|dc.description.abstract||People often mimic each other. Research has examined the positive social benefits of mimicry and is starting to examine what factors lead to increased mimicry. Two studies examine whether a participant is more likely to mimic nonverbal behavior of someone who shares the same opinion as the participant than someone who does not. The participant made a decision between 2 vacation destinations and discussed the choice in a 3 person group. The 2 other group members were confederates. One agreed with the participant¿s choice and one disagreed. Each confederate emitted a different nonverbal behavior consistently throughout discussion. Results support the hypothesis that the participant would be more likely to mimic nonverbal behavior of the confederate who agreed with him or her.||en|
