NLP Eye Accessing cues

NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming)  was developed by Richard Bandler and linguist John Grinder, and they believed that NLP will be useful in "finding ways to help people have better, fuller and richer lives"

There are usual meanings to the eye moment. By observing the eye movement, it is possible to tell “which sensory systems” are accessed.

1. Up and to the left usually means that a person is remembering something visually


2. Up and to the right usually means that a person is imagining something visually


3. Left side usually means a remembered sound


4. Right side  usually means an imagined sound


5.  Down right (which is down right obvious!) usually means that a person is accessing a bodily feeling or emotion.


6. Down left usually means that a person is accessing internal dialogue



Note that venerable proverb: Children and fools _always_ speak the truth. The deduction is plain --adults and wise persons _never_ speak it. Parkman, the historian, says, "The principle of truth may itself be carried into an absurdity." In another place in the same chapters he says, "The saying is old that truth should not be spoken at all times; and those whom a sick conscience worries into habitual violation of the maxim are imbeciles and nuisances." It is strong language, but true. None of us could _live_ with an habitual truth-teller; but thank goodness none of us has to. An habitual truth-teller is simply an impossible creature; he does not exist;he never has existed. Of course there are people who _think_ they never lie, but it is not so--and this ignorance is one of the very things that shame our so-called civilization. Everybody lies--every day;every hour; awake; asleep; in his dreams; in his joy; in his mourning; if he keeps his tongue still, his hands, his feet, his eyes, his attitude, will convey deception--and purposely.
