Original SIN of NLP

NLPs S I N
Neuro Liguistic Program aka NLP is gaining popularity by its special insight into human
psyche and its efficacy in bringing in behavior change through funny creative ways
utilizing the richness of right brains creative realm
NLP says man invariably is constrained by SIN.
Of course its not about original SIN. Its about NLPs original SIN.
Mans understanding is clouded by SIN.
How?
The popular saying from NLP MAP IS NOT THE TERRITORY bears testimony to NLPs
original SIN.
The event that you witness and your understanding of the event are not necessarily
same.
Equally no two people though witnessing a same event at the same time understand in
the same way.
This is because of this SIN.

S is Social Constraint
Social constraint means social genetic factors such as social system & custom,
language and practices that influence our perception of an event. We tend to
understand an event based on our social upbringing. For example women going for
work and coming late from work may be unacceptable to a person who comes from a
rural background. He or she tend to understand differently from a person who has
urban orientation.
I is Individual Constraint
Individual constraint means the distinct individual make up of a man.
As a child grows she picks up from her experiences particular beliefs values prejudices
and rules. These beliefs values & rules govern our understanding of an event. Once
bitten twice shy is a classic example of Individual constraint.
N is Neurological Constraint
Neurological constraint comes by the limitation of our senses in perceiving an event

Original SIN of NLP

Our seeing hearing feeling have limitations in perceiving an event. The clarity of a
picture to an individual also depends on the power of seeing of the individual; also the
distance of the picture and the brightness also play a role in the clarity of perceiving
through eyes.
Sound audibility and the clarity of sound cloud the understanding of words and
sounds
Tactile feel depends on the location and the intensity.
Thus our nerves influence perception of an event.
Therefore we dont deal with the actual world but deal with our appropriated world.
It is because of S I N
S I N we mean Social Individual Neurological constraints
