In this post, I want to focus on the Competitive, Cooperative, Polarity, and Meta Meta-Program. Once you understand this pattern, you’ll gain tremendous insight into how you respond to information, as well as how those around you respond, and you can better blend your style as appropriate.
In Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), a strategy is a recipe for results. It’s how we order and sequence our experiences to produce a specific result. A simple way to think of a neurological strategy is it’s what you do in your mind when you do something. They are the thought patterns that produce our results. We have strategies for everything we do from falling in love to getting motivated, to feeling depressed. We aren’t usually conscious of them. If we know what they are, then we can use our strategies to get in a particular state more effectively.
