Do children recognize more words looking at them up and to the left Ess

In order for the principle of looking up and to the left of a word to work, NL says that there are two main ideologies that need satisfying. Firstly, the subject must be right handed, and secondly, he must be a visual learner. However, similar to the studies of Loiselle and Malloy, the present researcher has worked on the premise that between 60 and 70% of the population is right handed Emes et al (2005), Malone (2003), Heaton et al (2008) and Holliday (1999), and would have, therefore, expected that the hypothesis be true in approximately 23 of the 33 right handed subjects used. Out of this study’s sample of 36, the data showed that only 6 had results that concurred with the hypothesis. As a discrete figure, this could be perceived as showing some evidence to support the hypothesis, yet, 18% could not be considered statistically significant to render it conclusive. This figure became less significant in support of the hypothesis as the children who recalled these words also recalled words shown to the front. When subtracting the results from the controlled variable, the greatest margin was just two words, and this was found in just two children. Interestingly, although this may seem an insignificant amount, it correlated with the results from the research of Loiselle and Malloy, who concluded that the NL principle helped improve visual memory recall by 25%. To illustrate this similarity in results, the present researcher calculated that the difference of recognising 2 more words from the controlled variable to be 20%. Could this mean Loiselle and Malloy studies data proved significant enough evidence to conclude this NL principle worked? The statistics in fig. 1 revealed that the present researcher’s hypothesis was not ... be shrouded by mystery, but strangely, NL trained people do not appear to want to demystify the principle and enhance its credibility. While the VAK in schools may still be enjoying popularity, an alarming thought is that, while it has been endorsed, and compartmentalised children without adequate research into its effectiveness. It is, therefore, concluded that once the good feeling stimulus is taken away from the NL principle of recognising words by looking at them up and to the left, what remains is that the field of vision is insignificant to it, but the basic principle that ‘the brain thinks in terms of images’ remains, Butler-Bowden (2005: 180).This research closes on the thought that Cricket Kemp’s NL principle may actually be based upon hypnotherapy techniques, and, if used by accredited trainers could be a manipulative tool rather than a strategy.
