Accessing Cues

(same as analogue marking)

Agreement Frame

A linguistic pattern that enables you to elegantly disagree with someone whilst maintaining rapport. Fantastic for sales and negotiation. The key word to avoid is “but” as this negates the sentence that precedes it. Using the word “and” instead is much more powerful.

Analogue Marking

From the research of Professor Birtwhistle and Morabian, it has been demonstrated that only 7% of the meaning of our communication is carried in the words we use. The remaining 93% is carried in the physiology and voice tonality we use when we communicate, 55% in our physiology, and 38% in our voice tonality. Analogue marking is when someone marks out a particular word or phrase with something non verbal. This enables us to pick up incongruencies. For instance, someone says “yes” and marks the word by shaking their head “no”.


Based on the work of Ivan Pavlov, anchoring techniques enable us to set up powerful associations in the nervous system. Naturally occurring anchors would include the ‘our song’ phenomena, the smell of a particular perfume immediately bringing to mind the memory of a person along with the feelings you have towards them. We can use anchors deliberately to instantly call forth our most powerful positive emotions when we need them.

"As-If” Frame

The As-If frame works by having a person acts as if they had already achieved their goal or already had their problem disappear.


When bringing a memory to mind, the memory would be said to be associated if you were looking through your own eyes, seeing what you saw, hearing what you heard, feeling what you felt. Being associated enables us to recall the emotions we felt at the time.


An attitude is a collection of values and beliefs around a particular subject or area of life. NLP enables us to discover someone’s values and beliefs, and also to assist them in changing them if necessary. With these techniques it is possible to enable someone to change their attitude.
