Presentation Title

The Friendly Chameleon: Mimicry Behavior in Progressing Relationships

Location

Meyer Auditorium

Abstract

Previous research shows that mimicry behavior is an evolutionary adaptation to human behavior. This chameleon effect is characterized by a person’s unconsciously motivated behavior that mimics another person’s behavior as a means to make an interpersonal connection. Based on our study using naturalistic observation we found support for the hypothesis that there is a significant correlation between mimicry behavior and the presence of a long-term relationship.
