The Dynamics of Metaprograms

Metaprograms, by definition, are dynamic, and not static. They are dynamic under several forms:

  • they are found in different combinations from individual to individual, and the extent to which this happens varies over time;

  • they are found in different cultural characteristics from civilization to civilization, and the extent to which this happens varies over time, as Patrick Merlevede notes;

  • a metaprogram, being a fine feature, can be changed, using any of the six NLP processes for it. For no other procedure, have six distinct strategies been established to achieve a replacement of a concept within NLP;

  • a metaprogram varies, for the same individual, from one context to another;

  • any metaprogram can change instantly as a result of trauma;

  • metaprograms influence each other, relate to each other: a change of a metaprogram can generate the change of other metaprograms;

  • metaprograms influence the personality of the individual: by changing a metaprogram in one context, other metaprograms or even the same one can be changed, in other contexts;

  • definitions and conceptions about metaprograms as fine personality traits change and evolve, through research and refinement. Thus, they become clearer and easier to use.

In this sense, a feature of metaprograms is change, and the diagnosis of personality from this point of view has never been a given and taken as irrevocable. Diagnosis with the help of metaprograms is a complex process, which contributes to the personal and professional development of the individual including through the option of intervention.

As I pointed out by ticking the benefits of metaprograms, the diagnosis is made with strategic precision and is comparable to replacing a small and specific wheel of an entire mechanism that slows down a clock or prevents it from functioning at the level of the potential and resources available to it.
