What do you call someone who copies everything you do?
Someone who mimics what you do or say is a copycat. If your little brother orders fettuccine Alfredo after youve already ordered it, you might call him a copycat. The word copycat is a lighthearted, gently derogatory word for a person who imitates someone else.
Is imitating good or bad?
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, or so the saying goes. Imitation can get a bad reputation, but researchers say our species drive to imitate so readily is a significant mechanism through which we learn social norms, integrate into society, and build social connection.
