4. Try mirroring

❌ close

As promised, here are some mirroring techniques to try...🪞

  • Watch the other person’s body language: gestures, posture, expressions. Match them like a mirror
  • Vibe check: are they shy or outgoing? Behave in the same way to avoid coming across too strongly or dull
  • Match your language: are they using simple, direct language or speaking in technical terms? Use language to match and reiterate favourite phrases or words.
  • Match your speech: Are they speaking fast and loud or quiet and slowly? Speed up or slow down to mirror them.
