Default Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) = Scientology?

My wife has started to talk about joining this....thing. Not sure what the hell it is. Googling about NLP, Scientology comes up.

Wife and I are arguing coz I don't want her to go to these NLP meetings. She's arguing that there's nothing wrong with it.

What say ye, OT? Brainwashing or not?

Tell her to stop talking to whatever clucking skank friend of hers that turned her onto it. Even if it's not related to Co$(which it looks like it is) it's clearly designed to separate people from their money.

What line of work is she in?


I bet she's talking about classes that profess to make you better at thisgs involving persuasion.

Other uses
While the original goals of neuro-linguistic programming were therapeutic, the patterns have also been adapted for use outside psychotherapy for interpersonal communications and persuasion including business communication, management training,[45] sales,[46] sports,[47] and interpersonal influence,[48] used for coaching, team building, public speaking, negotiation,[49] and communication. The UK Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development includes a number of NLP courses including an application of NLP to coaching in its 2010 training programme.[50] A range of books have been published related to the application of NLP to coaching.

C/N's: Your not acting the way she wants you to so she's going to learn how to change you.

Relationships aren't always one-way man, and you have to make compromises from time to time. Compromise with her and make a deal where you get to jack off using her butthole every time she goes to one of these meetings. You'll both be happier for it.

Seems like the typical pay us lots of money to make you feel better about your life, telling you that you are better than anyone who doesn't seek to better themselves through our program.

We have similar things here. Had a friend who's mom was dragged to one (by her dumb slut coworker). Long story short, these people convinced her that anyone who was not willing to join and "better" themselves are not worthy of associating with. She soon divorced her husband because he wouldn't join. My friend went to a few of them and says they are bat **** crazy. He barely sees or speaks to his mother.


So in short, don't let your wife go. Not unless you want to make a thread later this year about how your wife left you because of this brainwashing thing.

So your wife wants to go to classes that make her better at coercion and manipulating people?

Does 'she' have an Adam's Apple?

"neuro-linguistic programming," Nope, that definitely isn't synonymous with brainwashing.

Yep. Just finished a tense argument a half hour ago. Basically told her that anything about "re-programming" your neurons (brain) isn't a good thing. (well, I'm really paraphrasing here )

She ain't going. At least, for now.

Neuro-linguistic programming is basically hypnoses. You can be hypnotized to stop smoking, to cluck like a chicken or to hand over all your cash to a stranger. Your wife isn't going to learn how to hypnotize other people, she's going to get hypnotized by a con-artist . . . and hypnotized so she needs to go back again and again.

kind of what i was thinking. Unless it the matrix, then it might be okay. But still, at least other cults/schemes at least try to hide it a bit.


Hmmmm. how about that...
