At first Milson Model was considered as weird model because it's different from Meta Model.
Milton H. Erickson --a very well-known hypnotherapist at that time (around the 70s) used a different approach to heal his clients.
While Meta Model used direact approach --by asking the clients directly-- Milton used disguised words by telling stories to his clients.
Why did he use such way? Well, here arethe reasons:
-It can trigger trance condition -- Milton wanted everything to happen as natural as possible so he decided to use a different approach.
- The things he said can enter the subconscious mind --the disguised words Milton used can distract the brain and make the subconscious mind be entered easily.
-It can stimulate Transderivational Search -- words Milton used had ambiguities that will trigger the TDS to find out what the words really meant.
Basically, Milton Model is the opposite of Meta Model.
