NLP 4 tuple – what makes a good storyteller?

Storytelling

NLP 4 tuple is one of the most powerful tools to put some “umpf” in your stories. NLP is also called a “study of excellence.” Basically, very skilled people have been studied (modeled) in order to determine what specifically they do to be excellent. What is definitely a skill is “storytelling”, which is of course part of being a good communicator.

In NLP Training a host of tools are taught in order to enhance communication. In this article I want to focus on 4-tupling an experience. Basically, what makes a good storyteller?

NLP 4-Tuple

Good story tellers, want to help the listener engage. Be present in the story, as if they are experiencing it for real.

A way to effectively achieve this is by 4-tupling:

Example:

This is a story about walking in the forest.

1. Describe what can be heard in the story.

You can hear the rustling of the leaves, twigs breaking with each step you take, some birds chirping some distance away.

2. Describe what can be seen in the story.

You see the forest path in front of you, and as you look up you’ll notice that some sunlight is coming through the thick blanket of dark green leaves.

3. Describe what can be felt in the story.

You feel the twigs breaking underneath your feet as you walk the path, and with each step you take you’ll become more and more relaxed.

4. Describe what can be smelled/tasted in the story.

You can smell the fresh pine trees, etc.

Conclusion

Next time you are listening to a story of someone who you know is a great story teller, pay attention. And you’ll notice that they 4-tuple naturally.
