Mirror Thinking

Mirror Thinking The Unconscious Power of Role Models Murden Fiona Murden

Most of us have someone we look up to and consider a 'role model', whether it's a parent, a teacher or a manager. In fact, a lot of people we come into contact with, whether we consider them a role model or not, probably have more of an impact on us than we realise. The area of the brain that we have to thank for this is our mirror neurone, which learns through imitation, enabling us to grow and develop through the transfer of behaviours and knowledge. Some of this is through conscious learning, but there are many influences we are unaware of. Every interaction we have powerfully imprints on our brain through this neurone, regardless of whether it is something we want to absorb or not. In Mirror Thinking, Fiona Murden uses her experience and insight as a psychologist to empower us to leverage the mirror system to our advantage. Beginning with an introduction to the mirror neurone and its discovery by neuroscientists, Fiona unpacks the psychological principles behind the system in a real and relatable way. Readers are given the skills to consciously harness this knowledge and take more control over this incredible system. She also explores the broader societal implications of the system, including the influence of social media and celebrities, and considers the impact it is having on the younger population of today. Finally, Fiona looks at what it takes to be a great role model to others. If people are mirroring you, what are the things you'd prefer others not to repeat? And what do you want to see played back to you in someone else's behaviour?
