B. Mirror & Match

A Deeper Look at Rapport

We tend to build rapport more easily with people who are similar to us. The concept of mirroring is based on limbic synchrony, which is our natural tendency to concurrently adapt body postures and other mannerisms of people we like or agree with. Thus, when done deliberately, mirroring can help build trust and comfort that would in turn establish rapport.

Matching is another Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) technique that is very similar to mirroring. However, while mirroring is about reflecting what the other person is doing, matching diverges in the level or degree of emulation; you reflect a more general rather than a precise image of the other person.

Mirroring and matching must be applied with subtlety and discretion. There are also situations where mirroring and matching are not applicable or must be used carefully. (i.e., when the other person is angry, reprimanding or condescending.)
