MIRRORING

is the process of emulating, or copying exactly the behaviours, speech, and characteristics of another individual. Therapists can sometimes employ mirroring techniques to come across as empathizing with their patients.

MIRRORING: "When an individual, through choice or in a study copies the behaviours of another, they're said to be mirroring each other."
