The Meta-Model identifies numerous linguistic markers, namely, key words that mark out beliefs. We have just identified a few central ones: "is, makes, causes, equals, equates to," etc. So to identify beliefs, simply listen for:

• Causation statements — how we model the way the world works, functions, relates to itself, etc.

• Equation statements— how we decide and model regarding meaning, what abstractions equate with behaviors, our paradigms of significance.

• Value words and ideas— the model of ideas that we think important and significant.

• Identifications—what things equal other things, what we identify as the same.

• Presuppositions— unquestioned assumptions that we simply assume as true.

To develop skill in hearing such, move to a meta-concepfual position. "Go above and beyond the statements and words that you hear, and think about them from a higher level. Then inquire about the kind of words and patterns that you detect:

"What representational signals do these words imply?" "What affirmations of 'Yes' does this presuppose about some idea?"

"What frames-of-references do they imply?" "What operational beliefs drive these statements?" "What does the person assume as real for this to make sense?"
