Sometimes you have to be genuine with people to show them yourself. Asking the right questions to people causes their mind to open and they begin to share their wisdom with. you. Ask the right question may not always work right away. You may need to gain trust from the person or give your own wisdom before they do so that they reflect you. People are sometimes like mirrors or a tunnel, they will reflect yourself on to you or others, as well as echo your words. Perhaps we echo to better understand, but I don’t know for sure. When I echo words people say it’s because I find it funny. The act of repeating can’t really be blamed because that’s how we learned as children “repeat after me”.
