Since asking the question (which I probably did too quickly) I found 2 books on NLP at one of our branches and I’ve put holds on them.
From the descriptions I thought it sounded like Self-Talk. But what you’re talking about sounds very different.
Very clever of you to use a food example! You must have known how that would draw me right into your web!]]>
NLP is Neuro Linguistic Programming. It’s the art and science of how the brain codes information, and changing the coding to drastically change your results - from emotions, to likes and dislikes, habits, etc.
For example, if you like ice cream, you have a certain picture in your mind of ice cream, with a certain focus, brightness, location, etc. You also have certain feelings and/or sounds associated with ice cream. If you hate yogurt, you have a different picture in your mind, most likely in a different location, with a different focus and location (probably dimmer) as well as different feelings and sounds.
NLP enables you to “code” ice cream the same way as you “code” yogurt - so that you will now dislike them both. It’s a simplistic explanation and of course, there’s way more to it, but it gives you an understanding of how using NLP can basically ‘rewire’ your brain.
