Imitation is the highest form of flattery, or is it?

Imitation is the highest form of flattery, or is it?
Since the planet Mars is still inconjunct the planet Uranus let's talk about what can happen...#Mirroring is a Uranus thing!

Definition: Mirroring - Imitating or copying another person's characteristics, behaviors or traits.
Borrowing a Self-Image
Mirroring occurs when people with Personality Disorders have a vacant or distorted self-image, which can manifest itself as an imitation of another person’s speech, mannerisms, behaviors, dress style, purchase preferences or daily habits.

In more extreme manifestations of this behavior, the person doing the mirroring might begin to believe they actually are the other person, to the extent they might call themselves by their name, claim to be them or ‘borrow’ elements of the other person’s life such as relationships, past experiences, CAREER or family history and claim these as their own.
