NLP - VAK Modes Of Thinking

Representational Systems

In NLP the term “representational systems” refers to the neurological mechanisms behind the five senses. The basic representational systems are considered to be: Visual (sight), Auditory (hearing), Kinesthetic (feeling and touch), Olfactory (smell) and Gustatory (taste). 

More than twenty-five hundred years ago, in his book On The Soul, the Greek Philosopher Aristotle categorized the senses into the five basic classes of sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste. Aristotle’s five senses are the basis of the five ‘representational systems’ of NLP. According to Aristotle, the five senses provided the mind (or psyche) with information about qualities in the outside world that fell into a certain range. Each representational system is designed to perceive certain basic qualities of the experiences it senses. These include characteristics such as color, brightness, tone, loudness, temperature, pressure, etc. These qualities are called “Sub modalities” in NLP since they are sub-components of each of the representational systems.

As the term implies a “representational system” is more than simply an information channel it includes the entire system of processes relating to a particular sensory modality including input, processing, storage, retrieval and output.

Strategies for Developing Representational Systems

It is the beliefs of NLP that everybody was born with the capacity to fully use all of their sensory representational systems. NLP provides several methods by which people can learn to develop and enhance their ability to more fully use any of their senses. These methods include the utilization of:

·         Adjusting Physiology

·         Pacing and Leading Reference Experiences

·         Chunking

·         Reducing Interferences from the Other Senses

·         Encouraging Positive Overlap with Other Senses

·         Clearing Personal History and Limiting Beliefs
