    Yeah, I don't understand what "mirroring" is either.

    Can anyone explain?

    ^mirroring is a term in psychoanalysis when parent is looking at child and reflects with appreciation child's atributes, and needs. that way child gets sense for Self because his self is acknowledged. You know, a spark in parents eye is what child sees...

In other words, children need to idealize and emotionally "sink into" and identify with the idealized competence of admired figures. They also need to have their self-worth reflected back ("mirrored") by empathic and caregiving others. These experiences allow them to thereby learn the self-soothing and other skills that are necessary for the development of a healthy (cohesive, vigorous) sense of self.
    the same some people do to others, draw their potential out, which makes them good conselours...NFs mostly.

    companion, then seeker.

    BC, this is .... to see the promise in them and then try and show it to them... You mold yourself around them to fit their needs in order to allow them maximal room for positive growth. It fits the enfp chameleon description very well.

    I'm used to seeing that signature picture of yours (which IIRC, you've had up longer than the avatar you're using now). So I wasn't sure.
