We all do it to some extent, as long as U don't completely mirror one person-that would be really creepy- it's ok.

Yeah, I would just treat it as an idiosyncrasy, which means your personality is a unique combination of the traits you have adopted from other people + whatever you were like prior to the acquisition of those traits (which applies to everyone). I don't think I'd be bothered, as long as it wasn't done in a malicious way; imitation
is the sincerest form of flattery, after all.

Just little things, of multiple people, who ever I admire I guess. I just find my self speaking slightly differently or walking a little differently or adopting a slightly different attitude. In the past this girl started randomly talking about this woman, who was friends with her Mum and had no personality of her own, so "stole" her Mothers personality. I think she might have been trying to say something to me! I'm not sure why I do it, somebody else once told me that I never fit in- in a jokerly nice kind of a way, she was a friend. But I never do! (fit in). I think I might be trying to fit in. It's really awkward though because as I realize that I'm "doing it again" who ever I'm imitating usually simultaneously realizes it too- and there's this really awkward moment. I want to stop that from happening. Would you accept it? If you knew me, would you just see it as an idiosyncrasy? Or would you get really freaked out? Is it really creepy?(from somebody else's point of view) Thank you, by the way, if ya reply.
Very few people act in exactly the same way in every social situation—they tend to modify their behaviour (even if slightly) to better appeal to the other parties in the social group at any given moment.
