http://xraylistening.com It was fascinating interviewing Tim Ferriss, author of the 4-Hour Work Week, 4-Hour Body and 4-Hour Chef. And if you're interested in metaphor and/or Clean Language, there are several more interesting points here.

If you've ever thought that the Clean Language questions sound funny, notice how Tim responds to them. He's never heard them before, and had no special preparation before this. Do they sound funny to him? I don't think so. They cause him to think new thoughts, but that's another matter. It's not a bad thing in an interview!

Did you think you have to sound like a Dalek to ask the Clean Language questions? Notice how natural the questions sound here.

This may also be an example of what people mean when they say their clients "won't go into metaphor". Tim explores the metaphor, then comes back to the real world, an I guide him back to the metaphor again. That's not unusual in my experience.

Of course, this is not therapy. It's a journalistic interview. I'm not trying to change Tim, or anything about him - though as a Clean enthusiast I wouldn't do that anyway :-)

This short Clean Language piece was at the end of a longer face-to-face interview. If you'd like to hear the whole thing, it's at http://www.xraylistening.com/blog/201...
