As you work with the basic Yes/No muscle testing, you’ll find there are times when more details are needed to make the right choice. In those cases, using a testing approach that gives you a result that falls in a range will help. Here are some interesting approaches to this type of muscle testing to get you started making better choices.

The Real World is Complicated

It’s time to go home from work. Using Yes/No muscle testing you may ask “Is is best for me to go home on I-510?” You can work through the various routes this way to get a Yes answer. But consider if you want to stop by the dry cleaners on the way home and it’s on one of the routes where you get a “No.”

Range testing taps into your internal sense of the situation. Consider it “brain muscle testing.” For example, in the above scenario, you could ask “On a scale of 0 to 10, with 10 being the best, how good would it be for me to take I-510 home?” Once you’ve asked the question, tune in to the first number that pops into your head. Let’s say you get an 8.

Then ask “On a scale of 0 to 10, with 10 being the best, how good would it be for me to take Route 65, where the dry cleaner is, home?” Let’s say you get a 6.

On a scale of 0 to 10, both numbers are pretty good. I-510 is a little better than Route 65, so normally you’d take that route. But you want to go to the dry cleaners and you got a 6. That means the route will be a little more difficult than the other, but it’s something you can tolerate.

If you got a 0 in response, don’t even think about taking that route. If you got a 10, then don’t hesitate and get on the road using that route.

Using Meters and Gauges

If you have difficulty sensing a number, try visualizing some type of measuring device. Picture a speedometer that goes from 0 to 100 with 0 being the worst choice and 100 the best. Here are some questions to try while visualizing your speedometer:

  • How good would it be for me to see this movie?
  • How good would it be for me to have a beer with dinner?
  • How good would it be for me to buy this cantaloupe?

Notice where the needle on your speedometer goes when you ask the question. Try other gauges and meters until you find one that you like and will use consistently.

Practice using different meters and gauges until you find the one that works best for you. You’ll soon be using this technique throughout your day and you’ll be happier with the choices you make.
