So, I understand how to do mirroring and matching (in theory, I need to practise it practically) but one thing I can’t find online is, would wearing similar clothes to the person or having a similar hair style work too? For example, if we both wore a shirt, not an identical shirt, or both wore a similar kind of shoe, etc.
Or am I kind of misunderstand Mirroring and Matching?

Also, how can I tell whether I am mirroring the other person or I am mirroring them?

Thanks. ✌️

No i don't think you should go for similar clothes, i think it's more about body language really

Depends in what type of context you're talking about tbh

Something to note is, you might have heard the phrase 'imitation is the best form of flattery?' I think it would normally depend on the person whether it was a compliment or annoying.
Personally I think if you were matching them it would be more along the lines of actions & words and not your really being "you"; whereas mirroring is putting your own twist on things so to speak.
