This post is about the mirroring technique used by narcissists to lure people in and make them think that they share your feelings and beliefs. This technique is used during the idealization phase.

The idealization phase is the first phase of narcissistic abuse. It is the time they lure in their target, gather personal information to use against them later and begin brainwashing and conditioning processes.

The mirroring technique is one of the main ones used during the idealization phase.

This mirroring technique comes from NLP and it is a neutral technique of creating a rapport with other people. It can be used for good purposes by good people. But like all good things, it can be used for malicious purposes by someone who has insidious intentions.

This post included a great video by an NLP practitioner.  His intention in the video is to teach teach the mirroring as something to be used by good people and there is no evil intent in his video. I am only using the video in my post because it does a good job of explaining how we psychologically respond to mirroring.

    It helps to know who the creeper is. Oh well, I’ll just stick to my rule of no inter-state dating. Sick.

      Hi. It is nice to hear from you. I am not sure what inter-state dating is. Can you elaborate?
      Any good safety rules you have are welcome.

      I have learned everything I know about narcissists and red flags from other people on the internet. The more we learn the safer we are.

      Internet dating like Match.com can be hazardous. I tried it and ran into lots of demanding, manipulative, self centered guys.
