#12 The Meaning of Communication is the Response You Get!

NLP PRESUPPOSITION #12:  the meaning of communication is the RESPONSE you get.  Whatever you think you think you communicated if you get a different response than you intended then of course it’s that response that’s important.  Both parties involved have 100% responsibility for communication.  It’s your responsibility to communicate your message in such a way that the other person will understand it in the way you wanted them to understand it.

Well, that is until you get in a voice activated lift in Scotland!


(If you are of a nervous disposition or have an aversion to odd bursts of strong language, then I suggest you skip the laughs and the fun of the next 3 minutes and instead continue with your plain, boring, uneventful day.)
