    I was going to order a book on NLP recently cos I heard enough to make it sound interesting as a therapeutic method but I looked it up online and the wikipedia said its widely recognised as pseudoscience

    Just going to show once again that I'm always just one wikipedia search away from joining a death cult

    freud is pseudoscience. reich is pseudoscience. i think that misses the point though.

    it's about finding ways to conceptualise what happens. how to model processes and systems.

    NLP has its strongest presence in the world of buisness and sales becasue it promises
    to teach ways to manipulate people. i know them obviously but i dont need them.
    ive got my own methodology lol.

    I have no interest in controlling other people, I just wish they'd spontaneously do everything I want them to

    I'm more interested in controlling myself, something I find impossible as a general rule

    however when you start learning things about yourself you simulataneously are learning things about other people
    its unavoidable.

    BTW have you seen this 'Wild Wild Country' thing on Netflix? I've only watched one episode but I think it might interest you

    Indian religious sex cult comes to (very) small town Montana

    one interesting (possibly spurious) thing i read in the NLP for dummies book i skim read in foyles last week was that people will generally fall into the categories of 'visual' 'aural' etc. and you can tell what they are by how they speak

    so you can reframe how you speak and they'll understand you better

    also 'the map is not the territory'
