    Some of the "critiques" I've read call it a pseudo-science.

    I remember hearing about it YEARS ago, but I never found much good info on it.

    Where can I actually learn about it? I know what it stands for but I don't know what it is. Can I get like a Cliff's Notes summary? I don't want a wikipedia article.

    So do you learn different things for specific situations (business, PUA, etc.), or is it concepts that you can apply to anything?

    Any place you'd recommend I start learning?

    :eek3:

    Always found this fascinating. I've never taken the time to learn or apply it though. I may have to read into it again. It does seem like an intriguing hobby :o

    That shit is way too complicated for me to figure out.

    Which is why my motto is "Keep it simple."

    I'm a simple guy and it would take me way too much effort to learn NLP.

    I know enough about it that I could spot it if someone used it on me though.

    I'm familiar with this.

    You are probably right that I couldn't spot it in that scenario, but I believe if someone was using it to get me to do something I wouldn't otherwise want to do, that it wouldn't work.

    If that works the way I think you described it, that would be awesome.

    nlp has little in-field value for picking up chicks (especially when compared to other methods that are known). That's why no one uses it anymore. However, if you learn it, you can do stuff to YOURSELF that you may find useful, like creating anchors, etc. Probably the most useful thing you will get out of it is learning how to phrase certain things, for example "don't think of a pink elephant" will make you think of a pink elephant anyway because of how our minds work (and other salesmen-like techniques). That's the best thing you'll get out of NLP. And the eye-accessing cues have been proved to be bullshit.

    like i said, it doesn't help you pick up chicks. unless you make your money by picking up chicks; god bless you if you do, please teach me; I don't see how that is relevant

    ross jeffries was one of the first PUA gurus, and NLP is pretty much the ONLY thing he relies on.

    Well, RJ isn't a very good pua as declared by anyone who has ever seen him in person, and during the nlp days, nobody was actually going out in the field and using it. Big ups to him for starting the movement, but people in field very rarely use nlp. That's why the focus has shifted to being a cool guy instead of trying to nlp the woman into the sack.

    Question about the whole eye direction thing:

    When it says "if they look right," is that their right or is that right as you're looking at them (their left)?

    And is it really reversed for left handed people? wtf?

    So salesmen techniques that you learn from nlp, like yes-ladders, and learning to phrase things in certain ways help you pick up girls... hmm looks a lot like my first post in this thread lol. Again, there are more effective ways to get girls than nlp, MUCH more effective ways. Which makes it of little in-field value, and if that's the op's reason for learning it, it is a bad one.

    That pretty much summarizes what all the detractors' reports I've read about have said.

    We don't have to take it to a theoretical level. the basic fact is that none of the best structured guys, and even none of the good structured guys, and definitely no naturals, use nlp to an extensive level. The time is better spent learning to be a normal, cool person

    yes, it is most definitely far-fetched.
