicates will be much better received that if you
used auditory predicates. For example, if a client says "I'm looking at
trying out this new service...." If you respond with something like "Let
me see if I got this right (paraphrase)" your client will be more open
(less defensive) and more likely to 'learn' from you you will tell them.
If you say "What I heard you way (paraphrase)" you will create sufficient
dissonance and perhaps a small amount of defensiveness which will reduce
the chances of learrning.
Anyway, Lazy Learning (check out amazon for other related titles) is a
good work that show the contributions of NLP to understanding the
connection between language and learning.
