Cortico-limbic technique for targeted communication (CLTC)



Cortico-limbic technique for targeted communication (CLTC)

In the course of evolution our brain has developed as a predictive machine, constantly engaged in detecting potential threats or danger. Therefore the ability to detect any potential signals indicative of such conditions is part of our most basic and primitive brain, the limbic system (more about the emotional and the thinking brain).

One of the best predictors of potentially dangerous situations is if someone else nearby is in such a situation.  Our brain becomes engaged then to identify the other’s stress responses and respond immediately, even unconsciously.


How to use the Body Language Cards?



The cards:

Front of the card: presents an illustrated gesture with a short description below.

A colored classification system in the upper part of the card is used to divide the cards according to the relevant body part (all body gesture, face or arms related gestures).

On the top right of each card an icon provides a visual hint to the meaning of this gesture (a list of the icons and their meaning is provided below).

Back of the card: a short “rephrasing” of the suggested meaning followed by a detailed description. Special comments are provided below the exclamation point icon.

In some cases, when a gesture has unique meaning in a different international context, this information is provided under the specialized icon.

Accessing signals


Bandler and Grinder claimed that matching and responding to the representational systems people use to think is generally beneficial for enhancing rapport and influence in communication. They proposed several models for this purpose including eye accessing cues and sensory predicates.

The direction of eye accesses was considered an indicator of the type of internal mental process (see the eye accessing cue chart).
