Skills. We have also gathered lists of personal skills that people generally have in some degree. To provide some organization, we have subdivided the collection into Skills of Self, Skills of Mulling, and Skills of Action. There is considerable overlap because some skills work in more than one way.
If you look over these skills to find the ones you are good at, you may find cues to a wider choice of skills than you regularly use. If one skill does not work on a given problem, you may find another that is more effective.
If you always do what you've always done,

|Signs. No point in talking to the quiet parts of your brain. They donít talk much. Thatís why they are quiet. We put signs around to serve as cues. Thatís in case you begin to take seriously the story about how other parts of your brain work with things like images. If you donít see any reason for using signs when words are easier to handle, donít worry. Thatís just your verbal system talking.||
