In the context of Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), “The map of the world” refers to an individual’s subjective perception and interpretation of the world around them. It is a metaphorical representation of how a person constructs their understanding of reality based on their unique experiences, beliefs, values, and filters.
According to NLP, each person has their own internal map or model of the world, which influences how they perceive and interact with their external environment. This map is constructed through the interpretation and filtering of sensory information, and it shapes a person’s thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
“The map of the world” in NLP emphasizes the idea that people do not directly experience reality but rather create their own subjective representation of it. This representation is influenced by their beliefs, past experiences, cultural conditioning, and language patterns. NLP techniques aim to explore and modify these internal maps to help individuals improve their communication, understanding, and behavior.
