Listening, not imitation, may be the sincerest form of flattery.
~Dr. Joyce Brothers

    My first ever comment. ——–
    Regarding Dr. Joyce Brothers comment, I think that listeneing to someone may just be good manners. You can listen to someone and not believe in what they are saying or agree with it either. If these are the case you definitely would NOT want to imitate them. Of course, on the other hand, you may be imitating someone – perhaps someone you observed while growing up (?disfunction perhaps?) and THAT may also NOT be flattery. Besides, it isn’t flattery (a statement) if it is true.
