The NLP model describes how human personality works
Dr.Richard Bandler invented the term "Neuro-Linguistic Programming" in the 1970s. When asked to write the definition of
Neuro-Linguistic Programming for the Oxford English Dictionary.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming: "a model of interpersonal communication chiefly concerned with the relationship between successful patterns of behavior and the subjective experiences (esp. patterns of thought) underlying them" and "a system of alternative therapy based on this which seeks to educate people in self-awareness and effective communication and to change their patterns of mental and emotional behavior."
According to Dr. Bandler, Neuro-Linguistic Programming is an educational process which can be used to do the things that psychotherapy so rarely manages: to bring about lasting and constructive change. Neuro-Linguistic Programming differs from most therapies in that it is solutions-oriented.
It is not interested in analyzing and dissecting a "problem", but rather focuses on finding satisfactory outcomes for clients.
It is used to enhance personal performance, by helping the individual to control his or her emotional state and to stay focused on what they want from life. He also said that NLP is “ … an attitude that has to do with curiosity, with wanting to know about things, wanting to be able to influence things and wanting to be able to influence them in a way that's worthwhile".
