What's the psychology behind copying behaviour
« on: August 07, 2018, 09:11:33 pm »
For example, someone very much junior to you whom u liaise with closely likes to copy:

The way you post things daily
The way you share your joy to others
All In similar styles, sometimes immediately after you have posted.
Like to copy the way you name things as well.

How to combat such behaviour?
What is their intention?
Is it to learn from me or to irritate me? I can't tell.
But on the surface the person is very nice and helpful though by action it yields no apparent results  :-[

N I don't understand y the person has to copy me instead of others who might be more "successful" I mean there are alot. How to divert his attention to others.

I'm worried because we currently have a "symbiotic" relationship. Seemingly this "symbiotic" relationship in the short term didn't yield both of us any benefit. I wonder if one day if ever we hv to go separate would we be directly competing .. Which is why this copying is making me  :-[ :-[

Normally for me, if people copy me, I feel like they are either treating me like their leader (either my friends, classmates, colleague, someone close etc) or mocking at me (my enemy). I have enemy who likes mocking at me during my secondary school days, so I believe he was insulting my personalities or bad habit, such as usually he don't dig his nose(my bad habit), but after I become his enemy, he would dig his nose often and his friends always laugh at it. This really makes me angry >:( As for friends, it depends the way he/she treats usually treats me like if he/she treats me as an ignorant person and copying me, I feel that he/she is mocking at me. That is how I feel about the psychology behind copying behavior.

He treats me well in words but in actions there is on the surface good actions with zero effects, which is quite anomalous because I work with different parties too. (I hope it's not on purpose?) ???
So I dunno copying is treating as leader or mocking.
But I feel taunted and triggered sometimes as I feel it's a "come challenge me".
But probably it's occupational hazard ba, ppl tend to want to compete and want to win. So perhaps I should not think too much.

But I sort of want to withdraw from this relation in a manner which will not impose any costs on Me but idk how to. It's like now we're symbiotic you already doing this, what happens when we separate? Are you gonna copy everything wholesale and wage a war.

Maybe I should not think too much, even if I have not known him maybe he also would be doing wad he is gonna do, which explains y he approach me in the first place. Kind of regretted accepting the opportunity  :-X
