NLP Rep Test

Taking The Test

‘The Meaning Of Communication Is The Response We Get’

One of the many discoveries made in NLP is that people process the world around them by mostly one, or more primary senses.
You will have heard people say phrases such as, “I see what you mean” or “I need to touch base with you”. These are not just habitual phrases-they are an insight into how that person’s mind is working and a great clue for building rapport through the use of language.
The Representational Preference Test (REP test for short!) takes around 5 minutes to complete and enables you to identify, and be consciously aware of yours, and others, primary representational system.
Once you have this information you can start to identify preferences and learn to communicate in a way that truly links with the unconscious mind and builds strong rapport.

Learn your own primary representational system by completing the test below…

For each of the following statements, please assign a number to every phrase. Use the following system to indicate your preferences:
4. Best description of you.
3. Next best description.
2. Next best description.
1. Least descriptive of you.
If you have trouble deciding between two phrases, go with the first thought that comes to mind.


Interpreting Your Results

Now you have your Representational system scores, let us explain a little more about what they mean and the specific use of language for each system. This information is really useful to support you in recognising the preferred communication of those you interact with and learning to adapt your language to achieve the greatest impact. It will also help you understand why you may struggle to engage with certain people

  • Often have trouble remembering verbal instructions because their minds tend to wander.
