NLP Exercise 2
Broad Perspective Exercise
A Exercise Shared by Jon Wainwright, CPC, Editor
You will need the following:
1. A few minutes in a quiet place
2. The directions for this experience
3. Your Undivided Attention to This Exercise
Close your eyes and think of a unpleasant conflict you had with someone at sometime. This can be a friend,
family member, boss, anyone.
Now go through the experience and relive this situation. Don't worry were going to fix this forever soon. Pay attention to the other person's posture, hand gestures, tone of voice and overall reaction.
Okay, clear that thought away, Now, relive the experience as the other person. Remembering what you learned in the first stage, try to imagine the situation from their point of view, what they were thinking, how they felt and how they felt living that moment.
Identify any new feeling you have towards the conflict and then relive this once more, this time from a
neutral point view. Do you notice anything new when you experienced it from this new perspective?
Now these three points of view carry tremendous value. You can now perceive how others are feeling about a particular situation and view yourself from a
neutral position to make the wisest decision possible.
Having a more broad perspective on the world will help you make more objective
Remember that while this is a great way to analyze the world and get another perspective on things, that these are our opinions of how someone actually feels and one should test the waters before jumping in.
