Anchoring is the process of stimulus response. William Twittmeier first to notice 1902 when he is his research into the knee jerk reaction this was noticed and published by the American Medical Association. In his study he found that if he told the patient that he was going to hit their knee, they would jerk their knee without being hit.
Ivan Pavlov 1904 Russian Medical Society noticed this and called it ‘Stimulus Response’
In his study he would show the dog a steak and ring a tuning fork, than when he rang the bell the dog would salivate without the steak being present. This became behavioural psychology and came originally from Pavlov. Andrew Salter wrote book conditioned reflexes in 1936. In NLP people are subject to anchoring, How many people were subject to an anchor today? Well alarm clock, stop light, certain ad slogans, phone all our behaviour is response to certain stimulus or anchor.
Behavioural psychologists believe our behaviour is a series of anchors that is a series of conditioned reflex and that we are simply a condition reflex machine. Learning new things is simply a matter of setting up new anchors and connecting new things with those anchors.
A swish pattern is that we’ve learnt is an example of doing a visual anchor. Any time person is associated, intense state, if we apply at the time of peak of the experience a specific stimulus, then the two get linked together neurologically, and anchoring can get you access to past states and linking the past state to the present and to the future.
Now that’s useful, if you want to be more in control of your state you can use a powerful resource anchor all of the times when ever you felt really positive about yourself stacked together, then this would help you when you felt a bit low or felt that your resources weren’t totally present. You can fire off this anchor, then that would probably put you in a really positive state. How would you like to be totally in charge of your own internal state? Is the state controlled by the way you wake up?
Well you are in control of your own state, At any moment you can be in the kind of state you choose to be in. Pay attention to your own internal representational systems. Here are some ways to get in control of your state. External event [can be external or internal communication] ends up as internal representational is intimately coupled to a state and that state is intimately coupled to a physiology. A external event can be thoughts that you had inside your head or memories that get triggered inside your head , so we have an external event , but it could be some communication from inside yourself or outside yourself, which end up inside yourself as an internal representation and that internal representation is intimately coupled to a state and that state is intimately couple to a physiology.
