Understanding the mirror, door, and window relationship theory

Understanding the mirror, door, and window relationship theory

Mirror relationship: You see yourself in another person, and this makes you feel good. You might want to be like that other person or you might want to look like them. For example, if your best friend is a beautiful girl who always looks great. Then it can make you feel better about yourself when you see her doing something amazing because she’s modeling those qualities in herself. Let’s talk: Understanding the mirror door and window relationship theory.

mirror relationship

The mirror relationship is a good relationship because it’s easy to understand each other. You see yourself in your partner and your partner sees you in yourself. If you’re ever wondering why someone has broken up with someone else, this is usually the reason why: It was because they couldn’t understand each other properly or communicate effectively.

In addition, the mirror relationship helps build trust between two people who are looking for something more than just sex (or even love). With this strong foundation of trust and understanding, there’s no need for secrecy. You can tell everything about yourself without worrying about what others might think of them!

Door relationship

The door relationship is a friendly one, and it can be anything from a casual acquaintance to a close friend. It’s all about you as a person—how you see yourself and how others see you. The mirror theory says that when doors are closed, people are introverted and shy; when they’re open. We’re more extroverted and talkative. But the door relationship also has another layer beyond this: doors represent our sense of identity: who we want to be based on what comes through them (and so does the mirror). If I feel like I’m not getting enough attention from my friends at work because they spend most of their time talking with each other instead of me? Then maybe that shows up in my interactions with them at work as well!

Window relationship

The window relationship is a theory that describes how you and the other person view each other. It’s based on your view of yourself as a person, as well as their view of you. This can be used to help understand why people do what they do, which in turn provides insight into how to fix them (or at least make them less annoying).

The window relationship theory was first developed in 1966 by psychologist Gordon Allport, who claimed that our interactions with others are influenced by factors such as proximity and size: “The closer we stand together…the more alike are our feelings; then too does size matter.” He also noticed that people tend to look at each other through eight different windows. Four eyes wide open at one end, two closed at another—and concluded that these proportions govern how much we interact with one another physically during an interaction.

mirror, door, and window relationships are based on your view of yourself as a person.

The mirror relationship is the most obvious and easy to understand. You look at yourself in the mirror, and you see a reflection of yourself. This means that your sense of self is based on how others see you, which means that if they don’t like something about their appearance or behavior. They’ll want to change it before they can even begin to accept themselves as they are.

The door relationship is when someone opens up a door for another person who enters through it as an act of kindness or respect. A lot of times this happens accidentally (e.g., someone walks into your office when no one was there). But sometimes people purposely open doors for other people. Whether those individuals need help moving items into place or simply want some privacy while talking on phones outside public buildings during busy times such as holidays where everyone else wants some alone time too!

Finally, windows provide light into rooms without requiring any effort from anyone involved. They’re basically just there so everyone can see what’s happening outside without having all sorts of blinds covering everything up like curtains would do if only…


To summarize, mirror relationships are based on your view of yourself as a person. You can see yourself in another person’s eyes. And vice versa. Door relationships are based on the idea that people use doors as portals to other rooms or places. In this case, doors are used as metaphors for communication between two people who may not know each other very well yet want to be close enough so that they can share their lives together. But there is also an element of privacy involved with these types of relationships because they can sometimes hinder communication altogether.

Lastly – window relationships are based on how you feel when looking out a window into another world far away from home (or even just across town). These sorts of windows bring us closer together. But also give us ideas about how others experience life differently than ourselves (even if only slightly different). All three types can work well together depending on what kind of relationship you want to form with an individual. Whether it’s friendship or love gone wrong…
