Criteria - another method

The previous method of eliciting criteria started with something of small importance. This mehod starts at the other end and takes something that is important. The main question is:

What's important to you about (item)?

Normally, you will get three or four criteria. You can ask again and the next ones will often come in a group of three or four. You need to elicit about eight criteria.

What is important to you about life?

To be free

To be happy

To be important.

No. These are goals. What we want are criteria ...

  1. Freedom
  2. Happiness
  3. Challenge
  4. Change

What else is important about life?

  1. Learning
  2. Discovery
  3. Making a better world

OK. We have got seven. Let's put them in order:


Which is most important to you?

Happiness.


Is happiness more important then freedom?

If I were free but unhappy, I don't think it would be good.

If you were happy but there was no challenge, would that be OK?

Yes

............


What is the second most important thing after happiness?

Freedom.

Is freedom more important than having a challenge?

Yes!

.........

Is freedom more important than making a better world?

No.

OK. Is making a better world the second item?

Yes.


Restart on the second item.

Is making a better world more important than a challenge?

Yes.

............


What is the next most important thing after happiness, making a better world?

Freedom?

Here is the list so far:

  1. Happiness
  2. Making a better world
  3. Freedom
  4. Learning
  5. Challenge
  6. Change
  7. Discovery

Is freedom more important than having a learning?

Well, that's a hard one because learning is important to me. But learning and not being free would not be OK because if I were free I could find or choose some learning. (Higher order values tend to include the lower ones.)

If you were free, but there was no challenge would it be OK?

Yes.

........


Here is the list so far:

  1. Happiness
  2. Making a better world
  3. Freedom
  4. Learning
  5. Challenge
  6. Change
  7. Discovery

 

What is next in importance after being free?

Learning

(Check by comparing with other items as above!)

Final list in order:

  1. Happiness
  2. Making a better world
  3. Freedom
  4. Learning
  5. Challenge
  6. Discovery
  7. Change

The above is the list in the order of importance. Interesting the subject exressed concerns about money, but money is not on the list! In order to put money on the list, we need to first elicit the submodalities for the top item.
