Mirroring Not Today’s Agenda

Mirroring Not Today’s Agenda

If you are heading for an interview then remember mirroring could not benefit you rather focus on some other important issue such as appear confident, maintain good eye contact, never cross your arms, keep smiling, talk with hand actions etc.

A study has been recently done regarding Psychological Science, which suggested that mirroring your interviewer's demeanor and mannerisms are not today's choice rather the person has to look and act differently especially if a third party is there to see it.

"Mimicry is a crucial part of social intelligence," Co-author Piotr Winkielman said in a release from the University of California, San Diego. "But it is not enough to simply know how to mimic. It's also important to know when and when not to."

Total three experiments were done; among which, the participants watched one video with an affable interviewer and another with an unfriendly interviewer. It was noticed that the interviewees either mirrored the interviewer (by touching their chin or crossing their legs) or they did not.

Then, the participants were also made to judge the interviewee on general competence, trustworthiness and likability, which resulted in some new theories. Participants noticed that the ones, who mirrored the body language of the unfriendly interviewer showcased, less competing abilities as compared to the interviewees, who remained as they are rather than mirroring someone.
