Term: Mirroring

« Back to Glossary Index

Mirroring – Is to move, or position your limbs in the opposite fashion of another person. If they move their left arm (or leg, or lean their body, etc.), you move your right arm.

At an unconscious level, utilizing your body to “mirror” theirs can create an affect of looking into a mirror, hypothetically creating a reflection of the other person.

This can be useful for establishing rapport, sometimes preparatory for leading or intervening. (see “matching,” “cross-over mirroring,” and “pacing”)
