To attribute one’s ideas or feelings to other people or to another model of the world.
Eg. She makes me feel unhappy.
How is what she is doing making you feel unhappy? How can she do that? It must really be you that is doing it mustn’t it? You are projecting this on to her.
Perception is projection is a theme on our NLP training courses, it encourages empowerment by logically arguing that if we feel in some way negative about someone or something else, then that is just our projection. It empowers us to take responsibility for our own thoughts and projections. Once you believe that it is in your power to think differently this can be quite inspirational for people.
