Despite widespread misconceptions, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is not only about communication and manipulations. And definitely not about the picks-up and sexual seduction. Never mind the Internet which is full of such articles and interpretations of NLP. NLP as a system was born in the 1970s. Richard Bandler and John Grinder wanted to know how people can become professionals in an unknown area in a short period. They start to work with world-famous experts such as Virginia Satir, Milton Erickson, and Fritz Perls.
