Mirror neuron

I have been living on my own for the past few years. I have control over whom to meet, where to eat and whom to indulge with. It has made my life much saner. I am not indulging with people I don’t like. I got to learn about this concept of Mirror neuron.

A mirror neuron is a neuron that fires both when an animal acts and when the animal observes the same action performed by another. Thus, the neuron “mirrors” the behavior of the other, as though the observer were itself acting. Such neurons have been directly observed in primate species.

We act and behave like people around us? Imagine working with a team of sexist or dopamine driven members.
