Abstract:

In this experiment, a confederate was asked to mimic the posture and movements of participants who, subsequently, completed the French version (Pelletier & Vallerand, 1990) of the Scheier and Carver (1985) Self-consciousness Scale. Results showed that mimicry was associated with increased private and public self-consciousness and decreased social anxiety. Such data confirmed that mimicry is associated not only with changes in perception about a mimicker but also has an effect on self-perception of the person mimicked.
