Re: Ch. 3 - Reciprocity with a Vengeance
This goes in hand with my "mirror neuron" strategy I use from time to time.
Sometimes I'll pick out a mean, don't bother me looking face at random before walking by the subject.
I'll put on a near exaggerated, happy look on my face for the person to see.
Almost always, the second the person sees my facial expression, they mirror it.
One time I was tracking a coworker on the freeway who hadn't seen me in the lane beside him.
I noticed he had a very happy expression on his face. Before I drove up along side him (at the nornal, LA traffic speed - very slow) I made a very long, serious looking face.
The moment he saw me looking at him, I saw his expression change immediately to a mirror image of mine. When he had time to process who it was looking at him, he smiled.
It was really funny
I'm clever, huh?
