·          I have more notes than I can publish at the moment. So, instead of leaving you in the dark until I do publish them, I’ve decided to post them here.

·          Notes will be removed when they become moot.



Research Topics: Neuro-linguistic Programming


Book: 7 Steps to Emotional Intelligence (Paperback)


“7 Steps to Emotional Intelligence reveals the structuring beneath Emotional Intelligence (EI), utilising its unique framework to combine EI and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) the study of excellence that examines how behaviour is neurologically formulated.

     7 Steps to Emotional Intelligence confidently integrates the insights of EI and NLP to promote a greater understanding of how emotions work and how they can be worked upon. This book is driven by one important message, 'Don't just think about it, do it!'

     A model-based guide packed with powerful NLP exercises and self-assessment techniques, it allows you to generate your own tricks, and to partake in an intensive EQ excellence course that utilises the self-programming practices of NLP.

     A thoroughly structured, functionally formatted guide to improving your EQ, 7 Steps to Emotional Intelligence serves as a textbook of EI theory, a manual of NLP techniques, and a workbook that systematically leads you through the process of dynamic EQ improvement. It answers the essential EI questions:

·        what do my emotions mean?;

·        how do I manage my emotions?;

·        how can I deal with conflicts in an emotionally intelligent way?;

·        what motivates people and how can I take that into account?;

·        how can I handle situations in the best possible way?;

·        how do I get what I want?” 7 Steps to Emotional Intelligence: Books: Patrick E. Merlevede,Denis Bridoux,Rudy



New Theory:


Excessive computer use can lead to vision problems such as convergence insufficiency, accommodative insufficiency, problems with mobility/ocular motility, and computer vision syndrome. Someone using a computer for an extended period of time may develop these vision problems, and may also develop a tendency to stare straight ahead instead of looking around.

     This continued staring, straight ahead, causes certain areas of the brain to become under stimulated. According to Neuro-Linguistic Programming our gaze direction is related to our brain processes.

     As a result of this lack of stimulation in the brain caused by this continued staring, someone using a computer excessively will have his or her instincts and emotions suppressed to an extent. For example, someone might have a suppressed the desire to roll their eyes impatiently, tap their foot, or gasp, if they are waiting for a computer to load a very large web page. Another person might have their thirst suppressed and become dehydrated as a result. Others might have suppressed emotions from light sensitivity caused by a computer monitor or sound sensitivity from pc noise.

     This suppression of instincts and emotions causes problems in dealing with stress. For example someone with a suppressed the desire to roll their eyes impatiently may lose the tendency to roll their eyes. This lack of eye rolling, which could have the effect of improving visualization and reducing eye strain, could, over time, cause someone to have chronic stress along with conditions such as problems with eye contact.

“Based on observations by Bandler and Grinder,

·           When people look up, they're visualizing [the eyes diverge and accommodate more easily when looking up, improving far visualization].

·           When they look horizontally to the left and right, they're either remembering or constructing sounds.

·           When they look downward and to our left [their right], they're accessing their feelings [also sense of touch—‘kinesthetic’].

·           And when they look downward and to our right [their left], they're talking to themselves (Auditory Digital). “ 'An Introduction to NLP'



·        Does reading, when looking down and alternately to the left and right, help people to access their feelings and to talk to themselves (self-talk)?

·        Is NLP therapeutic for people with a collapsed tolerance to sound (hyperacusis)? Gazing to the right improves the brains ability to construct sounds? Gazing to the left improves the brains ability to remember sounds?

·        Staring straight ahead for long periods of time decreases brain functions associated with NLP?

·        Are there exercises I do to improve brain functions associated with NLP?
