Model of the World
We humans do not experience the world as it is – we experience what is termed in NLP ‘a Model of the World’, or to use another common NLP expression, ‘The map is not the territory’. Every road map mirrors only a model of reality, and our inner map of the world is in the same way only a model of the outer world. This, of course, is the reason why people often experience the same situation in different ways.
We receive ongoing impressions – or information – through our five senses. But only a tiny fraction of that information reaches the conscious mind. We humans simply cannot accommodate the millions of bits of information we are bombarded with daily, so the information is “filtered” by our minds, which delete, distort and generalize what we see, hear, feel, taste and smell.
Between reality and the mind is a filter that determines what information gets through to the conscious mind. We also call this filter a Model of the World, i.e. a kind of internal map of how the world works. The filter is formed by our personality patterns, some of these genetic, some formed during childhood. By filtering reality we create an inner model of the world, which is the one we react to.
The information that passes through the filter is called our interpretation, or internal representation, of reality. This part ‘represents’ the external reality. We are not experiencing reality as it is, but as a personal, internal representation of it.
The internal representation consists of internal images, sounds, words, body sensations, and possibly odour and taste.
What is the Model of the World and how was it created?
Our Model of the World is created partly from our genetic disposition and partly from experiences in childhood that have left their imprint. Childhood consists of a long series of events that are experienced for the first time, and often with very open senses, leaving a profound imprint. What meaning we give to these experiences partly depends on our innate character traits and partly on how safe we feel and how our parents react (as they are our role models). Subsequent events are filtered through – and get their meaning from – those past experiences.
An example: A little girl sees a big spider and gets scared. Her mother sees the spider, screams and gets hysterical. The girl gets very scared because of the mother’s reaction, which leaves a deep imprint in her mind, and she will, for the rest of her life, scream when she sees a spider – without really knowing (with her conscious mind) why.
The Model of the World / the filter consists of :
- Metaprograms/personality patterns
Our memories are stored as images, sounds, words, body sensations and perhaps taste and smell. Part of our memories are known to us, others lie in the unconscious and appear as images, words, etc. without us being aware that we present them to ourselves. One example is a person who is going to sit an exam, and on her mind’s screen she presents an image of another examination when things went badly. This image makes the person feel incompetent and certain that she will not pass. This gets her mind to distort the words in the exam questions so that they are perceived as extremely difficult – and this of course decreases her chances of passing.
Metaprograms / personality traits
Part of our filter consists of what we in NLP call meta programs, or basic personality patterns. Our meta programs determine whether we, for instance, experience the world mostly as a whole or in details; whether we rely mostly on our own or others’ assessment of how well we have done; whether we are more aware of things that look the same or of what is different; or if we rather that things stay the same or prefer new things and experiences.
There are a large number of these meta programs and they have great significance for our belief system. You can learn to hear another person’s meta programs, as they – like other parts of the filter – are reflected in the way the person speaks.
Our personal values underlie everything we do. They determine what we do, where we go, what we eat, whether we live alone or with others, what car we drive and whether we like watching TV or reading books – and what TV programs and books we choose. They are what motivates us to work or to do something else. Values are often unconscious, but you will easily find them by asking yourself: “What does it give me to do this? Why is it important? “.
Our values are personal, and many of them are formed during our upbringing and follow us throughout life. Other values change with age, for example at one time in our lives we may highly value going to a party and getting drunk every Saturday night, while later in life it is usually more important to be comfortable at home.
Since we cannot experience the world as it is, we need to believe how it is and we do this by creating a series of beliefs about ourselves and what we are capable of, and about the world around us. We distinguish between supportive beliefs that help us in our ability to achieve our goals, and limiting beliefs that inhibit us.
An example of a supportive belief held by a student may be: “I find it easy to learn new things”, whereas a limiting belief could be: ”I find it hard to learn.”
Our beliefs are based partly on the Model of the World of our parents and other significant people, and partly on decisions we have taken in connection with childhood experiences. Many of them are closely tied to memories.
