Perceptual Position is a particular perspective or point of view. In NLP there are three general positions one can take while engaging in an experience. First position involves experiencing something through our own eyes associated in a first person point of view. Second position involves experiencing something as if we were in another person’s shoes. Third position involves standing back and perceiving the relationship between ourselves and others from a dissociated perspective. Perceptual Positions follows the idea that we learn more when we are able to think about the same situation from different perspectives.
