Questions are your stock in trade when you are communicating or negotiating so keep this in mind:

I keep 6 honest serving men

(They taught me all I know)

Their names are What and Why and When

And How and Where and Who.

agent approach
Agent Approach
  • NLP training reveals the process and structure of how people communicate and how they experience the world.  This process and structure affects everything you experience and is completely outside the awareness of most people.Now you can make it work to your full advantage by becoming aware of it and... By knowing how to use it!
  • Neuro linguistic programming is a recognized science
  • Apply the basics to your communication APPROACH

Doris Barnett 29

why this test
Why This Test?
  • You may identify the best agent approach
    • By how someone writes, speaks and reacts
  • It is important to communicate in the unconscious comfort zone to be more successful in your communications
  • Using this information will also help your marketing efforts

Doris Barnett 35

don t assume
Don’t Assume
  • What you see isn’t always what you get
  • If you always test with questions

    • In reverse to most people
    • Don’t assume or spell it out to get results:
      • *** u me

Doris Barnett 36

  • There are several easy ways to establish rapport with someone

answers to test on silent speech
Answers to Test on Silent Speech
  • 0-25 you seem to be rather self-sufficient person who dislikes emotional scenes and prefers to keep your feelings under tight control. This will make it harder for you to read other people’s silent speech signals accurately. During encounters you are probably more concerned about the sort of impression that you are making than the effect another person is having on you.
  • 26-45 you are moderately high on the desire and ability to get along with others-and show a fair degree of empathy. You show little effort at present to exploit your skills at reading silent speech. You give greater attention to verbal messages rather than non-verbal messages.
  • 46-60 you either are or could become highly skilled at reading body language. You have a great empathy towards others, essential qualifications for reading this silent speech effectively.
  • No matter the score you have the ability to become proficient in understanding body language and non-verbal speech if you take the time and trouble to do so

reading buying signs
Reading Buying Signs
  • Look for a sudden relaxation, absence of agitation
  • A chin touch deserves a trial close
  • When they “move-in” closer = CLOSE!
  • When Eye contact extends into gazes = Close like blazes!
  • Watch for them mirroring you
  • A slight head tilt = empathy
