Eating is Influenced by your Companion

A new study has shown that eating behavior of a person is influenced by the partner with whom you are eating. People who eat together tend to mimic each other taking bites at the same time. This characteristic is called behavioral mimicry, the process in which a person unwittingly imitates the behavior of another person. Such an influence may have significant implications in the health and well being of the two people.

The study, conducted by the researchers from Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands, was performed on 70 pairs of college students as they dined together in a local setting. All the participants were women and each pair was given 20 minutes to finish the full meal.
