Is it just me, or do Sherlock and John both make the same funny face?

Mirroring.  It’s where one person copies another person’s body language.  It’s a (usually unconscious) sign of being in agreement/social harmony with them.  A demonstration of empathic connection, basically.

We tend to mirror people we’re close to a lot—friends, family, lovers.  It’s why old married couples sometimes start “looking alike” to us.  Ahem.

Great stuff, by the way, for a job interview or flirting.  People usually don’t even notice you’re doing it; they just start feeling more favorable towards you.

Also it’s darling.
