Olfactory perception refers to smelling and can be used as a reinforcement in hypnosis. Humans perceive their environment through five sensory channels. The abbreviation VAKOG from the NPL (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) stands for the five sensory channels and results from their initial letters:
  • Visual: see
  • Auditory: hear
  • Kinesthetic: feel
  • Olfactory: smell
  • Gustatory: taste
We ultimately represent the experiences and how we perceive them as neural coding. Thereby we often have a preferred representation system, since the senses are differently pronounced with everyone. Which one this is, we can read off well from our linguistic formulations. If yours were the olfactory one, for example, you would tend to use olfactory language and words. This might look like, for example, "This stinks to high heaven," "I can smell you just fine," or "I'm fed up." In hypnosis, the preferred representational system can be useful because it facilitates access to the subconscious and repressed memories.
