Abstract: From its beginnings in the 1970s, at the heart of NLP has been the attitude of curiosity. When Richard Bandler and John Grinder started NLP by modelling the language patterns of Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir,and Milton Erickson, they were really curious as to how these therapists were able to be far moreeffective in their communication than other people. This curiosity was their first step in being able to try to see the world from other points of view. It is this attitude of curiosity that makes it possible to step intosomeone else’s map of the world and begin to understand the patterns that make up their excellent performance.
