Neuro Linguistic Programming Terms and Definitions

NLP Glossary of Terms – C

Usually involves the comparison between two different sets of non-verbal cues (external verifiable behavior). It allows us to distinguish another’s state through non-verbal cues.
Chunking/Chunk Size
As in thinking – moving up or down a logical level. Chunking up is moving up to a higher, more abstract level that includes the lower level. Chunking down is moving to a level, which is more specific.
Complex Equivalence
This occurs when two statements are considered to mean the same thing. “She doesn’t look at me, and that means she doesn’t like me”.
When the external behavior matches the words the person says.
That of which we are currently aware.
Contrastive Analysis
This is a submodality process of analyzing two sets of submodalities to discover the Drivers. It is what makes them different. For example the difference between Ice Cream (which the client likes) and Yogurt (which the client does not like) are based on submodality distinctions.
Content Reframe
Also called a “Meaning Reframe”. Giving another meaning to a statement by recovering more content, which changes the focus, is a Content Reframe. You could ask yourself, “What else could this mean?” or “What is something you had not noticed?”
Context Reframing
Giving another meaning to a statement changing the context. You could ask yourself, “What is another context in which this behavior would be more appropriate?” Criteria. The NLP word for values – what is important to you.
Crossover Mirroring
Matching a person’s external behavior with a different movement, Example: Moving your finger to match the client’s breathing.
