Universal Quantifiers are universal generalizations without referential index. They are statements that include an all or nothing type of generalization, such as “this always does that” or “every time I do that, then this happens”.
The Milton Model uses statements with words such as ‘all, every, always, never, any, everybody, nobody, no one‘ that act to generalize a particular statement. Universal quantifiers always have an element of exaggeration.

|‘Every word you hear can be a signal to your unconscious ‘|
|‘No one can fail once they really decide to change’.|
You can identify a universal quantifier by querying the quantifier, e.g. ‘Every word, absolutely every word?’. They often includes the use of: “Everyone; No one; All; Every.”
“Everyone would be happy if they didn’t have to work”
