are the foundation. They named this new technique: Neuro Linguistic Programming.

What does NLP?
Neurological: All information we get comes
through our senses and our nerves (neurons) and is transported to the
central nervous system and stored in our memory. What we experience in
our lives whether or not conducive to the development of our own identity.
The memories of these experiences, our feelings, thoughts and emotions
control our behavior in the 'now'. Behavior consists of words, tonality
and bodylanguage. Sometimes we want to change our behavior different than
we actually do. Behavior is essential in our lives. We meet each other
with this behavior. We connect with each others, to let things from ourselves
know to the other; this we call communication.
Linguistic: We do communicate through spoken language (lingua =
tongue or language). The body has its language these are postures, gestures,
pitches, facial expressions and other nonverbal behavior.
Programming: While we can communicate others, or others with us,
something to learn, unlearn and change. We influence our own behavior
and therefore also that of others.
