Recognizing And Challenging Limiting Meta Programs

Concept. If the way we interact in a conversation seems problematic and unproductive, it may indicate mis-matched Meta-programs or some cognitive distortion. We find cognitive distortions in the twelve distinctions of the Meta-model. These show up as "'ill— formedness" in expression, structure, or meaning. Typically, these become especially unproductive when we over-use them. We have noted some of the Meta-model "violations" in the list of cognitive distortions (Figure 8.3).

Because the Meta-programs describe how we think (or sort), they refer to our thinking styles. As such, Meta-programs create difficulty for us when we over-use them or use them in inappropriate contexts (e.g., when they become driver Meta-programs).
