Neuro-linguistic programming

Neuro-linguistic programming is a pseudoscientific approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California, United States, in the 1970s. NLP’s creators claim there is a connection between neurological processes, language and behavioral patterns learned through experience, and that these can be changed to achieve specific goals in life. Bandler and Grinder also claim that NLP methodology can “model” the skills of exceptional people, allowing anyone to acquire those skills. They claim as well that, often in a single session, NLP can treat problems such as phobias, depression, tic disorders, psychosomatic illnesses, near-sightedness, allergy, the common cold, and learning disorders. NLP has been adopted by some hypnotherapists and also by companies that run seminars marketed as leadership training to businesses and government agencies.

If one does the smart thing, and maintain his right to remain silent, one does not worry about neuro-linguistic programming.

Don't talk to the police


:+1: and if one needs to say something, let it be “I need legal representation”


Are any DTV members expecting a visit from the FBI? :thinking:

Just shut the fuck up. I learned this the hard way. When the beef police came knocking at my jerky store. 6 hrs of interrogation, telling me I was a liar, insinuating I was breaking laws… long story short he typed out a report and handed it to me for my signature while simultaneously letting me know he thought i was a good girl on the uppity up.

The report stated I had inadvertently and maybe unknowingly broken the law. I handed it back to him refusing to sign. He just smiled and said he’d be back tomorrow to see the hubby.

You can’t sell jerky that doesn’t have a federal bug sticker on it lol, who knew.

Next time I will just shut the fuck up!:speak_no_evil:

Yup. As soon as you say you want to talk to your lawyer, they are supposed to be prohibited from further engaging with you without an attorney present.

This NLP is this something like what tv news presenters do, when they talk, they always speak in a certain forced stop and start fashion its really noticeable in some of them and also politicians. I know they are trying to speak clearly, but often it comes out like a form of linguistic technique that’s inadvertently subliminally controlling.

Yes, nailed it + folks close by getting you in specific emotional state verbally and using touching to link their trigger words with your current emotion they just induced. Next time they can get you in the same emotional state with just words and subtle touch - if you are weak spirit - so nothing to worry about for you, think first one that tries will be locked in perpetual state of pain if he tries it on you :rofl:
