Self Regulation via Pseudo-Schizophrenia

I read about this technique on self-regulation and changed the name in the title to give that fake sciency sound so popular in academic papers.  The way it works is if you encounter a distracting temptation, you treat the temptation as an unruly passenger on a bus and you (the driver) go read them the riot act for their intrusion.  I played with it a bit and reminded me of the whole NLP “parts” thing that John Grinder and Richard Bandler spoke about in their approach to reframing.  In the NLP approach if I recall correctly, you negotiated with your parts to find some kind of rapprochement or even “installed” parts.  It would be like adding a passenger to your personality bus.  Anyway I found it somewhat effective to deal with minor distractions.
