Beliefs

A person’s beliefs are a description of the world in which he/she lives. Beliefs that only constrain a person can be met rarely. More often, a belief describes some part of the world which includes a difficult path to something good. These obstacles are expressed by people to others in the form of complaints or as objections in response to proposals of some solutions.

To work with them, it is necessary to be able to identify the positive part of a belief and the negative, constraining part.

Examples:

You can’t get a good position without profitable connections.

The positive part is the idea of the presence of “a good position” and “profitanle connections

The constraining part is “can’t get (it) without.”

I can’t get success because I lack the experience.

The positive part is the ideas of “success” and “experience.”

The negative part is “I can’t” and “I lack.”

 

Types of Communication

By changing a person’s world through the transformation of his/her beliefs, we may both worsen and improve the situation described by the belief. At the same time, we may have an impact on both the positive and negative parts of a belief.

This fact gives us four types of communication:

Constraint Widening (Humanistic approach)

It will be harder to succeed if you don’t have a lot of experience.

Constraint Narrowing (Provocative approach)

Success is not for you because you have very little experience.

Support Narrowing (Combat approach)

Yes, all efforts will be unsuccessful without experience.

Support Widening (Guru approach)

Is it possible to live a happy life without experience?

 

Transformation of Beliefs

Work with a belief involves shifting the focus of attention from the belief itself to other elements of the world:

Values and Identities – highly significant values, qualities, personality traits, and roles behind a belief.

Words of beliefs – words and concepts included in the belief directly.

Goals, results – possible tasks which a person has in the context of a belief.

Sensory, context – direct experience and contexts.

The shift of attention is produced by four basic types of thinking.

Deductive – from the general to the special.

Inductive – from the special to the general.

Traductive – lateral movement, the search of analogies.

Meta – dissociation, a detached view.
